John Rhys-Davies, who also plays Gimli in Peter Jackson’s Lord of the Rings, will do double-duty as the voice of Treebeard.
Here is what Harry Knowles of Ain’t It Cool News has to report:
Hey folks, Harry here… I heard rumblings about this rumor while I was in New Zealand, but I just got the following e-mail in confirming it and acknowledging that the contract is signed to have John Rhys-Davies voice TREEBEARD!!! With that rich baritone sound… John will be lending his voice to the Eldest of living beings in Middle Earth. The Treebeard toy from Weta and Sideshow will be, something to marvel at… The real Treebeard used for the live-action scenes with Treebeard was simply amazing. So celebrate and be happy…. the voice of Sallah is in!!!!
