Help us get Karl Pilkington in The Hobbit!

Join our Facebook campaign to get a role for the round-headed one


We love the inspired/imbecilic ramblings of orange-headed genius/fool Karl Pilkington.

What better way to celebrate our love of all things Pilks than to try and get him a part as some kind of Middle-Earth creature thing in the upcoming Hobbit movie - if we get enough names, Del Toro we'll have to listen - so we'll need your help!

Described by Ricky Gervais as “the funniest man alive”, Karl Pilkington is the reluctant star of the Ricky Gervais Show series of podcasts and audiobooks.

We think The Hobbit is the perfect place for him to launch an illustrious – but ill-deserved - film career.

Also, Total Film is a friend of Hobbit director Guillermo del Toro, so if we can get enough support for this campaign, we’ll be able to pass it on to him directly!

Join up and help us get him a part in The Hobbit - he'll really hate it!

      What is it with this magazine's f**king obsession with Ricky Gervais?

      This article isn't about Ricky Gervais. At all. It's about Karl Pilkington. But since you asked, he's "f**king" hilarious. Get over it.

      Karl Pilkington: "Why's it called a window? It doesn't win anything and it isn't made of dough..." Repeat such observations ad nauseam (Ricky Gervais laughs a lot) That just about sums up "the funniest man alive" - get over it TF, this is almost as bad as the obsession with Fight Club and "the film-maker of the decade(!)" Judd Apatow

      Nuh. Getting Andy Parsons a part as a victim in the next Saw film would be much more fulfilling to watch.

      Christ forbid a FILM website being excited and having fun about FILM... One can get a Sense Of Humour on prescription nowadays, perhaps y'all ^ should consult your local GP?

      Anyone that doesn't get Karl Pilkington doesn't get comedy that isn't born out of smugness and intellectual wordplay. So yeh, he should get a highly paid part in the Hobbit, what can he play though? A round headed orc I suppose.
