Behind the scenesEdit

  • Pete Dreary was portrayed by Peter Jackson in a cameo in The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, who was the director, writer, and producer of the film trilogy and also cameoed in An Unexpected Journey as a Dwarf and Basket Man in a deleted scene of the second film, but all three roles were uncredited.
  • Peter had repeated his role as Albert from The Fellowship of the Ring, when Frodo Baggins and his friends headed for the Prancing Pony in Bree, Albert appeared eating a carrot and belched after them and said that his character in the second film was the great-grandfather of that character in Fellowship. Although Peter called him "Carrot Man", Albert's name was identified in a Decipher Card of The Lord of the Rings trading card game and in Internet Movie Database (IMDB).
