Watch Andy Serkis read The Hobbit with his Gollum voice

Actor helps celebrate 75th anniversary of book by reading precious text

More Friday fun - here's a video clip from earlier in the week of actor Andy Serkis, best known for creating the Gollum character in the Lord of the Rings movies (and the upcoming film of The Hobbit).


As part of this entertainment report, Serkis reads from a portion of the book to fans, but using his Gollum voice. Very nice, Mr. Serkis.

Just as a reminder, The Hobbit hits theaters on December 14.
