Will someone please add a large picture of Albert Dreary in The Desolation of Smaug, please (Hobbiton777 (talk) 21:30, February 21, 2014 (UTC))?

Intentional cameo?

I've seen a couple of "movie facts" posts on Instagram that suggest the Fellowship cameo wasn't actually planned, but Jackson was filmed munching on a carrot on the set without his knowledge (possibly as a joke on him) and he put it in the film. Is this confirmed anywhere? Presumably the Smaug appearance would have been an in-joke callback. And there is precedent for a character that becomes meme-worthy being given name and backstory after the fact (for example, the stormtrooper that bumps his head on a door in Star Wars: A New Hope). 23skidoo (talk) 23:29, April 29, 2020 (UTC)

Hello 23skidoo! Here is a video where Peter Jackson talks about the history of his cameo. You can skip to minute 2:00 for that part. Have a nice evening! ArwenUdomiel (talk) 00:50, April 30, 2020 (UTC)
