Hobbit wannabes have another chance to land a part in the upcoming blockbuster movies.

A casting call for extras in Wellington tomorrow is likely to be the last chance to audition to be a part of Sir Peter Jackson's much anticipated films.

However, production company 3foot7 warns they are looking for specific sorts of people to don the hairy feet.

Hopefuls need to be over 16 and meet certain hobbit height requirements - men need to be under 163cm tall and women under 155cm.

They are also looking for slim and athletic men and women between 165 and 203cm, and anyone with a "character" face.

The auditions are being held at Belmont Hall between 1pm and 4pm tomorrow.
