Peter Jackson has confirmed the latest casting rumor via his Facebook page today: it seems Evangeline Lilly, well-known for her portrayal of Kate Austen on ABC's 'LOST,' as well as for her former relationship with 'Lord of the Rings' actor Dominic Monaghan, has been added to the cast of 'The Hobbit.' Peter Jackson has confirmed that she will be playing a new character - Tauriel, whose name means "daughter of Mirkwood."

In addition to Evangeline Lilly, Barry Humphries will also be joining the cast, portraying the Goblin King (in the same way that Andy Serkis portrayed Gollum).
