Hobbits are on the brain for many of us these days, in anticipation of the upcoming first installment in Peter Jackson's The Hobbit trilogy. So the timing seems perfect for Dominic Monaghan to play a front-and-center role in a TV series. Before Lost and FlashForward, the actor made a name for himself playing hobbit Merry Brandybuck in The Lord of the Rings trilogies, and these days he's putting his appreciation for wildlife to entertaining use with a new travel-adventure series coming to BBC America.
Wild Things with Dominic Monaghan began airing this month in the U.K. on Channel 5 and arrives stateside in January, when it will air on BBC America. It features the star as he travels across the world in search of dangerous animals. It sounds like a risky endeavor, but one that will not only show off Monaghan's hosting abilities but also allow him to enthuse about wildlife for our entertainment. Here's BBC America's official description for the show.
It sounds like a fun series, especially for those of us who are fans of Monaghan and want to see him trekking across the globe, if not Middle Earth. Of course, the mentioned "badass animals" may make some viewers a bit squeamish. Here are a few photos shared on the
Wild Things with Dominic Monoghan Facebook page.
