Albert Dreary

Albert Dreary is a concept which has only appeared in an adaptation of the works of J.R.R. Tolkien.

Albert Dreary was a drunken man outside the Prancing Pony inn in Bree seen crunching a carrot in The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring, played by Peter Jackson.[1] Jackson reprised a similar character at the beginning of The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, again appearing outside the Prancing Pony eating a carrot.[2]
