Barry Humphries stars as the Great Goblin in Peter Jackson's "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey," "The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug" and "The Hobbit: There and Back Again."

Barry Humphries is an Australian comedian, character actor, script writer and film producer, an award-winning writer and a star of London's West End musical theater.

Humphries is perhaps best known as his onstage and television alter-egos, the universally adored international housewife and Gigastar, Dame Edna Everage, and the foul-mouthed Sir Les Patterson.

He has appeared in a plethora of films including "Bedazzled," "Nicholas Nickleby," "Spice World," and as the voice of Bruce the Shark in "Finding Nemo." He is an instant sellout each time he appears on Broadway and in the West End. He most recently appeared with Dick Whittington as "The Saviour of London Town" at the New Wimbledon Theatre.

Humphries appeared as a judge in 2008 on BBC 1's "I'd Do Anything," the search for the new Nancy and Oliver, and an episode of the comedy panel quiz "QI" series 7. Dame Edna's most recent television appearances include "Chatty Man," "Comedy Rocks with Jason Manford," "Paul O'Grady Live" and "The Rob Brydon Show."

Humphries was honored with the 2011 Oldie of the Year award.
