Hobbit star Billy's all dolled up.

LORD Of The Rings star Billy Boyd is giving up being a hobbit - to become an evil doll in the latest Chucky movie.

The Scot will provide a voice-over in the black comedy The Seed of Chucky.

And his own facial characteristics will be used for the twisted puppet.

The movie is the fourth in the notorious Chucky series, about a doll which comes to life and kills. The films have made more than pounds 300million.

Boyd, 36, who will be playing Chucky's son Glen, said: 'It's a real weird story and I think it will make people laugh, and I think it will terrify people rigid. That's what Chucky movies are supposed to do.'

Glasgow-born Billy recorded his dialogue at a studio in London.

In one scene, the dolls take part in the road-rage killing of a Britney Spears lookalike. The real life pop star was so concerned, her management asked for the scene to be removed.

Instead, the movie now carries the disclaimer: 'No actual Britney Spears were harmed in the making of this film.'

Frank Cannon, an apology

IN LAST week's Sunday Mail, we published an article about Frank Cannon under the headline Cannon Fired.

Mr Cannon has complained that this article insinuates that he was engaged in the business of money laundering for gangland figures.

It was not the intention of the Sunday Mail to make any such insinuation, and we are happy to state on record that any such insinuation would be wholly unwarranted and untrue.

Any such insinuation is accordingly unequivocally withdrawn.

We apologise sincerely to Mr Cannon for any distress which he may have been occasioned by the article; and for any blemish to the reputation of Frank Cannon and the firm of Cannons Law Partnership.
