That’s Sir Peter Jackson to You


Peter Jackson's name will forever be preceded by the title "sir" now that his native New Zealand has decided that he should be knighted. Queen Elizabeth II, who is still New Zealand's official head of state, will sanction the honor, which goes to Jackson for his "services to film." To show his thanks, Jackson will give the Queen a bit part in The Hobbit.
