Doesn't seem right

That studios don't pay the actors on films like these that are guaranteed to make them100's of millions in profit...that's just pure greed...the actors do some of the hardest and most important work in a film (especially characters like Sam), and shareholders reap all the benefits..!?

OK maybe for LOTR movies (or at least the first one), but after you know the movies to follow will make huge profits, it is pure capitalistic greed that would not pay lead actors a fair share. I would think Jackson (a mulit-millionaire because of LOTR films) would at least look after his lead actors better, if the studio shareholders are unwilling to part with a couple of million in pocket change..!?

I meant to add...do you know Martin Freeman? Just curious as to why you don't think he will be cast..
