Perian vs. the Pirate - Another Poll to Swamp Can't Post

Jan alerted us to an ongoing poll at film.com: The Best Male Performance of the '00s. It's down to the 'Elite 8,' two of whom are non other than Elijah Wood, for his role as Frodo Baggins in The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Rings, and Johnny Depp, for his role as Jack Sparrow in Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl. Follow the link, and scroll down to vote! film.com poll

I didn't think he'd get past the last round [In reply to] Can't Post

not for lack of my repeated voting of course...Glad he made it to the next round...

there seem to be a lot of comments re: how difficult it was that Depp created a character out of nothing...and that it was easier for Elijah to "be" Frodo...Obviously they've never met a Tolkien fan...lol.

What do you think is more difficult...Personally I think that creating a viable Frodo that could please me and the general non reading public was a greater feat than creating a character of whimsy...No one could ever say, Jack Sparrow was nothing like they imagined he'd be....

I am obsessed, but I am in excellent company.

I think it was harder to carry a movie that came with "expectations" and I said so... [In reply to] Can't Post

in the comments. Boy there are a lot of sour grapes there. I am indeed a FanofBothMovies, but though I love Cap'n Jack, I think Elijah had the harder job.
