I'm 5ft 11... [In reply to] Can't Post

Same height as Sir Ian, Orlando and Viggo. Yet more importantly, slightly shorter than John Rhys Davies. ;)

Thanks for the ongoing support everyone.

Please keep visiting my YouTube page and leaving comments on my "The Hobbit - Misty Mountains" video to help my cause.

Best of luck buddy! Wink

Porthos [In reply to] Can't Post

The first time I saw Brian Blessed was in The Three Musketeers as Porthos. I think I'm the only person in this forum who hasn't seen Black Adder yet.

George Lucas made him do some teerrrrrrilbe things in The Phantom Menace. Wink

the necromancer [In reply to] Can't Post

Why are there actors even being suggested for the part of the Necromancer? Isn't he in fact the Witchking of Angmar, a wraith, and thus faceless? I think giving him a face/personality would elicit some geek-tantrums from myself and perhaps a few others.

If more of us valued food and cheer and song above hoarded gold, it would be a merrier world.
