Wow! That's remarkable! [In reply to] Can't Post

That snorty thing he does with his voice is absolutely phenomenal. I can't even imagine the difficulty of projecting that to a large audience, and even annunciating... Andy truly is the man for the job! Truly an inspiration.

Me too. [In reply to] Can't Post

I'd love to hear either him or Chris Lee do an audiobook of The Lord of the Rings.

That man is such a delight! [In reply to] Can't Post

I don't know what I was expecting... but he is so effortless in his Gollum/Smeagol voice. His energy is infectious :D

Thank you for this!!






I really need these new films to take me back to, and not re-introduce me to, that magical world.

Why was this thread moved twice? [In reply to] Can't Post

I posted it here, it got moved to Tolkien main, then back here again.

Make up your minds. Crazy

I think [In reply to] Can't Post

the Admin that first moved it didn't realize there was a Hobbit-related interview in the video, so they moved it to Main. I moved it back because the Hobbit-related interview definitely pertains to this board. We did leave post markers so people could easily find it by clicking on the marker link. Sorry for any confusion! Smile

Unaware of this thread. I love it when actors do this, like when Robert Downey and Johnny Depp could play their characters in front of kids without needing prep: shows you how much they live those characters now.
