He is such a HUGE fan! I'm delighted that he's got such a fabulous lineup! Thanks for the heads-up! :D

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

I've moved this thread [In reply to] Can't Post

because it could go on Main or Movie: Hobbit - but on Main it won't get buried within half a day.

Celebrimbor: "Pretty rings..."
Dwarves: "Pretty rings..."
Men: "Pretty rings..."
Sauron: "Mine's better."

"Ah, how ironic, the addictive qualities of Sauronís master weapon led to its own destruction. Which just goes to show, kids - if you want two small and noble souls to succeed on a mission of dire importance... send an evil-minded beggar with them too." - Gandalf's Diaries, final par, by Ufthak.

fwiw: I'd love to see similar threads on this subtopic... [In reply to] Can't Post

of actors/directors appearing on tv shows.. go on Main where they will linger longer.

I'll add a couple of pieces of info:

There was the story on TORn's Home Page about Anderson Cooper's program Anderson Live.
http://www.theonering.net/...t-live-in-nyc-dec-4/
He will be interviewing cast members on Dec 4 and you can get tickets (if there are any left). I don't think it's airing that day (which begs the question, 'Live'?). And it doesn't show up on Zap2It's list of upcoming shows for him.


Live! With Kelly and Michael
Mon 12/3 : Ian McKellen
Wed 12/5 : Elijah Wood

And, on the Today Show, I heard a promo for Rock Center With Brian Williams that Ann Curry was going to interview Peter Jackson but I didn't catch the date and it's not showing up on any the listings, yet.

In response to this news, [In reply to] Can't Post

I suffered what I consider to be the appropriate number of spasms. I was hoping for at least one night of "Hobbit"-themed goodness; a week is better. I knew I loved that man!

He must be thrilled that he has his own show during this trilogy's release. It must have killed him to watch Jon get all the good interviews last time around! (Even if Viggo was nice enough to send Stephen some chocolatey goodness when he appeared on "The Daily Show." Did anyone else love that audio clip of Stephen explaining Aragorn's lineage?)

I wish I was in New York! I would pay to see Stephen fangirl all over Sir Ian on Monday. I hope he doesn't disappoint me (though he couldn't possibly).

Being in the studio audience [In reply to] Can't Post

for one of these episodes would be fan-tastic.

(By the way, Hobbit_Poet, welcome to TORN!)

FAN-tastic is right! [In reply to] Can't Post

Thank you! I've been a member for a little while. . .just a really, really quiet member.

I just grabbed this off of TCR's Facebook page. Such a great title for the week!
