oh! [In reply to] Can't Post

quite so, silverlode! : ) indeed.

but all that pounding of the noggin against the doors, those hours in the makeup chair, all those hot days under flame-retardant prosthetics +do+ take their toll...

here's a recent pic in which jed is mistaking aiden's rear end for the gates of minas tirith...

jed's little mistake

cheers --


aka. fili orc-enshield
the scene, as i understand it, is exceptionally well-written. fili (in sort of a callback to the scene with the eagles), calls out "thorRIIIIIIN!!!" just as he sees the pale orc veer in for the kill. he picks up the severed arm of an orc which is lying on the ground, swings it up in desperation, effectively blocking the pale orc's blow. and thus, forever after, fili is known as "fili orc-enshield."

this earns him deep respect from his hard-to-please uncle. as well as a hug. kili wipes his boots on the pale orc's glory box. -- maciliel telpemairo

Huan's voice: short job for Christopher Lee, then ? // [In reply to] Can't Post


Disclaimers: The words of noWizardme may stand on their heads! I'm often wrong about things, and its fun to be taught more....

"nowimë I am in the West, Furincurunir to the Dwarves (or at least, to their best friend) and by other names in other lands. Mostly they just say 'Oh no it's him - look busy!' "
Or "Hold off! unhand me, grey-beard loon!"

My Choices [In reply to] Can't Post

I have always pictured Jennifer Connelly as Luthien. Jet black hair, green eyes, and natural grace. And she's a truly good actress. Yes, she's 42 but she is still gorgeous and youthful-looking, yet she has the maturity and gravity needed for Luthien.

For Beren I've always imagined Eric Bana: he does ruggedly handsome very well, and he's also a good, versatile actor. Christian Bale is another possibility (though I've always imagined him as Turin).
