Peter Jackson on Today show Can't Post

Awesome greetings fellow Ringers!
Just saw a very cool interview of Ann Curry talking with Pete Jackson about the Hobbit. Who doesn't want a little dish from the man himself right?
Double good news being that there is going to be more of his interview on Rock Center with Brian Williams tonight (Dec.6th) on NBC!
As for me this Trilogy gal will be tuning in!
RangerLady out.

Ann Curry w/Sir PJ in NZ on NBC “Rock Center” [In reply to] Can't Post

I completely forgot about this last night, but caught part of the program as I was flipping through the channels, and managed to immediately record what I was able to watch ... I didn’t miss much of the segment, it turned out, but my recording w/few-minute skip at the beginning is really not something I’d want to post. However, NBC (and the program, “Rock(efeller) Center”) has its own archives online!

First, the article of the NBC News exclusive.

Then there are a handful of videos of the program, split into shorter, more manageable clips for the viewers:

NBC “Rock Center w/Brian Adams”: Ann Curry interviews Sir Peter Jackson on location in Wellington, New Zealand:

“The Hobbit” director on bringing Tolkien classic to screen

“The Hobbit” director on making “LOTR” prequel

Controversy on “The Hobbit”’s groundbreaking technology

Behind the scenes of “The Hobbit” w/the director

These 4 clips do not show the complete segment of the program, still. There’s a part when PJ talked about “King Kong” and his childhood (which we all already know, I’m sure), and there’s a photograph of his parents; they also brushed on the lady he trusts most in his life, Fran Walsh, then mentioned about the kids, plus all the cameos in his own movies...

When PJ divulged he finally took a look at the movie for the first time as a final, finished product the night before, Ann quickly interrupted, “Well, what didya think?” w/a quizzical look on her face, to which PJ humbly and laughingly replied that he “thought it was ok...” Then he quickly added there’s “still a few little tweaks” to go through...

Enjoy (watching it again, if you like)!
