Freeman on Being "The Hobbit" Can't Post


A short interview with a few comments I haven't heard before. Nice ones about Ian McKellen.

Interesting, what he had to say about looking Ian McKellan in the eye. [In reply to] Can't Post

Or not looking him in the eye, as it were. We've heard of the difficulties of acting when they were using two sets simultaneously but it must be so difficult to react naturally to someone when you're staring at a point above their head.

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.

On Anderson Cooper [In reply to] Can't Post

Ian and Martin started to discuss this on Anderson Cooper's TV show, though the discussion got a bit derailed as you can see!

Yay [In reply to] Can't Post

I hope TORN's interview is put up soon. Can't wait for that one. I know he did several while he was out here. Crave.online has one up too.

Not much new I have to say, but WB kept the questions to the first movie as these are for the promo of the BR Disc/DvD release but still nice to see something new.

Love that they have a sense of humor.

Thanks for sharing that.
