Fans of Thorin's Hair Must Read

Fans of Thorin's Hair Must Read Can't Post

Richardarmitage.net reports a quote from Graham MacTavish at Hobbitcon that most likely was in answer to a question re the naughty dwarf calendar the actors created for PJ's birthday. GT said RA's pose was straddling a chair backwards wearing just his fat suit (like all the actors), holding Orcrist upright on the floor in front of him -- and his head tilted back while Dwalin's hand held a blow dryer to his famous long tendrils.

Priceless. And I think I have a stitch in my side.

Have to wonder who came up with the fabularious idea for this calendar. It's too bad we'll never get to see it Laugh!

I think it was [In reply to] Can't Post

Mark Hadlow (Dori) who came up with the idea for the calendar. And you don't have to imagine things either, Angharad. Others are imagining it for you all over the net:

Descriptions of some of the other dwarves are also filtering through and sound equally hilarious. I like the sound of Ori as a car wash man. He is May and is wearing his fat suit, roller skates, a sweatband on his head and leg warmers. He is washing PJ's car, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.

Although with that pose in mind I think the last thing I think about is the hair.........!Evil

The idea came from Graham McTavish [In reply to] Can't Post

he coordinated the entire thing, props, shooting moments etc.

From what I heard at HobbitCon:
Dori/Mark Hadlow is doing a Marilyn Monroe pose.
Ori/Adam Brown is car washing on roller skates.
Bifur/William Kircher is in a padded cell doing something very scary with his face.
Dwalin/Graham is the tough guy who is holding the baby (and the baby is Ori).
And.... argh there goes my mind. Can't remember any of the others. It was a returning question at HobbitCon.

The calendar is hanging in PJ's bathroom, and Graham holds on to the originals (or this is what he said). According to him the images where just to shocking to see and grained in everybodies mind for ever. Although we all begged for a copy....

And at a previous convention(beginning of March in NZ I think) Dean O'Gorman said Kili and Fili's picture on the calender(sounds like they shared one, makes sense) is of Aidan dipping Dean, tango style, while Dean held a red rose between his teeth. :)

That just may [In reply to] Can't Post

be the funniest thing I've seen come out of this movie. Can't...stop...giggling!

Graham McTavish is fabulous. I wonder how hard PJ laughed when they gave it to him? And how hard it was for them to keep straight faces while they were posing?

Do you know how much money they'd make if they ever put one of these calendars up for auction? (And then surely one of the actors would outbid the highest bid, just to make sure the calendar NEVER got into the hands of one of us!)

This calendar was a personal gift, intended to remain private and I believe it will. [In reply to] Can't Post

But as descriptions of each dwarf's pose start to emerge, I've no doubt more than one talented fan artist will be inspired to recreate the calendar. Perhaps with some extra oomph added. Wink (See link above.) I suspect Mr. MacTavish and the other actors enjoy teasing us fangirls with something we're never ever going to get a real peek at.

I want to see that. Not because it's supposedly 'sexy', but because it sounds so funny and I'd probably laugh at it. I've been needing a really good laugh lately.

I hope it makes it to the EEs. I love the calendar. PJ must know fans would love it or be embarrassed as hell.
I wonder what Bombur's pose is...most probably involves a soup ladle...

I really can't decide [In reply to] Can't Post

whether to die swooning or laughing! Tough choice, really. Love love love these. Thank you, ShireHorse!


Have to say, my mom wandered over to see what I was up to while these two pics were loading (slow dial-up connection). I suddenly felt like a guilty teenager again (those years are LONG past!) and shut them down quick! Not sure I need her asking questions.

"Oh, hi, Mom. What is that, you ask? It's just Thorin straddling a chair butt-naked, while Dwalin blow-dries his hair, and look -- there's his cool sword Orcrist there too! And look in this one, don't you love how his butt kind of sparkles? Where on earth did these come from, you ask? Well, see, there's this calendar that Graham McTavish put together for PJ's 50th birthday where all the actors posed in their fatsuits...what?!? An int... -- NO! YOU DO NOT NEED TO SCHEDULE AN INTERVENTION! LET ME OGLE MY DWARVES IN PEACE!"

Or something like that. Wink
