I don't know who a lot of those people are - I don't really remember names, though... I remember faces.<BR>Tom Cruise as Samwise??? I think I would vomit I am not particularly a fan of his, can ya tell?<BR>I think that Sean Connery would've been a funny Gandalf - but it would've been bad - I couldn't take him seriously. It's sooo hard to picture anyone else playing these parts

*snigger*<P>*shrieks* <P>*giggles*

02-26-2002, 05:13 PM
It sounds funny, from the names that I actually knew. I don't watch a lot of TV...

02-26-2002, 05:19 PM
Didn't recognize a lot of those names either (and here I thought I was pretty good with actors names haha )<P>Wonder if we could work Ryan Stiles (Whose Line Is It Anyways, Drey Carey Show) in there somewhere.

02-26-2002, 05:35 PM
I keep seeing Herve Villechaize as Frodo...<P>Da Ring! Da Ring!<P>(Sorry, I know the guy has passed away)

02-26-2002, 08:14 PM
Yes! Ryan Stiles! Colin Mockery too...no wait I got it! LotR improv!!! Ha ha ! <P>...rate me

02-27-2002, 06:37 AM

Loved it!!

LOL! I particlarly like the idea of Morph as Gollum and William Shatner as Gandalf. For the other Brits here, how about the cast of Eastenders in LotR?<P>Frodo: Martin Fowler<BR>Sam: Mark (very loyal)<BR>Pippin: Asif (always playing jokes)<BR>Merry: Billy Mitchell<P>Gandalf: Dr Legg (he had the eyebrows!)<BR>Aragorn: Steve Owen (handsome and dark)<BR>Boromir: Phil Mitchell<BR>Gimli: Mr Slater the taxi driver - can't remember his first name <BR>Legolas: Ian Beale<P>Faramir: Jamie Mitchell (related to Phil and very sweet)<BR>Eowyn: Sonia Jackson (feisty and outspoken)<BR>Eomer: Robbie Jackson (Sonia's brother)<BR>Theoden: Jim Branning<P>Bilbo: Terry Raymond<BR>Galadriel: Pat Evans<BR>Celeborn: Roy Evans<BR>Elrond: Barry Evans<BR>Arwen: Mel Owen (very glamorous)<P>Sauron: Nasty Nick Cotton<BR>Saruman: Trevor (the wife-beater)<BR>Lord of the Nazgul: Kat Slater<BR>Ringwraiths: Zoe Slater, <BR> Little Mo Slater, <BR> Lynn Slater, <BR> their nan Mo, <BR> Janine Butcher, <BR> Sharon Mitchell, <BR> Pauline Fowler, <BR> Peggy Mitchell.

William Shatner! ROFL!!! *falls out of chair laughing* Mr. Burns... I love it ! I see a fanfic...Ha!

03-01-2002, 04:26 PM
In reply to Tigerlily Gamgee (sorry it's a bit late ) but wasn't Sean Connery offered the part of Gandalf before Ian McKellen? I think he turned it down because he didn't want to work away from his family for so long, although it turned out to be longer than had been predicted any way so perhaps it's just as well.......

03-01-2002, 05:31 PM
<B>A GREAT EYE! LIDLESS! WREATHED IN FLAME!</B> And out of it we hear: "Baggins, eh? <I>Excellent</I><BR> <P>Would that make Mr. Smithers the 'Mouth of Sauron?'<BR>

03-04-2002, 02:06 PM
And now I give you, the cast from he;;<P>Frodo: Li'l Bow Wow (even humanly possible??)<BR>Gandalf: Sean Connery<BR>Legolas: Leonardo DiCaprio<BR>Gimli: An oompa loompa<BR>Arwen: Madonna<BR>Galadriel: Britney Spears<BR>Aragorn: Mel Gibson

03-04-2002, 09:56 PM
Heath Ledger as Aragorn<BR>Nichole Kidman as Galadriel<BR>Juilliana Marglueisas (I cannot spell her name let alone say it...I just call her nurse Hathaway) as Arwen<BR>Rowen Atkinson as Ugluk (Have you seen how mean he can act in Black Adder?? He is positively fiendish!)<BR>Jim Carry as Wormtongue (I just can't stop thinking of how cool he was in The Grinch)<BR>Ewan Mcgregor as Eomer<BR>Leonardo DeCaprio as Gollum...they look remarkably alike.<P><BR>~~Daegwenn

03-09-2002, 05:59 PM
I'll stick to most of Airetauriel's cast. I love the idea of Billy Conolly as Gimli. Though I really believe in Joanna Lumley as Galadriel and Jen Saunders as Arwen.

03-15-2002, 09:57 AM
Tom Cruise as Sam... nice one! Would give Sam a whole new persona "Heyyyy, Mr Frodo..." kinda thing. And Morph! Like that, very clever Airetauriel !

03-15-2002, 02:36 PM
Just three words:<P><B>The Monty Python</B>

08-29-2002, 10:29 AM
Jack Nicholson as Saruman! "Here's.... SARUMAN!!!"<P> Imagine Tom Jones as Elrond, singing at the Rivendell Council ... "Its not unusual to be in love with the One ring!"<p>[ August 29, 2002: Message edited by: Shadowstrife911 ]

08-29-2002, 11:54 AM
Hehe...as a regular watcher of Eastenders *cringe*...the Eastenders one was quite funny! *sniggers at thought of Sonia as Eowyn...and I loved the idea of Billy Conolly as Gimli. Joanna Lumley would be hilarious in any part!

A Monty Python LotR would be hallarious!!<BR>Oh, I think i saw a made up script for that somewhere. I can't remember where it is though. It's set up like the Holy Grail. There's one part in Bree where Bill Ferney is walking around with a cart yelling "Bring out your Baggins!" It's great.<P><BR>I love "Who's Line is it Anyway?" Imagine Ryan Stiles as Gandalf. LOL!

09-03-2002, 09:41 PM
LOVE James Gandolfini as Butterbur! (Yo! Fr%&gn' Nazgul! You think you can come in here and wreck my Inn? I got your fr%&gn' <B>Hobbits</B> right here!<P>But Ryan Styles as Gwaihir (they always make him be an animal of some sort!) and Wayne Brady as Frodo!

09-11-2002, 01:11 AM
For some reason, at work tonight I started thinking that it would be great if Richard Lester had had a chance to make "Lord of the Rings". So in honor of one of my favorite directors, here is the cast of LoTR if Lester had got his hands on it. (Based on the cast of "The Three Musketeers".) <P>Frodo - Michael York<BR>Sam - Michael Gothard (Felton in "TTM")<BR>Oliver Reed - Boromir<BR>Saruman - Christopher Lee<BR>Faramir - Richard Chamberlain <BR>Galadriel - Faye Dunaway<BR>Gandalf - Charleston Heston<BR>Arwen - Geraldine Chaplin<BR>Rose Cotton - Raquel Welsh<BR>Aragorn - Simon Ward<BR>Wormtongue - Spike Milligan<P>Still haven't figured out who Jean-Pierre Cassel (Louis XIII) would play. <P>Some of these actors are kinda "iffy", but some of them would be dead-on LoTR characters.

09-13-2002, 04:26 PM
<BLOCKQUOTE>quote:<HR> Wormtongue - Spike Milligan <HR></BLOCKQUOTE><P>Now that would be something to see. I can imagine the line where his mother asks where he has been all night and Wormtongue replies with his wit...

09-13-2002, 08:36 PM
<BLOCKQUOTE>quote:<HR> CELEBORN - Michael Jackson <HR></BLOCKQUOTE><P>LOL!!!<BR>I could so see him an orc though!!!! (cuz of his face)

09-13-2002, 09:35 PM
I like David Lee Roth as Legolas! What a dork!<P>Johnny Depp as Frodo<BR>Robin Williams is definitely Tom Bombadil!<p>[ September 13, 2002: Message edited by: Liriodendron ]

09-14-2002, 05:06 AM
Billy Connelly as Gimli, Rowin Atkinson as Ugluk <BR>Now thatr would be brilliant.<BR>Does anyone remember the French and Saunders LOTR special? It was great.

09-14-2002, 07:49 AM
<BLOCKQUOTE>quote:<HR>Robin Williams is definitely Tom Bombadil!<HR></BLOCKQUOTE><P>YES! That is just too perfect! I couldn't picture anyone better than Robin Williams playing ole' Bombadil. <P>What about this:<P><B>Frodo - Tobey McGuire</B> (from Spiderman)<P>They remind me of each other a little - Tobey and Elijah.<P><B>Saruman - Jack Black</B> <P>Lol now that would be funny. Couldn't you just picture Jack Black with an incredibly phony looking white beard glued on, dangling from his chin? <P><B>Gandalf - Jay Leno</B><P> I can so picture Jay Leno, talk-show host from the 'Tonight Show', straightening his hair and grinning. He would mutter about how he wanted to get revenge on David Letterman instead of Sauron. Lol.

09-14-2002, 11:54 AM
I could see <P>Matthew Broderic as Frodo<P>John Cusack as maybe Pippin<P>Sting as Elrond <P>Enya as Galadriel and her sister as Arwen (after all Galadriel and Arwen *are* related) and since elves arent supposed to age, I imagine they could end up looking like sisters...<P>Mel Gibson as Aragorn (or even as Boromir since he does do death so nicely) <BR>I honestly cant picture Viggo as kingly. I can picture Mel as being a ranger *and* a King but not viggo.

09-15-2002, 12:01 PM
Johnny Vegas as Frodo? *criiiiinge*!<BR>I can almost imagine Bernard Black playing Aragorn - I thought he sounded a bit Irish when he said, "I swear to you, I will not let the White City fall" (or, "Hi swhear to you, Hi whill nhot leht the White City fahll") OK so I'm not very good at typing accents... you get the picture!
