<BR> Re: Re:better/disater cast</b><br><br> Klaus. Good call. Also, I think someone mentioned him in another thread, but the name bears repeating -- how did Max Von Sydow not end up in this film?! <br> <br> John Malkovich as Wormtongue and Christopher Walken as the Mouth. Sam Elliott as Halbarad. <p></p>

<BR> worst cast</b><br><br> Well, after some long thinking I came up with my worst list:<br> <br> Frodo: That guy who plays mini-me<br> Sam: Jonathan Lipniki (kid from Jerry McGuire)<br> Merry and Pippen: Mary Kate and Ashley (shudder)<br> Bilbo: Gary Coleman (whatchoo talkin' bout Frodo?)<br> Aragorn: The Rock<br> Gandalf: William Shatner (you must....destroy..the ring)<br> Legolas: Leonardo DiCapprio<br> Boromir: Lucy Lawless<br> Gimli: all I can say is, Disney dwarf &quot;Grumpy&quot;<br> Arwen: Joan Jet (or Sandra Bullock)<br> Galadriel: Kathie Lee Gifford<br> Elrond: Regis Philbin (in keeping with the theme)<br> Other Hobbits: cast of Rugrats<br> Saruman: a member of ZZ top <p></p>

<BR><br><br> A comedy. Of the Space Balls sort. Or maybe Monty Python:Quest for the Holy Grail. The latter suits LotR better since it isn't futuristic but in the past. <p>Thus even as Eru spoke to us shall beauty not before conceived be brought into Eä, and evil be good to have been.</p>

<BR><br><br> lol. No, he's the same actor, but I was thinking of the late 60's/early 70's era Caine, a leaner, meaner customer. See <i> Zulu</i>, <i> The Ipcress File</i>, or <i> The Man Who Would Be King</i> (one of my all-time favorites!). But the hair is right, isn't it? Didn't that ent-draught grow a nice big bushy coiffure, too? <p></p>

<BR><br><br> The 80's -- the decade of Big Hair! What better decade to draw tonsorial inspiration from? <br> <br> Besides, it's not <i> that</i> bad. I mean it ain't Jon Bon Jovi. Imagine Merry with <i> this</i> hairdo: <br> <p></p>

<BR><br><br> Excuse me while I run away in horror... <br> <br> I have to agree there. Compared to Bon Jovi, Michael Caine looks very un-80s.

<BR><br><br> Brilliant! Roseanne Barr as Shelob is especially inspired casting. I take it this is the TV sitcom version of LotR, perhaps retitled <i> Four Hobbits, A Wizard, and a Magic Ring</i>, or perhaps <i> Gandalf in Charge</i>. <p></p>

<BR><br><br> I like the way you think. This is casting outside the box! Who would have ever thought of the 6'4&quot; Jimmy Stewart to play a Hobbit?! &lt;Jimmy Stewart voice&gt; &quot;Wha-wha-what's that you say? To Mordor?! I'm not going to Mordor!&quot;.... &quot;Merry Christmas Lothlorien! Merry Christmas, Rivendell! Merry Christmas you old Bag End!&quot;<br> <br> The Crock Hunter as the Barrow-wight! &quot;Crikey! This Hobbit's a beauty! Look at the distinctive fur on his feet. Whoa! You're cranky, aren't ya? You're okay!&quot;<br> <br> Jamie Farr as Nob, that's a fit, but Edward G. Robinson is truly unique casting. &quot;I'm not coming back from this ride alive, see?&quot;<br> <br> You've outdone yourself. <p></p>
