Ring Better cast/Disaster cast

<BR>Okay I was afraid to do this while the movies were still filming (not sure why just a foreboding) but now that their done here go's. <br> 1. If you could go back and be the caster who would you have chosen for. . .?<br> (1)The nine walkers<br> (2)Galadriel<br> (3)Bilbo<br> (4)Eowyn<br> (5)Arwen<br> And anyone else you would like.<br> 2. Chose the worst posible actors/actreses you can think of to play the above. Me and some of my Tolkienly inclined friends did this and it was great! So try it out express your feelings with 1. and have fun with 2. <br> <br> <p></p>

<BR><br><br> This really weird 70's theme hit me when I saw this question. And I just had to share it.<br> <br> 1) The nine walkers: The cast of the Brady Bunch (including Alice). Gollum would be that kid that played cousin Oliver.<br> 2)Galadriel: Chrissy from Three's Company (a FotR chapter title, sort of)<br> 3)Bilbo: Don Knotts<br> 4)Eowyn: Janet from Three's Company (There it is again!)<br> 5)Arwen: Cheryl Ladd (A Charlie's Angel)<br> <br> I don't have a BEST list yet. <p>The Barrow-Wight (RKittle)<br> I usually haunt <a href="http://www.barrowdowns.com">The Barrow-Downs</a> and The Barrow-Downs <a href="http://www.barrowdowns.com/cgi-bin/ultimatebb.cgi">Middle-Earth Discussion Board</a>.</p><i>Edited by: <A HREF=http://www.barrowdowns.com/cgi-bin/ultimatebb.cgi?ubb=get_profile&u=00000002>RKittle</A>&nbsp; at: 1/4/01 6:09:23 am<br></i>

<BR> New Zealand Bands</b><br><br> I know of a NZ band called the Lads. Their album is called Lost @ Sea, and some of the songs would be good, though I'm not sure where in the story they'd fit. A couple of their songs have been played on Dawson's Creek, though I'm not sure that recommends them to anyone here... <p><i>The days are fated to be filled with marvels.</i></p>

<BR> Re: Bonnie Tyler</b><br><br> Bonnie Tyler! Another great suggestion! Wow! We are a smart bunch. She also did &quot;Total Eclipse of the Heart&quot;, right? Dunno why, but Bonnie brings Eowyn to mind. Perhaps she should have played Eowyn and sang the funeral dirge of Theoden.<br> <br> I just had a totally unrelated thought. Do you realize that when the movies are released, sitcoms will do small parodies of them to get a laugh (dream sequences and such). Further, cartoons will jump on the bandwagon. Which brings me to the epiphany that jumpstarted this paragraph - The Chipmunks! <br> <br> These are the people that should have played the hobbits. And Dave would be Gandalf. &quot;Pippin!&quot;..... &quot;Pippin&quot;.... Piiiiiiipppppeeennnn!&quot; And just imagine them performing the songs sung by the hobbits. <br> <p>The Barrow-Wight (RKittle)<br> I usually haunt <a href="http://www.barrowdowns.com">The Barrow-Downs</a> and The Barrow-Downs <a href="http://www.barrowdowns.com/cgi-bin/ultimatebb.cgi">Middle-Earth Discussion Board</a>.</p>

<BR> Re: Re:better/disater cast</b><br><br> It is my wightish (no offense, sam) opinion that Liz's chief talent lies in here ability to open her eyes in a sultry way. Otherwise, I haven't witnessed anything to set her apart from other actors. <p>The Barrow-Wight (RKittle)<br> I usually haunt <a href="http://www.barrowdowns.com">The Barrow-Downs</a> and The Barrow-Downs <a href="http://www.barrowdowns.com/cgi-bin/ultimatebb.cgi">Middle-Earth Discussion Board</a>.</p>

<BR> Re: Re:better/disater cast</b><br><br> Well, if Arwen wouldn't have had an expanded role in the first place, I can still tell there are people out there that would not want her in the movies. Personally, I don't care who the heck it is, as long as they are close to the description Tolkien gives, and they have some acting experience. <p>"It seems fate is not without a sense of irony."</p>
