*G* A Quiz I Think You'll Enjoy!
Sure, you've heard about Charlie Ross by now - the actor who puts on a One Man Lord of the Rings Show - but, come on - he can't be THAT good. I mean, he uses no costumes so he has to get the characters across with just his expressions, body language and voice. Impossible, right? *G* Or maybe not.

Tell me - can you guess the following characters and scenes, just from a snapshot frozen in time? Go ahead - try it! I bet you can. *G* The answers will be down at the bottom; let me know how many you were able to recognize. *S* I'll be putting them in order of when they appear in the movies.

The full photo album is here: http://share.shutterfly.com/osi.jsp?i=EegN2LRi5atWnM¬ag=1








F. (FOTR - a scene at Rivendell...)


H. (TTT)



A. Gandalf! Typical joke:

Gandalf: I've sent Frodo to his death... *sigh*

Aragorn: And SAM

Gandalf: *look of guilty embarassment* *cough* Oh yes... and Sam

[running joke throughout - and didn't we ALL add "and SAM!" when watching the movies? *G*]

B. Elrond - *G* Typical joke:

Elrond: And you shall be... The Title of The Movie! [*ggl*]

C. Gollum - "quiet, hobbitses!" Hard to photograph - always moving!

D. Saruman and the Palantir, of course

E. Denethor - what a wreck he made him! *L*! And I didn't catch it, but he made Denethor eat and slobber those blasted cherry tomatoes in EVERY SCENE! *L*!

F. Bilbo - "I'd... I'd dearly like to see my ring again..." *CHANGES INTO MONSTER!*

G. Boromir and Aragorn - "My... king!" "*MWAH*" (*G*)

H. Frodo with Sting at Sam's throat

I. Frodo with The Ring at the Crack of Doom

J. Sam and Frodo, comforting each other at the end... *G*

Frodo: I'm glad to be with you Samwise Gamgee, here at the end of all things. *smile*

Sam: Mr. Frodo, are we gay? *completely confused*

Frodo: ...

Sam: ...

Frodo: I'm glad to be with you Samwise Gamgee, here at the end of all things. *smile*

*G* How did you do? Could you recognize any of them?

Yeah, I got about half. But remember I've not seen the movies hardly at all in recent memory, except the viewing and a half at your house.

*G* So do I!

But - hey - you CAN see a tiny bit of this! Yahoo for Charlie Ross; it will take you to onemanstarwars (I think). Click on the LOTR choice... scroll down the page and look at the rings on the right. One is a little video clip! *G*

The only one I got right was Frodo with Sting. Well, partially, because I thought he had Sting at Gollum's throat, not Sam's. And I thought the kiss one was Gollum making kissy faces at Sam during the po-tay-to sequence. *L*

Also, that Elrond is PERFECT. *rofl* Work those 'brows, Charlie.

*goes through your album*
Tell me he isn't singing Y.M.C.A. in #18

I don't know what photos you're referring to, but no - I think I'd remember if he were doing YMCA! *L*!

Darn - I did think people would get Gandalf and Elrond - but it IS hard without the voices. At least I hope you have an "oh, YEAH" feeling when you see who they are! *G*

*admires anybody who can do that with their eyebrows!*

Oh, no I did have that "Oh Yeaaaaah" feeling, usually followed by a fannish giggle. ;) So you're safe there.
