Two Related Stories about our boys and "After the Rings"
First, just saw this on Yahoo: http://buzz.yahoo.com/buzz_log/entry/2005/10/07/0300/ A more tongue-in-cheek look at some LOTR veterans and what they're up to.

More of the same, but more serious over here (recently posted on TORn): http://news.yahoo.com/s/nm/20051007/en_nm/rings_dc;_ylt=AqiHQEqY7O0SkKXEe5oxRVKs0NUE;_ylu=X3oDMTA3YXYwNDRrBHNlYwM3NjI

Gee... no mention of Billy? Not surprising. But, hey, no mention of Sean Astin? Well, probably because he doesn't have a big movie coming out, and what sparked these articles is the rare conjunction of movies by LOTR actors: "History of Violence", "Elizabethtown", and "Everything is Illuminated" (and "GSH"), plus the high profile TV show "Lost".

(p.s. Care to play "spot the mistakes" in the articles? *G*)

hahaha Elijah is Shirley Temple? awesome.

What is odd about searching for Viggo Mortensen poetry? Dude, I've done that...

And umm did I read that correctly that elwood's agent said he loved the books and therefore did whatever he could to get in the movie? He didn't even read the books forever, did he? Has he even read them through now?

I'm going to go search for weird stuff, there's gotta be some odder searches than Dom's bicep.

*awards you a point*

Yep, that's one of the errors! Although, I do believe that he didn't take the part because it would be a blockbuster, either. I believe he sought the part because... it was a good part! *G* And that's consistent with how he's made his other choices.

Dom/bicep - *L*! At first I thought "are people searching for the comment that Dom made about how Billy has big biceps for such a small man?", but when I clicked on the search, some things about his tattoos came up. Perhaps that's why?

Love your icon. Was that an actual "Lone Gunman" headline or was it photoshopped in? *L*!

*LOL*!!!! Points for you - and I'm kicking myself because I missed that - *L*!

And is he REALLY the only one in it? I wonder if some of the others ever got their cameos. *G*
