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*)
