Waiting on "Kong" premiere pics...
Been checking Getty, and they're only just starting to come out - Jackson, Serkis, Watts. No Boyd or Wood yet!

But it got me checking the cast. Did you know Sandro Kopp is in it, as a "New Yorker"? *G* He's a German actor who was one of the extras, I believe, and does a lot of the Cons (very personable, I believe). And Andy's both King Kong and (I'd heard this before, but forgotten) "Lumpy the Cook" - *L*!

*crossing my fingers and hoping for Billy and Elijah pics!*

*checks the cast list again*

*L*! Jarl Benzon is in it! And why does "Brophy" sound so familiar? [ETA: Arevanye pointed out that he was Sharku... and it looks like he was in "Heavenly Creatures" and "BrainDead" as well, so he goes waaaaay back!] [Bless PJ - Bob Burns is: "World-renowned archivist and historian of props, costumes, and other screen used paraphenalia from some of the greatest (and not so great) science fiction, fantasy, and horror motion pictures. Among some of the things found in his "basement" museum are: the original Time Machine from the George Pal classic of the same name, the original wolf's head cane from 1941's The Wolfman, the original King Kong armature, and a functioning full size head of the Alien Queen from James Cameron's Aliens." And... did you notice what PJ's carrying in his pic from Getty (which I'm going to try to remember to post)? It looks like the armature for a small Tyrannosaurus Rex Kong... possibly from the original "King Kong"?)

Brophy was in LOTR-- he was the orc on the warg that head-butted Viggo, and he also played the orc that tries to steal off with the Hobbits near Fangorn, I believe. The LOTR Fan Magazine I have says he also played one of the black riders in FOTR.

That's right - thank you! And I'm assuming Geraldine Brophy is a relative or spouse. *G*

There's a couple of Burns... wonder if they were in LOTR...

Don't forget - two Brophy's. We had one as Arwen and Aragorn's son as well!
