Joram e-mailed me with this info:
I just got word that Ted Sandyman has been cast. His name is Brian Sergent, an
actor from NZ who's been in 2 other Peter Jackson films as well.
I just spoke with the president of Jeffrey Comb's fan club. She asked him about
LOTR. He said he auditioned for Wormtongue but did not get the part.
Just thought I'd pass on that at the Toronto Film Festival Ethan Hawke said he was
playing Faramir, so now we must wonder if Uma Thurman is in.
Well this was a rather unsuspecting surprize. After placing a call with Elijah
Wood's agent concerning media matters, I heard some rather cool news!
"He's down under right now, working on LOTR."
"Right this very second?" I asked
"Yes, he'll be there for the next 18 months."
Well we all knew filming is set to start next month, but to actually hear news that
the cast and crew are gathering in NZ sends shivers down my spine!
As far as we can tell, Billy Boyd is in NZ right now, along with John Rhys-Davies,
and now Elijah Wood.
