Hawke is Out, Wenham is In
Matthew Bass

The folks at Tol Galen recently got more confirmation that David Wenham has replaced Ethan Hawke as Faramir:

I got an email from Martyn from across the ditch in Australia last night about who has replaced Ethan as Faramir.

"I`ve had it on good authority that Ethan Hawke is no longer playing Faramir and he has been replaced by the Australian actor David Wenham: famous from the oz movie The Boys."

The President of New Line, Michael Deluca, recently confirmed that this was so by e-mail. Pics and a bio for Wenham will be posted shortly.
