The talent scouts for the film trilogy Lord of the Rings were pleased with the turn-out at the weekend's auditions held in Timaru.

A spokesperson for Three Foot Six Ltd, said 180 men answered the call for males of medium build over 175cm tall, and they were very happy with the range of looks.

The spokesperson was not expecting there would be any more auditions for extras held in the area and company staff were heading back to Wellington today to sort through all their casting files

The message for film hopefuls was simply to wait for a call.
