My fantasy Lord of the Rings cast

It just struck me that Alan Rickman would have played Denethor much better than whoever it was in the Peter Jackson movie. That idea has opened the floodgates…

So without further ado

    you should specify when, in an actor’s career, you want to be in the fantasy LOTR. Although I see you’ve already done this for Clint Eastwood…

    I dunno, I liked Viggo Mortensen as Aragorn, but I’m amused by Tim Curry as Elrond – if you’d asked me for a more camp performance than Hugo Weaving (“all men are bastards!” muddling up Priscilla, Matrix and LOTR…) I would have been hard-pressed, but Tim Curry, maybe :)

    Well all I can say is that I’d watch your version – Brian Blessed, Richard O’Brian, Rutger Hauer and Johnny Depp, all in the same movie? Hell yeah!

    Great idea for a post and I agree with Clint Eastwood as Aragorn, with one exception. I think c. 1972 (Dirty Harry). Reason: “So, how many daggers did I use? Was it 5 or 6…?…. etc.
