Twele Totally Mad, Totally Invented Rumors

Have I posted this before? Even if I did, it’s worth re-sharing. My favorite bit?

First film drama! Jackson has decided that Balin will fall off a cliff in the Misty Mountains, seemingly to his death. He will then reappear in the second film. “I like to have at least one character fall off a cliff in each film,” Jackson told our source. “It doesn’t mean they can’t come back,” he quickly added, noting that Gandalf, Aragorn, and Gollum returned after suffering the same fate. Philippa Boyens observed that: “Sometimes I think Peter’s greatest influences as a child were Ray Harryhausen, Zulu, and Wile E. Coyote.”

My favourite is this one:

'Even more Cumberbatch. Due to the phenomenal popularity of Benedict Cumberbatch, Peter Jackson has decided not to confine him to motion-capture but to show him onscreen. He will play Elrond’s twin sons, Elrohir and Elladan, in Rivendell scenes and at the Battle of Five Armies. Weta Digital is updating the head-replacement technique used to allow Armie Hammer to play twins in The Social Network. When a reporter pointed out the twins do not figure in Tolkien’s The Hobbit, Jackson replied, “Well, they’re in The Lord of the Rings and we left them out of that, so it’s a fair swap.”

What's more, my Elrohir is thrilled at being named first for once!

I think it's a terrible waste to have Benedict Cumberbatch in two roles (as he is, for real) and not have one of them fall off a cliff. Since he's so good at it.

(OK, Smaug falls. But not off a cliff. PJ should fix that.)

The last bit of this with Wile E Coyote had me totally LOL at my desk in the back. Yeah - those cliffs... Too freakin' funny!
