LOTR cast news

(I still love them so much, and I still don't know why.)

Orlando got married to his girlfriend of several years, Miranda Kerr. They've been all cuddly and cute in public lately, and pretty much eloped to the Caribbean in July to get married without fuss. Now there are rumors of impending parenthood. And there's wank, in the usual places.

Sean Bean is getting divorced, for the forth time. However lovely or annoying he might be, he's clearly un-domestic and goes off filming around the world (Ukraine, South Africa, Ireland in the last few months). Or he's pining for Viggo, anything's possible ;-)

Elijah burbles happily about music - in this case, mostly random vinyl he hasn't actually listened to.

Billy is playing the lead in Sunshine on Leith, a musical set to Proclaimers songs, how I wish I could go see it! It was Billy at TORn and berreh who introduced me to The Proclaimers, and I really like them, it would be bliss to see it, sigh.

Here's Billy's first video-blog-thing, just him on camera, looking good and being charming. But... he does this horrible scrunching up his forehead thing, sort-of like a TNG Klingon, from 2 min 35 seconds onwards. I'm not usually critical about looks, I'm fine with them getting older, but this is awful, please, make it go away Billy!

You left out Dom. He just did a video with Eminem and Rhianon (?). Controversial. I haven't decided how I feel about it.

And I love the thought that Sean Bean is pining for Viggo.

Dom gets his own entry, it is complex and I want to talk about it!

I read an interview with him about doing it. He was all about how it did not romanticize domestic violence. I'm not convinced. And there is so much more going on.

I'm really excited about the prospect of Billy doing dance numbers of any kind. :D Also, bless him for dealing with such unforgiving lighting. I would've failed in that room.

Also, I'm looking forward to seeing what you have to say about the Eminem video. I love Eminem (and Dom, clearly), but as you said on one of the comms, I also don't think they *quite* got the message across that they were trying to send.

There better be lots of fangirl videos of that show!

oh-oh, now I feel pressure to be insightful about that video... but I want a conversation because I'm worlds away from the message target market.

Ahaha, man, I didn't even know Orlando had a girlfriend. Does this mean we get fluffy fellowship-reunion-at-the-wedding fic?

My priorities, they are obvious.

They are really cute together (Orlando and Miranda), but it really was a secret wedding. Which is kinda cool because they could have done one of those crazy celebrity ones, but took it private instead.

So unless you write it, probably no reunion!fic :-(

well, there is that! And none of them are Behaving Badly in Public, except Bean a tiny bit. I am such a fan of the LotR casting director!

It's really sad about Sean; I was rooting for him this time. :/ Some people just don't seem cut out for marriage. It's a bummer, 'cause he seems to have the romantic charm to draw a partner in, and he certainly has the desire to be married. I agree that his being away all the time is probably at least part of the problem. Maybe if he found someone who could travel with him...? [sigh]

I've been trying to imagine what Orlando and Miranda's kids will look like, whether she's pregnant now or not -- even in my imagination, the glare of all that compounded pretty is pretty darned blinding. :D

That is a whole lot of pretty. And the semi-elopement indicates that they are not fame-whores, always reassuring.

Oh, thank you for the updates! I'm going to try and see Billy's musical.

And, well, I do love Sean but he clearly isn't husband material...
