CastWatch: More Liv at CNN.com

Liv Tyler (Arwen) talks a little bit more about her role in LOTR in this story from CNN. Among the highlights:

That is nice (having the films done all at once), but there’s a part of me that’s kind of anxious to get into another role, because ‘Lord of the Rings’ was so spread out for me. I didn’t get that sense of working every day consistently for a period of time. And at the same time, I’m not the main character in those movies.” [More]

Thanks to sk0766 for the heads up.

The first image looks to be just some random hobbits hanging out, possibly at Bilbo’s birthday party.

Our guess is that the second image is of Farmer Maggot.

For Canadian Fans: the LOTR trailer again.

In my city (Victoria, British Columbia),Famous Players theatres is showing the LOTR trailer AGAIN before “Memento”. .. The audience was mostly older folks (25-55) and they seemed to be right “up” on the LOTR groundswell of popularity.”

Thanks to Sheila for that.
