Boyd Is Pippinlike

Ringer Spy Eowyn Turmavende writes:

In the back of the Boston Sunday Globe’s TV week, they have a column where people can send in questions, and this question and answer appeared today (April 6):

“Q: I have become a big fan of Billy Boyd from the Lord of the Rings movies. What is he currently working on? [from Christine via e-mail]

A: In addition J. R. R. Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings: the Return of the King, next Christmas, the 34-year Scottish actor co-stars next with Russell Crowe and Paul Bettany in Peter Weir’s Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World.

By the way, asked recently whether he really is anything like accident-prone LOTR character “Pippin” Took, Boyd told an interviewer that the first time he tried to read the Tolkien trilogy, he dropped the book in a hotel swimming pool. ‘If that’s not a Pippin thing to do, I don’t know what is,’ he laughed.”
