Wood, Serkis & Boyd Radio Interview Transcript
Compiled by Hobbitangel
Okay, there are mini-interviews with Andy Serkis and Billy Boyd beforehand but as it was during classes for me, I missed Andys talk and only caught the very tail end of Billys. He was saying something about how Elijah was walking around the studio with beer in one hand and something in the other ..whatever it was, I unfortunately didnt catch it all. However, I didnt miss Elijahs interview, but it just so happens that I dont carry tape-recorders in my pockets, so here it is in pointish form;
Elijah loves being on the radio.
How does he feel knowing that (through Frodo), hes been made a part of history? He claims that its not history .. yet! Naturally, its been an amazing experience
Typical of these kinds of rocker radio stations, next they star talking about Paris Hilton movies. (translation=porn) Elijah says he doesnt own one but he does have a clip of one on his computer. Apparently everyone involved in this radio broadcast thinks that theyre hilarious. Then they start talking about her interest in the camera and a scene where she picks up a phone without knowing that the camera is watching her something like that!
So does he consider himself lucky? (All the old stuff here.) I consider myself to be incredibly fortunate and that I could meet amazing people that have become very good friends. Having life experiences, spending 16 months in New Zealand, living there, and then going back every year was amazing! (along those lines)
Does Viggo stink? Elijah defends him by saying no, but that he is kind of like a hippie.
And the rumours that he never bathes? Ridiculous of course, but he doesnt wash his hair as much as most people.
They talk momentarily about his role in Back to the Future 2.
Then they mention upcoming roles such as Hooligans in London and Happy Feet.
He says that the recording for Happy Feet is done and right now theyre working on the animation. We can expect it sometime in 2005. (I know you know)
Next, the Osbornes. Does he regret being on their show? No! Than he talks about how the whole family is amazing and how Ozzys a great loving guy and how he was really nervous to meet him because hes a huge Sabbath fan.
Does he know Michael Jackson? No . And will he ever get facial plastic surgery like him? God, no!
Does he think hell ever get Punkd? Probably not because I dont know Ashton, and I dont really have anything to do with his crowd. He says hes thankful he doesnt know him, and while the radio hosts laugh, he explains; only so he wont get Punkd!
Now that were on topic about Ashton, what about Dude wheres my car? They dont really give it the best review though Elijah didnt even see it. Kind of a contradiction to what he said last night (At MOD) about what he thinks of it though. They talk about the future sequel; Seriously dude, wheres my car? for a bit as well.
Next topic; movies. Has he ever seen the Original Slap Shot 3? And ..he hasnt! So then the radio people start jeering at him and telling him to get of Canada (What are they DOING?) But when they asked him if he had seen Scarface and the Godfather Trilogy and he replied Yes sir!, they relented and said, Youre alright man!
Is he a hockey fan? Yes he is, but he doesnt really get to follow sports that much.
After Elijah profusely thanks the radio crew, says, Have a great morning! then leaves, they call him the nicest hobbit ever because apparently no one ever thanks them for being on their show!Posted in Old Special Reports on November 23, 2003 by xoanon
