TORn Tuesday hosts Sean Astin this week!

February 6, 2012 at 3:02 am by Demosthenes  - is delighted to announce that on this coming Tuesday, February 7, none other than Sean Astin will be joining our own Cliff “Quickbeam” Broadway on TORn Tuesday this week for a one-hour Q&A session!

Astin — actor, director, voice artist and producer — is, of course, best known to Tolkien fans as Sam Gamgee in Peter Jackson’s adaptation of The Lord of the Rings, but has also made his mark in a career spanning more than 70 films roles, including The Goonies, Toy Soldiers, 50 First Dates and as the indomitable, never-say-die working class hero of Rudy.

He’s played a recurring guest role in the TV series 24 and has written and directed two short films — the academy award nominated Kangaroo Court and The Long And the Short Of It.

And at this week’s TORn Tuesday, he’ll be talking about his latest projects — including his special endurance/fitness project Run3rd to promote the sport of running as he gears up to run his third LA Marathon. (If you’re already curious, hit up his official Twitter account!)

Plus, he’ll be answering your questions! If you’re wondering how it all works, and how to submit a question for Sean, please read on below!


TORN Tuesday happens on Tuesdays at 5pm PST (Los Angeles time). If you’re wondering how this translates to your time zone, follow the link directly below to see our handy conversion table!

[Find out when the Q&A is in your time zone!]

We recommend connecting on the day via to our streaming video channel.

There you’ll be able to watch and listen to Cliff and Sean as they chat. Although you won’t be able to directly talk to Sean, you can still text chat with fellow fans and submit your questions for Sean through either Stickam’s webcam-plus-text chatroom or in TORn’s ever-popular IRC chatroom (affectionately known as Barliman’s).


The rules are simple. Be nice to people and don’t swear — we try to operate a family friendly chat where people of all ages can come and relax and chat. People breaking these very simple guidelines can expect to be evicted from the chat.


You can submit a question for Sean in advance through the’s message boards. Just leave your question in the thread we’ve linked to below ( if you’re not registered, it only takes a minute!).

You should also be able to ask Sean a question on the day via our chatroom moderators (we’ll try our best to pass them onto Cliff). But because we expect that Sean will get many, many questions, and Cliff may not be able to ask them all, we recommend getting in early through the thread below.
