Noble Cause

Australian thespian John Noble is best known to the U.S. crowd for a pair of pleasingly unhinged performances. In Peter Jackson’s “The Lord of the Rings” saga, he brought wild-eyed tragedy to the role of fallen king Denethor. And in Fox’s sci-fi hit “Fringe,” he embodies the central part of mad scientist Walter Bishop with unabashed vigor. More..

John Howe’s Journal: MAGICAL BORDERS

Or Fantasy, Reality, and the Places They Choose to Meet

You wouldn’t likely recognize the name Laurie Battle, but you’d be familiar with her work. Laurie has managed Tolkien Enterprises through thick and thin, storm and fair weather, for the last three decades, and probably knows more about the ins and outs of Tolkiendom than most.

So, of course when she replied enthusiatically to my slightly timid request concerning the eventual possibility of maybe considering the idea of one day doing a guest newsletter, I was delighted. Laurie has written about magical borders, clearly demonstrating that myth is never wholly a question of geographical boundaries. (more…)

MTV: John Noble won’t Reprise Role in ‘Hobbit’ Films

082708_hobbitIt has been well documented that Guillermo del Toro will approach the original The Lord of the Rings cast to reprise their roles in Middle-earth should the script call for it. News comes today from the MTV Movie Blog that one such actor, John Noble, won’t be available:

“If they said, ‘Would you come and play Denethor again,’” Noble said, “I would have to say, ‘No, I’m doing [new J.J. Abrams television series] ‘Fringe’! And I certainly couldn’t play a younger Denethor or even Ecthelion now that I’m an older John. Not even with makeup.”
