Tehanu here,

Last night NZ’s TV1 news reported that Elijah Wood was signed up to play Frodo, as we know. And then they finished up saying “It is still not known whether Hollywood great Al Pacino will play Gandalf.”

This, my friends, has to be a complete leg-pull. A wind-up. I’m still laughing. If this is true,I’ll eat my head!
I mean, PJ once did a spoof documentary that fooled most of us into believing that they’d discovered some NZ farmer last century who invented sound and colour film.

Al Pacino? Get along with you!

By the way, there’s some great new fan art up today.
