Woodthorpe, Gollum Voice?

I’m back! Bet you didn’t know I was away did you? anyways, got this little tidbit from Barry!:

I heard on the rumour mill that the voice of Gollum will be played by Peter Woodthorpe (the “unknown brit” Mr Deluca mentioned?). He also played the voice of Gollum in the BBC’s radio adaptation of LOTR (the one with Ian Holm as Frodo), and was superb in that role – so look to be impressed by his performance!

I have indeed heard this adaptation and love this idea!

Nicholas Lea Rumor – False

Xoanon here,

You may have heard rumors that Nicholas Lea will be in LOTR? Well it’s complete shash, Lea will in fact be in ‘The Veritcal Limit’ another NZ based film. Lea will play Tom, Vertical Limit is rumored to be a rock climbing adventure, a la ‘Cliffhanger’.

The Verticle Limit plot (thanks to
Premise: When a group of mountain climbers on K2, the second tallest mountain in the world, become trapped in a “vertical cave” (essentially a pit on the side of the mountain), the brother (O’Donnell) of one of the climbers (Tunney) comes out of retirement to lead the effort to save them.

There, can we get back to LOTR now?

Steve Buscemi UNTRUE

Xoanon here,

The rumor about Steve Buscemi being the voice/model for Gollum is, as I said, completely untrue. A letter from Mr. Deluca confirmed it.

‘Nope, he’s some unknown Brit’

Don’t want to say I told you so….

Xoanon here,

Harry over at AICN is reporting that Sean Bean (Sharpe, 006) is in considerations for the role of Boromir. This is quite a cool revelation, due to the fact that I wanted him as Aragorn!
