The Rumour that Refused to Die.

October 31, 1999 at 3:27 pm by Tehanu  - 

Yep, Sean’s back. I swear he’ll be the Elvis of the next millenium: people will claim to see him everywhere even after he’s dead. Here’s the latest Connery-involved-with-LOTR rumour, and it’s a really cool one:

“…But here’s something else for you to mull over. I just got hold of it today. I got it from a UK TV Guide called “TV Quick”. One section is called ‘The Goss'(as in gossip) and has an interesting titbit about Sean Connery. Here it is word for word…

“Sean Connery could be joining an impressive cast in the new movie version of ‘The Lord of the Rings’.

Alongside Cate Blanchett, Sir Ian McKellen and Sean Bean, Connery could end up playing Witch King, the leader of a band of undead henchmen. It would be his most villainous role yet – but then, he’s always had a licence to thrill.”

That tid-bit came from STEVE H, many thanks.
