Spikey Wheel Question Answered!!!
Ringer Spy John Doe drops in again to spread some wisdom on that all important question, ‘Who was that on the Spiked Wheel?’ Well now we know!
Armed with a small clipping from a LOTR Call Sheet from August 17th, John let me take a peek at one of the shots they were planning for the day. One of them is described as:
‘As Saruman turns on the wheel, the Palantir drops from his hand and into the water’
So now we know! That image is obviously a stunt double, they would not stick a 78 year old man upside down on a wheel for hours. Click on the image below to see the actual call sheet.
