Suffice it to say that the marketing folks for ‘One Night at Mcools’ have done a great job shopping Liv Tyler (Arwen) around to every reporter in the known galaxy, here are a few more articles about lovely Liv, she does mention LOTR quite a bit:
MR. S:OK, tell me about your role in The Lord of the Rings.
LT: It’s been expanded from the books. There’s a big appendix at the end with a large chapter about Arwen. Basically, there wasn’t enough female presence in a lot of the film, so they took the appendix and used that story and placed it throughout. We shot all three movies at once. It took a year and a half, back and forth to New Zealand.

TYLER PLAYS A FEMME FATALE IN ‘ONE NIGHT AT MCCOOL’S’
With everything she already has in the can, Liv Tyler could sit back and coast yet still have a high profile in movie theaters over the next three years.
First up, Tyler essentially plays three different roles as a femme fatale in the black comedy “One Night At McCool’s.” Then, for the next three Christmas holidays, she’s playing the same role in three different movies–the trilogy of J.R.R. Tolkien’s “Lord of the Rings,” shot simultaneously from late 1999 through last December in New Zealand. Tyler, who plays the elf Arwen, co-stars with Elijah Wood, Ian McKellen, Cate Blanchett and Ian Holm.
Except for re-recording dialog, Tyler and the rest of the cast have their work done on three film releases through 2003.
“That is an incredible idea, for sure,” Tyler said. “I keep thinking, well, I don’t have to worry. I’ve got three years of movies done already.
“That is nice, but there’s a part of me that’s kind of anxious to get into another role, because ‘Lord of the Rings’ was so spread out for me. I didn’t get the sense of working every day consistently for a period of time. And at the same time, I’m not the main character in those movies.”
