Longtime New Line studio spokesman Steve Elzer has left the company, TORN has learned. Elzer, who is highly regarded within the entertainment industry and has been a longtime friend to me is considering a number of opportunities.

Steve was Senior Vice President of Corporate Communications with New Line, and one hell of a great guy. We met online years ago and our mutual LOTR interests quickly became a friendship. I hope Steve lands somewhere really interesting and can continue to give us juicy tid-bits on LOTR in the future!

Best of luck Steve, New Line will be different without you.
