More On PJ Cameo

An insider during the Bree scenes sends us this letter:

I see you have the good oil on Peter Jackson’s cameo. I can vouch for the accuracy of this as I was an extra in the film.

As a life long Tolkien fan it was a great thrill to be an extra I can tell you.

PJ plays a man bystander as the hobbits come into Bree . It is dark and pouring with rain – the hobbits come scuttling into Bree and are somewhat over whelmed by their first sight of man sized houses.

Originally Jackson was smoking a long pipe but couldn’t get it too light. After standing round for ages and a couple of takes it was not particularly realistic for someone to be in the rain smoking any way. So instead he grabbed a big carrot. That’s the orange thing he is holding in the photo on your site. [More]
