Uma ThurmanIt was a refreshing ‘blast from the past’ this morning when we noticed the MTV Movie Blog relaying the story of Uma Thurman turning down the role of Eowyn in The Lord of the Rings trilogy (BTW – She regrets the decision). A quick search of TORn’s news archives yielded some great old school speculation and casting rumors from 1999-2000 when it was believed that Uma Thurman and Ethan Hawke were all but guaranteed parts in the trilogy. This reporter personally thinks Miranda Otto was absolutely perfect for the role and did not want to see Uma in LOTR. How do you feel? Use the discuss link below to let your voice be heard, then check out the story of Uma’s decision at the MTV Movie Blog. [MTV Movie Blog] [Uma Thurman TORn News]
