New Line's Q&A
3/27/00, 15:19 EST - Xoanon
A number of sites have sent in a sample of the intriguing questions that your users have asked and they have been fantastic. If you have more than two questions you'd like to submit, please feel free to send in a moderately-sized selection and we'll do our best to work in as many as possible.
New Line also stated that they will have many more of these Q&A's with Different people from time to time! This means perhaps we get a chance to speak with some actors or SFX folks!
Also, with New Line saying they'd like to see the other questions we had, I've sent all 10 to them to look over! So it seems we get to ask many more questions than before!
And here is some extra bit of news they sent only to TheOneRing.net
Our next month-long Q&A session will begin on June 1st.
So get your next set of questions ready!
Casting Call in Ruapehu, Te Anau
3/27/00, 13:27 EST - Xoanon
One of my Dutch contacts in NZ send this to me:
"Lord of the rings are calling for extras (soldiers), some time around 13 - 15 April in the middle of the North Island (Ruapehu), it's our skiing mountain in a desert style setting in a cold harsh place."
(Ruapehu is the highest mountain in the Tongariro National Park and has been picked as the main Mordor location - Tehanu)
He also heard there was a similar demand in Te Anau.

Mortensen's photography and large-scale mixed media works carry the intensity of his career. Actor, writer, photographer and painter, Mortensen's journeys have taken an irregular path. Filling notebooks with poetry and drawings, rummaging for salvage to layer into his works, he has an inexhaustible supply of material. Mortensen's mixed media has the true nature of outsider art but also take the purposive form of work by an artist who reinterprets the hours of his existence. [More]

Internet rumors abound this weekend concerning Aussie actor David Wenham. Wenham (Russian Doll, A Little Bit of Soul, Dark city) has been rumored to play Faramir, brother of fallen hero Boromir and younger son of Denethor, Steward of Gondor.
Since my contacts have yet to confirm this, I'm wary to call this a sure thing. Consider it a RUMOR for the moment. More info as it comes.

I just heard yet another item on National Radio about the filming of LOTR, which is to start in about a week. They spoke to the owner of a motel in Ohakune. The motel is called "The Hobbit Motor Lodge"! How appropriate.
