Yup, it's already Friday in Singapore. I'm writing the draft of this post on my way to work as I forsee it will be a busy day.
Hmm, got alittle carried away, aren't we? Ahem, so I was exhausted but I had to get that meme out and made. By the time I finished it, it was almost 3 and I have wake up for work in like 4 hours' time. I have no regrets. I absolutely enjoyed the process.
Wow, this is turning into a loooong post. Check out some of my thoughts on the discoveredfacts after the jump with a break down of a few of the sections of the meme I made. Happy weekend in advance!
Fact: Tobey Maguire, David Tennant and James McAvoy had all been considered to play the role of Bilbo Baggins.
First seen him as Spiderman, no offense but I've never been a fan of his. I just find him to be too 'geeky' looking in Spiderman and it stuck with me. ^^;
Umm, he will always be Bartimius 'Barty' Crouch Junior to me from Harry Potter. The moment he morphed from Professor 'Mad Eye' Moody back into Barty Junior - it had been seared into my brain. I mean, no doubt he's a great actor. But his looks aren't along the line of a young Bilbo.
He would have made a great version of young Bilbo but I think he's too pretty and cute! But we all seen how cute he was as Mr. Tumnus in The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch and Wardrobe.
Conclusion: Martin Freeman ish the PERFECT choice~!
Fact: Before Peter Jackson took over the rein from Guillermo Del Toro, Guillermo had actually approached Brian Blessed for a potential Thorin.
Fact: Guillermo also thought Ron Perlman will be a perfect Smaug.
Conclusion: We can see the difference opinions of both Peter Jackson and Guillermo Del Toro on casting. Guillermo tends to go to those rugged, talented, experienced actor type. And PJ tends to go for talented ones with the looks. =X I mean PJ seems to select his actors with the fans in mind. No matter what, I am glad that Richard Armitage is Thorin, Benedict Cumberbatch is Smaug/Necromancer and Martin Freeman is Bilbo. <3
