Billy Connolly is…

Dain Ironfoot. (If you are not a Tolkien nerd, skip this).

    Perfect casting.

  • Theviking

    Man you are so slow! I knew this like a week ago! But them I am a major Tolkien nerd. :)

  • Sean P. Dailey

    Never heard of him.

  • Sandra Miesel

    He was spectacular as Queen Victoria’s ghillie in MRS. BROWN, if that jogs your memory, Sean.

    • Sean P. Dailey

      I never saw that. But I see he played the pervy priest in X-Files: I want to Believe, so that’s something to go on.

      • Dan F.

        I know him best from the Boondock Saints movies (plays the father to the ‘saints’)

  • Consistency

    Jackson did a good job with casting the LOTR so hopefully this will work as well.

    Have you seen the trailer? How awesome is that rendition of Over the Misty Mountains?!

    Speaking of things to skip if you are not a nerdy Tolkien nerd

    …and by nerdy, I mean, be prepared for the geekiest display of sustained fanboy effort you have ever seen.

    In your LIFE.

    Don’t say I didn’t warn you.

    Really? Well, I just hope it works out in the end, after all PJ did a great job with casting in the LOTR trilogy. Still though…Billy Connolly? The comedian? I was not expecting that…

  • Hezekiah Garrett

    He’ll always be Head of the Class to me.
