JOHN RHYS-DAVIES ACTUALLY VISITED THE SET OF THE HOBBIT WHEN THEY WERE FILMING YELLED “DADDY” AND HUGGED GLOIN! OH MY GOD! THIS ENTIRE CAST!

…I have about 45 minutes until it leaves.
The Hobbit was incredible; I’ll post something longer about that later because right now I’m a bit sleep-deprived, ready to go, and VERY twitchy with nerves over this whole bus thing.

Why did I wait so long???

“The audition was to play a Los Angeles lifeguard. So I turn up, pasty, skinny, off the plane, black shirt. I walk in, there’s like ten guys in there, blonde, tanned, enormous. And I kid you not, one of them had his pant leg rolled up and was going, “Dude, I just don’t know how to get the definition in my calves. I can’t do it.” And I thought, I’m in the wrong place.”
