20 Actors That Were Almost Cast In The Lord Of The Rings

27 February 2015 1:33 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

New Line Cinema

As well as being a landmark achievement in filmmaking, Peter Jackson’s The Lord Of The Rings has a genuine claim to the title of Greatest Movie Trilogy Ever. Individually, each movie is brilliant in its own right but together they created a critically-acclaimed cultural phenomenon, and the series will no doubt be essential viewing for cinema fans for generations to come.

In amongst the cutting edge-visual effects, pioneering motion capture work and stunning production design that became hallmarks of the series, one of the trilogy’s strongest aspects is in its casting. Opting against including any A-list names, the production instead chose actors that could embody Tolkien’s characters and grow into their roles over the course of three movies.

The approach paid huge dividends as the likes of Viggo Mortensen’s Aragorn, Ian McKellen’s Gandalf and Andy Serkis’ Gollum became cultural icons in their own right, »
