With The Hobbit trilogy now concluded and Peter Jackson having theoretically said goodbye to Middle-earth forever, Monaghan's post got us thinking about the rest of the Fellowship. Below, we take a look at all nine members of the Fellowship and what they're up to today.
Elijah Wood (Frodo)
After Frodo said his goodbyes and departed for the Undying Lands (don't pretend you're not tearing up at the mere memory), Elijah Wood veered away from blockbuster lead roles in favour of an eclectic mix of indie movies comprising the great (Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind), the good (Everything Is Illuminated) and the ugly (Green Street).
His most memorable post-Frodo role has to be mute, cannibalistic serial killer Kevin in Frank Miller's Sin City, »

Things will go bump in the night – and probably the daytime, too – in Sky Living’s The Enfield Haunting. The three-parter, debuting on the channel in early May, dramatises the events of 1977 that, if you’ll forgive us for this, put the “eeeee!” into EN3. Here’s a new trailer to give you a better idea of the dark forces at work. And those dark forces aren’t limited to the seemingly supernatural phenomena terrifying the Hodgson family, Anyone allergic to beige, corduroy or John Holmes facial hair, might want to raincheck this. The faithful ‘70s milieu has been painstakingly recreated in a series that juxtaposes the dark, supernatural goings-on of Green Street with the sheer, thumping mundanity of north London in the year of strikes, inflation and the Queen’s Silver Jubilee. Timothy Spall and Matthew Macfadyen play the investigating agents whose very presence in the house may stir »
Birthday boy Charlie Hunnam has been in the Hollywood spotlight since the late '90s, and it's safe to say that he just keeps getting hotter and hotter. The sexiest Charlie Hunnam pictures out there include several recent favorites - bonus points for the ridiculously hot shirtless snaps - but he's been a heartthrob for more than a decade. In the early 2000s, Charlie appeared on Undeclared and starred in Nicholas Nickleby alongside Anne Hathaway then gained even more attention with roles in Cold Mountain and Green Street Hooligans. The character of his career, though, was undeniably Sons of Anarchy's Jax Teller, and he had some crazy-sexy, Gif-worthy moments on the show. Now that the series has ended, we'll be seeing more of Charlie on the big screen, but until then, let's take a look back at his very handsome Hollywood evolution, from the '90s to now. Happy 35th, »
Marvel has a formula that has definitely been successful when it comes to turning their catalogue of comics into movies. When other companies produce movies based on their titles, however, the results are less consistent. One case in point is 2008’s Punisher: War Zone, and director Lexi Alexander says a big part of why the film failed is because Lionsgate was in the driver’s seat, not Marvel. In an interview posted to her personal blog, the Green Street Hooligans director discussed the working relationship between the two companies, and it sounds like she was caught in the middle. Like how Sony owns the rights to Spider-Man and the X-Men, Lionsgate purchased the rights to Punisher. Marvel was involved in the process, but when it came down to it, Lionsgate had the final say, and though she’s publicly stated she’s happy with the final »
I don't think Lexi Alexander would argue with me if I were to say she seems to be pushing herself further and further away from Hollywood with a lot of the comments she's made over the course of her career, and mostly the comments she's made since the box office disappointment of Punisher: War Zone back in 2008. Since that time Alexander has made a movie called Lifted (which doesn't appear to have even been released in theaters) and an episode of something called "BlackBoxTV", but she continues to be outspoken and I've even detailed one of her previous interviews concerning her Punisher movie on the "How Did This Get Madec" podcast. Well, she's at it again and this time she says she wishes Marvel had a little more input on her movie, not Lionsgate. Alexander posted an interview she recently did with Les InRockuptibles on her blog (via The Playlist »

Amityville, the Black Hills of Maryland, Eden Lake… Enfield? Okay, the sleepy north London suburb isn’t as synonymous with horror as those other locales, but residents might beg to differ. The Enfield Haunting, a Sky Living drama capturing the spooky goings-on that took place in the Hodgson household in 1977, will, judging by these first-look stills, be both clammily scary and full of outlandish ‘70s fashions. Any malign presence undeterred by Timothy Spall’s demonic shirt/jacket/tie combo immediately has our fear and respect.Spall stars as Maurice Grosse, a newcomer to the world of paranormal research and a man recovering from recent tragedy. He finds himself drawn in by the strange events of Green Street, EN3. Before you can say “Don’t go there!”, Britain’s answer to Peter Venkman begins investigating the poltergeisty phenomonon, as his wife, Betty (Juliet Stevenson), finds out to her increasing dismay.The »
