Well, I doubt that he auditioned with that hair cut, but who knows. From what I understand about him, he's quite crazy. So, that's probally what they wanted. Plus, he's tall and has a good face for an elf. I guess the get ups these actors wear to play these characters are very elaberate. So, when they take them off and just look normal, they are just that. Normal. You take the vest off of Han or the hat off of Indy you still get Harrison Ford a real action hero. You take the ears and bow away from Legolas and you get Orlando, some crazy xtreme sports nut .
I guess that's good for thier anamosidy (sp?). Those two could walk down the street together and no one would know who they are. They probally like that.
Thanks for clearing up that whole trialer issue. I figured that was it, but I didn't want to miss something. Or worse yet have to hunt for it like in the Harry Potter DVD . Is there anything hidden on LOTR DVD? I hope not .
