well.. no.. not really, well older, but he just past the therties and.. well.. some people acutally look better with a few gray hairs... Rupert Graves for instant. and George Clooney.. And Billy Boyd. Martin Freeman too actually.

I've got plenty of grey hairs. cheers {{{What about 'jowls', Norc - do you also have something positive to say about 'jowls'? Cool }}}

Hard to imagine Pippin is that .. grown up. (Happy, Petty? Wink) I've said a lot about their performances in the past, but I think all of them made good hobbits - even Elijah Wood, if you look at the good parts and not the horrible ones (for which I guess it's reasonable to blame the script writers). Sean Astin is still my favourite of the four, in my opinion he deserved an award for his role. He seems to have gone up a size or two, though Laughing

A little bit of random hobbit talk there - it's late, I should hit the bed soon scratch

I wasn't trying to say that Billy Boyd looks two feet from the grave but I think they made him look younger in LOTR and now -- 12 years after filming -- his age is quite noticeable. Not that that's necessarily a bad thing, but when I think of Pippin I still think of a younger Hobbit even though I know that Billy Boyd is the oldest of the four actors. Wink

You see, this is why you are holder of the Most Respected Award Ringdrotten. Even respect for your elders (which is isnt the same as old!)

Embarassed sorry Eldo- was such a shock result I forgot! (plus my usual excuse applies- I was drunk at the time) And besides you don't have a smart uniform like Ringdrotten with shiny buttons. Very Happy

" The portraits hanging above the fireplace in Bag End are based on the likenesses of director Peter Jackson and producer Fran Walsh."
This surprised me when I read this, I had not paid much attention to the pics on the wall in Bag End before.
