I agree with your description, Tommy, except for the long white-grey beard...I always pictured his beard as being more...well, tree-colored...maybe kind of leafy...

I tried to imagine a friendly looking Treebeard, but all I got was an angry dendroid soldier thing from some stupid computer game. :(

I imagine a huge greenish/brown guy with arms like tree trunks. He did say trolls were an abomination make to mock Ents, so they should look kinda troll like. Kinda like that troll in Harry Potter, but a bit more tree looking and a bigger head (and thus bigger brain). Both frightening and friendly at the same time... boy this is long winded, isn't it??? Just really big and very earthy looking. (of course, I skipped a lot of description in the book...) And his voice I think RysDavies could do well... I imagine a kinda thoughtful, raspy voice.. sometimes clear, but most of the time sounding like he's talking to himself.

Tommy, John Rhys-Davies is a fine Shakespearian actor and will be more than able to pull off a perfect Treebeard voice. Do not fear. And I agree about the slightly tree-er Potter troll thing, though much skinnier I think. Oh, and there's no ****ing fireside in Wellinghall!

Well, since I don't know who Brian Blessed is, I'll just wait for TTT & listen to JRD's real voice.

Hang on, I remember a documentary that JRD did for National Geographic, about some ancient Rhodesian civilisation. Hmm...boomy enough, that'll do for me.

Rhys-Davies will do fine. But I would have liked Sean Connery's voice too. Friendly, warm, deep and soft. Humming... :)

I liked Connery as William of Baskerville in the Name of the Rose, and he would have made a good Denethor, not Treebeard. But he's too big a name though...he'll be more of a distraction than anything.

I agree 100 percent with all your Connery remarks, Ungoliant. And a major distraction at that.
