Yessss! Brad Dourif as Grima Wormtongue! Cast a freak to play a freak! He is uber cool. He was Piter De Vries in David Lynch's Dune, played a great troubled character in one Episode role in Babylon 5 (which was really like LOTR in space), Saavedro in the video game Myst III: Exile, the voice of Chucky in the Child's Play movies, and lots of psychos in lots of other films and TV. He really is a fantastic character actor.
Can't wait to see Shelob? That could be a huge problem from what I hear....
Oh man. *sighs*

Well, I hate to break this to you, Orimono, but Shelob has been bumped to RotK.
Sniggering has now developed into the Huge Guffaw it was always going to be....
Big Laugh Smilie Big Laugh Smilie Cruel... Too cruel, boys.... But I wasn't going to be the one to break bad news. Big Laugh Smilie Big Laugh Smilie
Sorry no Shelob! Big Smile Smilie

I am really looking forward to Helm's Deep!!
Oh man. *sighs*

Well, I hate to break this to you, Orimono, but Shelob has been bumped to RotK.

Think on the bright side though, Orimono....You'll be able to savour your anticipation for a full year now.
The battle at Helms Deep will be awesome! If any of you are like me and has a dad that subscribes to Popular Science than be sure to be check out either the November or December issue. There is an article on how they made that scene. Very cool! Big Smile Smilie

I wanna see Eowyn and Grima in action!! I saw what Grima looks like. Freaky. The actor actually shaved his eyebrows! Shocked Smilie

Grondy posted a link to the online version of the article your speaking of on the home page, Ladyoflegolas. Indeed, it will be awesome. Said to be the most spectacular battle sequence in movie history! And that's saying A LOT! And what's more, they say it's nothing compared to the Battle of Pelennor Fields in RotK! We've got lots to look forward to, kiddies!

The Actor playing Grima Wormtongue, Brad Dourif, looks freaky in every movie he's in. I bet his resume is full of words like "freaky", "creepy", "eerie" and indeed, "wormy."
I read somewhere that Brad Dourif has been in over 80 movies and over 20 televison roles. Not bad for a man barely in his fifties!

I remember him as Piter in Dune, though I have mixed feelings about that movie (and the book for that matter) in general.

I saw him in a really bad movie called Spontaneous Combustion in the early 90's... basically a Firestarter rip-off. Not one of hs best movies, for sure!

He's really is very talented, though. I'm sure he'll make the perfect Wormtongue ...Like Ian McKellen as Gandalf and Christopher Lee as Saruman... that's just perfect casting. In fact, these roles practically cast themselves!
