"I was at the Hubbard's, which is a pretty notorious casting agency office in London, doing an audition for Lord of the Rings, and when it ended I went over and talked to John Hubbard, who was running the audition, and he said, 'Hey, it went really well. You should wait around for 5 or 10 mins. We'll give you some feedback. I thought, 'Oh, OK, cool, and I sat in the reception office. As I was reading a magazine waiting, David Bowie came in and signed his little list and went in. And I'm assuming he read for Gandalf. I can't think of anything else he would've read for. He may have read for something else, but I'm a huge David Bowie fan, and I was lucky enough to know his son now so just seeing him in person was pretty special to me."


It's rumored that Bowie actually wanted to take on the role of Elrond, the elf lord of Rivendell.


I'm glad they did not cast him as I don't think he would have been a good Elrond.

Really.... weird. lol

I must admit that I am glad they did not cast him as well. i would much prefer the actor they used and agree that he would not have made a good elrond.

I agree as well, I don't think anyone can replace Hugo Weaving as the character.
