126. The scene where Sam and Rosie are getting married was awkward for Sean Astin, because his wife was on scene. So to distract him, Viggo Mortenson kissed Billy Boyd. :D

^You're kidding, right? LOL!!! :blink: ^


*tries to think of something obscure and unmentioned*

*fails*

127.) Viggo Mortenson almost drowned when the current sucked him 15 ft. under in the scene when he's floating down the river to Brego.

128.) Viggo was one of the few who actually grew his hair out instead of donning a wig.

129.) There was a total of *i think* 27 different sizes made of the 'One Ring' thus it was the '27 Rings of Total Power'.

130.) The Ring you see spinning in the air at the beginning of FotR has a circumference of ~5 inches.

YAY ME I ACTUALLY THOUGHT OF SOME COOL THINGS! :-D

Actaully PJ and Sean actually said to his wife that there would only be one take! And that Viggo and Billy were there to make it feel like a real wedding :P

131) When filming the scene where all the people bow to the hobbits at the coronation it was just the crew, the hobbits and Viggo. But they didn't have a the real crown to give to Viggo, so he fashioned his own out of paper and with each take it got more and more silly. :goofy:

I would love to see if we can actually get to 1000! It would be an encyclopedia of inane LotR trivia. :teehee:

132. Viggo carried his prop sword with him everywhere, so that it would become 'part of him' in the same way that Aragorn's sword was part of him.

133. Said sword was a real sword and not a plastic movie-sword, and he got into trouble with local law enforcement for it several times.

134.) You know that scene at Henneth Annûn in TTT where Faramir kind of hooks the Ring on his sword and is looking at it? ("A chance for Faramir, captain of Gondor, to show his quality.")
Well, they had to get a stunt guy to hold the sword because David Wenham was afraid his hand might slip, and he didn't want to stab Frodo. :p

140.) Viggo Mortenson is a big hockey fan of the Montreal Canadians, so he wore a Montreal Canadian jersey under his armor while filming.
