then and now: LORD OF THE RINGS (2001-2003)

It’s been a mere seven years since the Lord of the Rings trilogy wrapped up, but I figured I would devote a Then and Now posting to the epic cast (at least a portion of them) to both catch up with what they’ve been up to in the past near-decade and take a gander at some of their earliest work. So, though the likes of Cate Blanchett, Liv Tyler, Hugo Weaving, Sean Bean, etc. have been left off (it’s a giant cast, folks) here is Lord of the Rings, Then and Now…
