EDIT: Wow, I'm sorry I missed the whole MST3K thing. It rather surprised me to see it was Pingo doing it (I didn't stop to hang out in the KS comments much, lol, so I didn't realize she'd done it before :lol:).

Just curious. In what way was it surprising?

This... this film... I... can't even... *headdesk*

 

And this is what made Hollywood decide Karl Urban was perfect for Eomer?

Foresight isn't quite as 20/20 as hindsight.

 

They had a hard time casting LOTR. It might be a much beloved novel, but it was considered by many to be almost unfilmable. Filming a trilogy in one go meant it was a long time commitment with a relatively unknown director filming half a world away from Hollywood. I remember reading they had a hard time filling many starring roles. So a handsome local lad like Karl who could remember lines was a blessing for the film.

 

Edited to add: Post 1000. I was hoping for something profound. Oh well, at least it was a post about Tolkien, if it weren't for him I might never have developed a love for little metal minis.

I didn't notice Karl Urban until his fantastic McCoy for the Star Trek reboot. He's a remarkable actor.

 

That film is just terrible.

re: Mayo - I put mayo on only three things:

 

- hamburgers (sometimes)

- BLTs/tomato sammies (always)

- cold turkey sandwiches (the sort you make from leftover roast turkey) ((clearly always or how else do you eat them? like a barbarian???))

 

Obviously, some foods have mayo in them - for example, summer salad - but I do not apply mayo to anything else. That way lies madness.

 

 

re: Firefly - Haven't watched it yet. I keep meaning to and then just when I've got my queue clear and am looking to start a new series, someone has to come along and talk it up again. So I bump it down and put it off for fear of going in with expectations too high (either mine for the series, or other people with that eager expectancy of wanting to know what I thought). Same thing happens with Dr. Who and goodness knows what other series.

 

Granted, fan glee can work for a series. I sort of wrote off Buffy for a few years until the popularity peaked. ....I mean, it did take me something like ten years after it went off air (not sure if I'm exaggerating - just guessing) to watch it, but I eventually did. I am very heartily glad that someone just mentioned Sherlock off hand as something they enjoyed and I was able to ( ::puts on hipster glasses now:: ) watch the series before it reached critical mass of fans and was everywhere. [On the subject, the latest episode is burning a hole in my HD. But I'm being good and waiting to watch it with my parents since I got them hooked on the series too.]

 

 

There was some other topic I was going to comment on, but I got a lap full of niece-monster who wanted to watch kitties. Then regained control of the computer only to be handed a squirming baby-monster. Then there was breakfast. And all I can remember is mayo and Firefly. You're welcome.

See, I thought it was him as Cupid. In Xena/Hercules. In my head Karl Urban = Cupid.

 

He's way hot :wub:

I don't remember him in Xena/Hercules, but then again it's been a LONG time since I've seen those two shows. They are on my Netflix queue for re-watch status. I remember being a kid and loving those shows though.

As Red said, he was Cupid.

 

A very blonde, very 90s Cupid.

 

His first line in the series was (to Aphrodite), "Yo, mom. What up?"

 

(SWMBO is a huge Karl Urban fan.)

 

Red, are you watching Almost Human?

I tried to watch Buffy, but couldn't make it through the first season.

 

I re-discovered Gorillaz last night in a fit of insomnia, and I'm slowly working my way through all their music I haven't heard yet.

Well, so far the star power consists of Charlie Sheen's uncle.

When I re-watch the shows I'll make sure to keep an eye out. He's a good actor, liked him in the new Star Trek movies as McCoy and really enjoying the new show Almost Human.

Man, I love me some Buffy! I'm re-watching it now and I think I'm in season 4.
