(Hu)Man of Many Hats (ep2): A Day in the Shire (My Role in Lord of The Rings)
Most of you don't know this, but I had a small (but important) role in The Lord of the Rings trilogy...

Unfortunately Peter Jackson (the director) decided to cut the scene from the movie, stating "this guy is way too big to be a Hobbit".

My agent and I pleaded for him to just shrink me using CGI, but Peter insisted that they were already over budget in the special effects department and the scene was left on the cutting room floor, never to be seen...until now.

It's been several years since the release of the trilogy, but I was finally able to get a hold of my footage from the editors.

My scene begins as I'm frolicking in The Shire, then it takes a turn for the dramatic...

Can you believe they cut that out? While I will always cherish my time in The Shire, I can't help but wonder if I was robbed of my Oscar moment.

But there is no point holding on to regrets or worrying about "what-ifs", because as Gandalf once told me "all you have to decide is what to do with the time given to you".

PLEASE share this post and the video to help me get my own LOTR spinoff movie, "Dude, Where's My Ring?"

See you in The Shire!
