In the third episode of Josh Gad’s web series, ‘Reunited Apart’, the cast and crew behind Peter Jackson’s ‘Lord of the Rings’ came together for a trip down memory lane.
Reuniting after 20 years, cast members Sean Astin, Billy Boyd, Dominic Monaghan, Viggo Mortensen, John Rhys-Davies, Sean Bean, Liv Tyler, Andy Serkis, Hugo Weaving, Miranda Otto, and Karl Urban. Director Peter Jackson, composer Howard Shore, and co-writer Philippa Boyens joined Gad for a 50-minute chat for the charity No Child Hungry.
Delving behind the scenes on the filming of the trilogy, Jackson revealed that Bean’s infamous line “One does not simply walk into Mordor” was actually written just one day before filming to the dismay of Bean who had trouble remembering his lines.
“What Sean did, which I thought was really clever, is he got a print-out of the speech taped to his knee,” Jackson said. “If you watch the scene now, you’ll see every time that Sean has to check his script.”
The latest ‘Reunited Apart’ follows the footsteps of Gad’s reunions with the cast and filmmakers of ‘The Goonies’ and ‘Back To The Future’.
