cast lord of the ring

The Academy Awards needs a goddamn award for best cast ensemble.

Lord of the rings, Bobby, Crash, little miss sunshine, birdman, spotlight…

So many movies deserved one.

This year Hidden Figures, Fences, Manchester by the sea, Lion, Moonlight… Casting directors are doing a great job.

“Liv Tyler, when I first arrived on set I thought, “That’s Liv Tyler, she’s pretty famous.” I’m the sort of person that doesn’t move forward to people and be like, “Hey, I’m your new best friend!” I’m not like that, give them their space, they’re famous, they must be sick of people who want to get close to them all the time. But she came straight over to me, which is sort of quite un-actress type behavior and she gave me a huge hug and said, “I’m so glad you’re here! There’s another woman here now! It’s all been men! We can do things together! We can paint nails!”

Miranda Otto on meeting Liv Tyler for the first time


“I’d done a radio play with Miranda about 10 years before – this was in the days when they actually did radio plays in Australia – but there was one particular sequence where we had to have sex in a bath and they actually had a bath in the studio with the microphones in the bath and the two of us standing in the bath, pretending to have sex, but Miranda [chuckles]…Miranda and I just couldn’t contain ourselves and laughed for a little too long for the director who got rather annoyed with us both. But after that, this was the next time that I saw Miranda: in the Houses of Healing, on my very first day on Lord of the Rings.”
