If you haven’t seen these seven mini-videos, snippets of a recent interview promoting the The Hobbit DVD release, please take the time to do so. Posted by Getty.com, they offer some new tidbits and insights about the making of the film (including poor Richard’s sincere hope the moment an overheated Thorin tossed his cookies into a bucket after shooting the goblin scene never made it onto the DVD).
Richard is obviously fighting some ailment, sounding congested and having to swallow several times and clear his throat, but he seems in good spirits (the raised ironical brow and those talking hands!) and looks quite sporty in his cardi and tie. Unfortunately, there is a Getty Images logo splashed across his handsome face. WelL, we can’t have everything, can we? In the meanwhile, a few caps from his appearance on Lorraine Kelly’s show. Oh, the expressive brow, big geeky laugh and the Tongue of Concentration!
