Peter Jacksons' kids were in the beginning of FOTR, they were the little kids listening to Bilbo's story at the party.

Viggo's son played an Orc that he killed in ROTK (during the scene where Aragorn saves Eowyn from the Orc general).

Fran Walsh's sort-of cameo was the Wraith's evil shreik. Most of what you hear them shreiking is Fran's actual scream.

If I think of any more I'll post them here.

Now that you mention the scene in FOTR, John Crichton, my memory returns. I think I even pointed it out to my friends when we had a marathon a few years ago.

Jackson's kids were also in the caves in TTT. I'm sure they were also in ROTK but I'm coming up blank right now.

Viggo's son was also the boy who Aragorn helped with the sword in TTT.

That's a real person's scream? Nice.

They were in the crowd that were throwing flowers as Faramir left to try and retake Osgiliath.

I heard the news about the Tolkien estate.....I hope it's settled out of court....but honestly, as much $$$ as New Line brought it, how did it forget to do all of this?

Forget? Naw. They probably followed common entertainment accounting practices that are capable of reducing a box office return of $1 billion into a profit of only $1.

If I ever get to New Zealand, I want to stay at this place:

Hobbit habitats for humanity

If you queued up for Peter Jackson's Lord of the Rings movie trilogy, you'd probably feel right at home in the Hobbit Motel, in Otorohanga, New Zealand. The motel's two hillside burrows are faithful replicas of the fictional hobbit dwellings— right down to the circular windows and doorways, red-and-beige walls, and camouflaged exteriors. The real-life rooms are scaled to human proportions, though, so actual hobbits might find them disagreeable.

The Hobbit Motel is only one part of Woodlyn Park, a bizarre collection of lodgings that includes a 1950s railway car, a dry-docked patrol boat, and a grounded airplane from the Vietnam War. As if that weren't eccentric enough, the complex caters to visitors of the nearby Waitomo Caves, where the star attraction is a colony of glowworms. 011-64/7-878-6666, woodlynpark.co.nz.
It's from a story about unique hotels.

Quite ingenious.....I'd like to stay there. I wonder how many people go around NZ looking at all the filming sites.

Hehehe, I love that last one, but you knew that already.

The country is beautiful, and only enforces the idea that I'll have to get over my undesire to spend 24 hours in a can to fly there.

Yeah, cute isn't he

Too bad that he's not there anymore or his friends..its not everyday that you have your photo taken with a cave troll in the background (don't have that one scanned)

24 hours!!! Crap thats a long time, i can see why you haven't been there. It only took me 3 hours actual travel time plus 2 hours once i got there for the time difference.
