It looks like middle earth won’t be seeing Aragorn in the two-part prequel series of The Hobbit. This may be much to the disappointment of Viggo Mortensen’s fans should the director and producer of the said film version of the J.R.R Tolkien’s novel retain its genuine storyline.
Peter Jackson’s Lord of The Rings Trilogy has made Lord Aragorn quite the ladies’ man even in contemporary times, as he’s got even this middle earth woman writing this article openly expressing that she wouldn’t mind if the Hollywood version of the classic novel deviates a bit from the written version.
However, Mortensen admits that he does not expect a reprisal of his role although he was approached by Peter Jackson for a possible appearance in The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. The actor reveals his willingness to have another go at his role, but it all depends on any last minute plans to include his character.
For those who are quite familiar with the written version, many would rather that Hollywood stick to its true storyline. Some familiar faces from Lord of The Rings are still in the roster such as Cate Blanchet, Elijah Wood, Ian Mckellen, Christopher Lee and Orlando Bloom.
As it is, Lord Aragorn is known to have lived more than 200 years in the book, but that doesn’t take his character back to the time of the Hobbits. It may irk some Tolkien fans if the film version takes a whole new spin on this but, if it rakes in more bucks from women eager to catch another glimpse of this handsome King, then let’s leave it up to Hollywood to do it’s magic.
“The Hobbit: An unexpected Journey” is slated to show in theatres December 14, 2012 while its 2nd part “ There and Back Again” is right on schedule for December 13, 2013.

Tranformers: Dark of the Moon is doing quite well in the box office even without the sexy sultry Megan Fox steaming up the screen. Many are surely disappointed with her absence as the actress sure has had many of her fans wanting and waiting to see her smoke up the screen and revel in the fact that geeky and nerdy college boys still have hopes of having a hot girlfriend who knows her cars and engines!
Word has it that Stephen Spielberg gave actress Megan Fox the pink slip and fired her from the third sequel of the Transformers series. This comes a year after when Fox claimed she decided to leave the movie. The director himself, Michael Bay, spoke on this matter saying that it was Spielberg who put his foot down with a decision to give Fox the axe. Reports have put the actress on a bad light, as she was cited for very unprofessional behaviour on set.
Finally breaking his silence about the issues , Michael Bay specifically pointed that incident when Fox threw comments about him that had the executive producer, Steven Spielber,g decide to fire her right then and there.
Megan Fox was quoted on an interview with Wonderland Magazine in 2009 saying– “He’s like Napoleon and he wants to create this insane, infamous mad-man reputation. He wants to be like Hitler on his sets, and he is. So he’s a nightmare to work for but when you get him away from set, and he’s not in director mode, I kind of really enjoy his personality because he’s so awkward, so hopelessly awkward. He has no social skills at all. And it’s endearing to watch him.”
Well, that certainly was enough to have made her cross that line and do the walk of shame on the set.
Bay, however has expressed that he wasn’t hurt over the comments but was rather bemused and says it was merely Fox’s personal character shining through in a not so good way. Her former on screen boyfriend Shia LaBeouf openly expressed how Fox suddenly developed this Spice Girl strength and woman empowerment “stuff”.
According to Labeouf, Michael Bay’s filming style was a no-frills no-fluff manner that Fox had a hard time accepting. He puts that his director seems to lack some tact with instructions and may have been what triggered the Hitler comment.
After all that drama, Victoria’s Secret model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley replaced Megan Fox as Shia LaBeouf’s hot new sophisticated British accent girlfriend. Certainly another eye candy on the set and just to add more steam on the screen is Dr,McDreamy, Patrick Dempsey!
