...seeing as how ya mentioned LotR - Return of the King...heres a little tid-bit for ya:
My flatmate and a few friends have been doing 'pick-up shots' and scenes for Return of the King. They did a drinking scene last week, which doesn't
feature in the book but hey, its filmed in NZ, so drinking is a given.
But anyway...Gimli and Legolas and a group of Rohan/Gondorians are having a piss-up and start playing drinking games. Legolas questions Gimli as to
the point of the game, to which Gimli replies "The point? The point my pointy eared friend is to drink as much mead as you can...and the last one
standing wins!" Basically everyone gets completely trashed...yet Legolas, in a very Star Trek Vulcan like way appears unaffected and looks around
puzzled at these people falling over drunk etc.
Final shot is of Legolas and Gimli, everyone else is passed out drunk...Gimli says "See...humans...can't handle their mead" and promptly falls over
backwards unconscious. Legolas however is looking at his hand and says "Hmmm...my hands are starting to tingle a little, think its taking
affect"...looks around and notices everyone, including Gimli, is now unconscious and calmly says "So...game over then??"
...my flatmate and a few friends will be very visible during this sequence...they could also be seen featured a few times during Two Towers...
