from my current guilty pleasure, E! Online:
Untried but much talented Australian actor David Wenham was chosen to play the pivotal role of Faramir over Hollywood golden boy and studio favorite Ethan Hawke.
Egad! I didn't know this! Ethan Hawke could have been Faramir? I don't think it would really fit, he would be more dark and brooding than Aragorn! Wenham's portrayal and countenance fit the youngish Faramir who has to be both heroic and a confused son to the crazed Denethor.
I just realized that 90% of my posts this week have been about movies and TV in general. Aak, I need my life back.
