    After seeing her in Pearl Harbor (one of the only things I liked about that movie) and now in Serendipity, I sure wish she had Liv's part in Lord of the Rings.
    Of course I haven't seen the movie yet, and maybe Liv will knock my socks off and make me rue saying this, but based on past viewings, I would rather see Kate in that role than Liv. This could be my "other" brain talking though... [​IMG]

    Yes, I think she would have a good choice.

    I'd like to see Kate and Liv star in a movie for which I'm writing the screenplay. It's called Naked in a Hot Tub With Me! [​IMG]
    ------------------
    He thought on homeland, the big timber, the air thin and chill all the year long. Tulip poplars so big through the trunk they put you in mind of locomotives set on end. He thought of getting home and building him a cabin on Cold Mountain so high that not a soul but the nighthawks passing across the clouds in autumn could hear his sad cry. Of living a life so quiet he would not need ears. And if Ada would go with him, there might be the hope, so far off in the distance he did not even really see it, that in time his despair might be honed off to a point so fine and thin that it would be nearly the same as vanishing.

    Matt, I can totally dig on Emanuelle Beart (not in LoTR but as a beautiful woman) but I don't think I'll ever fully understand your infatuation with Rini Bell... [​IMG]
    BTW, Kate's unavailable for your movie project. I just told her she couldn't leave the house for a month! [​IMG]

    ...and Kate Winslet as Eowyn (not that I have anything against Miranda Otto). I believe she and Peter Jackson (who directed her in her film debut) may have discussed her participation, but schedules didn't permit.
    Thus, the full triumvirate of Kates (or "Cates") would have been included in the cast. But I'm carping.

    I've already signed over a last will and testament to my parents, and brother and sister. I feel I'll be dead in the next few days. I now accept my fate and take the leap towards death. Okay...1...2...3...

    Aw, Matthew. What would you do with her? She's old enough to be your mother! Wouldn't you rather have girls your own age? [​IMG]
    Edit: BTW, if you really want to check Ms. Beart out, rent a copy of La Belle Noiseuse! Oh man!

    Speaking of Kate Beckinsale naked, I just watched "Haunted" last night. Wow!
