    "Oh, I love it," McCallum says during a recent visit to Seattle. "Peter's a very good friend. Do you know what he did? This is amazing, most people don't know. Not only was it an unbelievable achievement doing three ("Rings" adaptations in a row) -- which he refused to do unless he could do three -- but he only had two weeks off. And do you know what he did when he had those two weeks off? He flew from Sydney to Auckland and spent a week with us (on the Australian set of "Episode 2"), watching us film. He's mad!"
    there is much more and he does not swear (hahahhahahahaha)
    I also found at the same site an interview with R A Salvatore about how the Hobbit and Lord of the Rings influenced his writing

    I think he meant in regards to it's cultural impact, not quality, Sam. I doubt he'd diss his own films like that.[​IMG]

    Glad to see he's a fan. I've never quite understood the whole "SW vs. Any Other Epic" mentality. I've got plenty of room in my heart for SW (OT, non-SE), LoTR, Spiderman, HP, etc.
