This month on Patreon, just in time for The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power, we’re breaking down the WILD number of people who almost starred in Fellowship of the Ring in a watch-along commentary! Which A-lister said Frodo was his worst audition? Which rock icon courted Peter Jackson for a role? Who was originally cast as Arwen but had to drop out when she found out she was pregnant? And what the heck would the version starring The Beatles have looked like?? Also – we debate where in Middle Earth we’d most want to live, Samwise starts a midnight lawncare service, and it’s your newest jingle courtesy of And Almost Starring: The Kylie Minogue song!

For those who need to stop of restart the commentary, the sync starts at Timecode: 00:02:12 of this audio track, matched up to 00:00:00 of the film’s timecode.
