Thorondor (voice)


Well-Known Member
Thorondor is the greatest of the Eagles of Manwe, sent by Manwe as another guardian for the Noldor. He helps Fingon rescue Maedhros and later as a guardian for Gondolin. Given that Fingon’s rescue of Maedhros takes place early in Season 4, we should cast Thorondor this season.

Being a voice role, we could go any way with it. I myself have envisioned Thorondor with a smooth baritone voice, maybe Peter Dinklage (and not because he was the Mighty Eagle in Angry Birds, which I didn't watch).
Peter Dinklage
Age: 49
Height: 4'5" (Height matters not in this role)
Roles: Finbar McBride in The Station Agent, Trumpkin in The Chronicles of Narnia, Tyrion Lannister in Game of Thrones, Bolivar Trask in X-Men: Days of Future Past

Daniel Day-Lewis
Age: 61
Height: 6'2" (height matters not)
Roles: Nathaniel Poe/Hawkeye in The Last of the Mohicans, Bill "The Butcher" Cutting in Gangs of New York, Daniel Plainview in There Will be Blood, President Abraham Lincoln in Lincoln

The Execs have expressed interest in recycling Day-Lewis' role as Manwe into playing Thorondor, since Thorondor is affiliated with Manwe. I'm only really familiar with his action role in The Last of the Mohicans, but if they want him instead of using a new actor, so be it.

My feeling is (based on reactions to my own postings, your postings and others, and on the general activity on the forums and the focus of the SIlmfilm activity at this time) that people aren't putting much thought into the casting issues right now. So, have faith, we're getting there.
