    I’ve been trying to get him a role in SilmFilm since I joined. He looks similar to Tom Hiddleston and even a bit with Lee Pace, who played Thranduil in The Hobbit.

    With the exception of Gandalf, I don’t want to aim to reuse or even resemble actors from PH’s movies. I strongly want to avoid it.

    Do you have any recommendations?

    I don't know actors. I just do NOT want to copy or even resemble anything from PJ's hideous abominations.

    The Lord of the Rings or The Hobbit?

    I abhor everything PJ did to my favorite author's work. I admit abomination was a bit strong a word.

    I am reminded of a time, some 25 years ago, when I was riding in a car with my friend's family. My friend was a girl of about 10-11, my age at the time. Her mother offered me a peanut butter and honey sandwich, which I rejected vehemently, saying how gross I thought the combination in no uncertain terms. When her mother offered her a sandwich, my friend turned her favorite sandwich down quietly, without saying much about it. When my mother heard about this, I heard no end of it, because I had severely hurt the feelings of my friend by disparaging something she loved. I'd say the opinions of the Jackson films that can be found on this board range from being similar to yours to a deep love. I myself am somewhere in the middle (though I generally gravitate towards your opinion on the Hobbit films). It's ok to say that you don't like something, and even to articulate why, but to state categorically that it is tripe can be taken as a criticism of the taste of an individual who likes that thing. This may not be what you meant, but it is certainly how my friend felt when I insulted her favorite lunch.
