Behold this quote from the wee-fellow himself when MTV talked to him at Sundance:
“They really want us to come back, and I think there’s a really strong chance that we might be back. We’re not in The Hobbit, no, but I think the idea in [Jackson’s, Del Toro’s and the other producers’] heads is that the trilogy of the Lord of the Rings films was so beloved by the fans that they’re really keen to try to say thank you for the support that they gave to the Lord of the Rings movies and possibly bring back some of those characters that they know and love.”
Uh, hm. Look Dominic, I know life is tough right now. You’re no longer part of an Academy Award winning movie trilogy, you were killed off from one of the best shows on television, and you were dumped by Evangeline Lilly, one of the hottest women on the planet. However, there’s no reason to start being delusional. See, in The Hobbit, your character wasn’t even alive yet, other characters? Aragorn? Metro Elf? Dwarf Guy? They were. So when they say they want characters to come back, they probably don’t mean you.
Aw man, I was pretty mean just now, even for me. I was uh…just kidding. And Charlie was one of my favorite characters on Lost. For serious.
