gender-swapping Lord of the Rings

By Durin’s beard, this is magnificent!

Annis at LiveJournal set out to find amazing actors to cast in a Lord of the Rings movie. The only caveat was that they had to be of the opposite gender of the characters in the book… and similar to the gender-matched actors who appeared in Peter Jackson’s trilogy.

A taste of her results:

Cate Blanchett Lord of the Rings

Phyllisa Law Lord of the Rings

See all the rest at LiveJournal.

Hollywood is not kind to women. And yet… there are so many incredible female actors who’ve managed to carve out unique spaces for themselves. They just need more opportunities to show off. It shouldn’t be a fantasy to imagine them in juicy roles like these.
