From a blog about a visit to Disneyland:
A highlight of our trip was that we got to meet Sean Astin aka Sam from The Lord of the Rings movies. He was the nicest guy. His wife offered to take this picture of him with our family. The following day we ran into him again. This time HE noticed us and said "Hi again" When I told him that my brothers were big fans and were jealous that we met him. He asked what their names were and when I said Joe and Greg he wrote a quick hello " To Joe and Greg " I thanked him and wondered to myself who would have custody. So if you liked him before- like him more knowing what a nice guy he is.



From the date stamp on the pic, this is from when Sean was at Disneyland last month.

Last Saturday, Sean filmed a pilot for a new series! Before you get too excited, this is not for TV. It is part of the NASA Spitzer Space Telescope's IRrelevant Astronomy video podcasts, a joint project of NASA and CalTech.

You may want to acquaint yourself with the series; it is funny, entertaining and even informative! I have totally fallen in love with IR-2, the host of the Radio Astronomy Talk Show, and am hoping he will be part of Sean's proposed series.

Whether or not the series is further developed, the episode taped last weekend will be posted on the IRrelevant Astronomy website, as well as being available on iTunes and Youtube. Åsa Wallander and the voice of Betty White are also featured. I'll report back when it's available, which should be fairly soon.

By the way, the producer of the show says Sean "was a joy to work with." ♥

The Lord of the Rings: Aragorn's Quest, a new third-person action adventure game is set to appear for the Wii, DS, PS2 and PSP this fall.

From http://www.gamingtarget.com/article.php?artid=9869
In The Lord of the Rings: Aragorn's Quest, preparations are underway in Hobbiton for a great party to welcome Aragorn, King of Gondor, and honour Samwise Gamgee for his service during the War of the Ring. The children of the town are eager to learn more of this great man and so Samwise, now Mayor, embarks on a tale of the revered warrior, Strider—as Aragorn is known in his Ranger days - and his most valiant battles.

And check out the video here!

Sean narrates as Sam telling the tale to his children, just as The Hobbit should be done!
:-D

(Heh, Sean needs to brush up a little on how to do a good Sam accent!)
