RANDOM LOTR TRIVIA: Eight of the nine actors who played the Fellowship in the first movie had the elvish word for "Nine" tattooed on their body. The sole holdout was John Rhys-Davies (Gimli). Upon hearing of this, Rhys-Davies's stunt double got the tattoo instead.
Yea gimli! -blam!- the followers!
Yeah, he thought it prudent. But I thought the bit about his stunt double taking his place at the tattooist was priceless.
