The Beatles In The Lord Of The Rings Killed By J.R.R. Tolkien
Back in the 1960’s, John Lennon wanted to make a Lord Of The Rings movie with John as Gollum, Paul as Frodo, Ringo would take on the role of Sam, and George would have taken on the role, or robes, of Gandalf. J.R.R. Tolkien didn’t like the idea and since he held the screen rights at the time, that was as far as it went. There would be no Magical Mystery Tour of Hobbits.
That was fine with Paul. He thought Lennon would get all of the attention and he preferred that the Beatles would get equal parts.
This according to blaster.com and an old interview with People magazine and Peter Jackson.
Maybe Richard Nixon as Sauron??
