Frerin? Is that you?
I am preparing myself for a mass of hate from Gerard Butler fans for saying what I’m about to say. And, before I say it let me just mention I think he is a great actor and I loved his portrayal of Beowulf in the movie Beowulf and Grendel.
However, there has been whisperings and admirings (its a word!) around the place (yes Twitter I’m talking to you) of some screencaps of him from that movie. You see it seems he has a striking resemblance to our Thorin Oakenshield and, therefore, the suggestion has been made that this is what Thorin’s younger brother Frerin would look like. And that is well, like his older brother, HOT! Yes please, I will take both!
"…Frerin?" Was literally the first thing I thought when I saw the first photo, even before I saw that comment. I think that’s awesome.
