      ASTIN HAS HOPE FOR RINGS

      Sean Astin--who plays Sam Gamgee in Peter Jackson's upcoming Lord of the
      Rings film trilogy--told the Popcorn U.K. Web site that he hopes the movies
      live up to expectation. "It was really hard work, but it was really good,
      important work," Astin said of the grueling 14-month shoot in New Zealand.
      "What Peter Jackson has tried to accomplish--and what he has
      accomplished--is so massive that it's staggering."

      Astin plays the loyal sidekick to Elijah Wood's hero, Frodo. Despite the
      arduous shoot, Astin said there were compensations. "New Zealand is one of
      the last unspoiled splendors on the face of the Earth, so we were working
      in
      Middle-Earth--with the green, lush forests and the rolling hills and the
      fjords and the snow-capped [Southern] Alps. It was amazing helicoptering to
      the top of these mountains or working on an active volcano for six weeks.
      It
      was pretty spectacular."
