- From the UK Daily Mail:
"A forthcoming West End production of the Lord of the Rings is being
menaced by the Beard Liberation Front. Tolkien's epic is big on
facial hair -loads of characters, from the beefiest hero to the the
scurviest dwarf, are hairy-chinned. The BLF wants the show to cast
only actors with real, tug-that-and-see beards.
'We encouraged parents to boo when Robbie Coltrane came on the
screen as Hagrid in Harry Potter because he was wearing a falsie'
say chairman Keith Flett. But Kevin Wallace, producer of LotR, is
refusing to give in. One problem may be that the thespian world is
no longer peopled by Captain Birdeyes. Modern actors tend to be
silken poppets who can barely manage a wispy goatee."
