Just about anybody of the correct stature could have carried it off better than Billy. The one thing he did bring to the role however, was the annoying characteristic traits one associates with Pippin from having read the book.

Originally posted by scottishlover Um, I beg to differ. John Ronald Ruel(sp?) Tolkien was british. For all we know, he could have written the books, with british and scottish accents in mind.

The characters Pippin, Merry and Frodo were all born and raised in the Shire, (remember that Pippin's real name is Peregrin Took - from a long line of Tooks), hence it's illogical that one should have a different accent. How ludicrous would it have been if Sean Astin (a great actor) had retained his American accent for the role of Sam?

As for my right to criticize? If you have the right to heap praise on an actor, and I disagree with your opinion, do I not have the right to express a counter argument??

Billy Boyd is GORGEOUS! I do not like fighting over people though, so I am quite willing to share

I am also willing to contend this issue. He is a skinny weasly little guy and you are all merely consumed by his fame and the fact that he is, sadly, Scottish.

I would suggest that, if instead of being an actor, he was a butcher's delivery boy, you would not give him a second glance.

I cannot imagine any of you nudging your friend to catch a glimpse of his worm like frame, struggling to pedal his cycle along the road, with his basket full of black pudding and lorne sausage.

Lol, bit huffy are we Rob? Oh wells, I get scrappy after hearing guys go on about how wonderful Britney Spears is because she's "hot", even though she's got no talent, is totally brainless, v. rude & vulgar, and quite frankly... she dresses like a complete trollop.

But anyroad, I do think that Billy and Dom did a brilliant job of playing off one anothers characters. They made Merry and Pippin v. lovable indeed.

Lord of the Rings fan -TOTALLY!-
Billy Boyd fan -OH YEAH!-
Love his accent - love his humour - he is so gorgeous! Which is weird because he is old enough to be my dad but ........ HE IS HOT! I also loved the part in Return of the King when he was singing. I wanted to kick Denthor (John Noble) so hard! Eating so messy when Billy is singing! But he is a wonderful actor and very cute. *Dominic is great too! They are so funny together!*
