Adrien Brody sat down for a video interview where he describes his most memorable characters as if they were his own. The actor will debut The French Dispatch and Succession Season 3, respectively, on the big and small screen. Brody revealed some of the roles he didnt get to play, including a role in Peter Jacksons Lord of The Rings films.
Brody told GQ that I, somehow, didnt grasp it. I dont know which part I would have been right for, but it was a Hobbit-like character. I was looking for something different.
Brody is incredibly tall, so it makes sense that playing a Hobbit might have felt strange to him. He regretted not taking the role after a date to see the first film in theaters. Via The A.V. Club:
Despite missing out on one of the greatest film franchises of all time, Brody is still pleased with the 2005 remake of King Kong, which is a perfect film despite the fact that nobody punches Godzilla.
