AK, just because someone disagrees with you or asks you to explain or defend an opinion doesn't mean you have to leave the discussion or that they have a personal problem with you. It's fair for anyone to disagree and/or ask for more information. If you can't defend what you've said, then you can just say, "Just my opinion," and let it go, or if you can defend it, you can go ahead and give your reasons, but you don't have to quit the discussion. It's not personal at all. We're all friends here ...

I honestly don't see why it is wrong for me to think that a talented actor like Lee would do a good job as Smaug.

I own the Hobbit (but forgot that I did until a month or two ago) but have yet to read it. Or any of the Lord of the Rings books...I own the first on my Nook.

it isn't wrong Miss R. AK just dislikes being on what appears to be the losing side of an argument.

I also think that if Lee wants to be the voice of Smaug, I'm all for it!! That's not lowering yourself when you're an actor. Jeeze, how many great actors have voiced some of the most ridiculous CGI movies of today? Many. They don't consider it lowering yourself. It's work for Pete's sake. If I was 90 years old, I would love to get a gig voicing a cool character like Smaug rather than just laying in bed being spoonfed by a big nurse!

Um, wow....
Please don't bow out because people disagree with you. Without disagreement, these threads would be nothing but "I liked this", "I liked that", "I agree!" BORING. No one's offended or attacked you here - yet. If they do, they should leave, not you. You've only stated your opinion!

Anyway, I think that Lee should definitely return as Saruman, but just to let you know, he was already corrupt during the events of the Hobbit, just not publicly.

As for Lee voicing Smaug, I wouldn't mind it; he's got a great voice. I'd rather him play Saruman again... but there's also the possibility of both: John Rhys-Davies played Gimli and voiced Treebeard, after all. Though Treebeard sounded totally different. Smaug would have a more "normal" voice, that isn't played with by effects, as far as I know. If Lee hadn't played Saruman already, I'd totally be for his voicing Smaug, but as it stands I think I'd prefer a different actor.

Good. He was a terrific Gandalf. I can't imagine anyone else in the role.

but I feel the same way about Saruman, and I wish they would think of a way to include Lee as Saruman without his having to travel - I understand why an old guy like that doesnt want to be far from home for a long time ... but maybe they could arrange his scenes to be shot near home for him.

It sounds like he's in talks to return as Saruman.
