But where was Drogo?

Just saw BOTFA....really like it except.....

Early in the making there was a press release of casting which included Drogo Baggins. I was, obviously, quite excited to be included. But sadly it appears I didn't make the final cut....:(. sigh.....maybe in the Extended Edition....... :roll:

Ryan Gage was cast to appear as a small cameo of Drogo. But apparently PJ liked his performance and recast him in the much expanded role of Alfrid Lickspittle.

As much as I thought it would be cool for my namesake to be in the movie I was very curious how they were going to include him. Some kind of scene where he dies and Frodo moves in with Bilbo. Except he is far away from Hobbiton so would introduce another location and storyline. Oh well.... :roll: :roll: :roll:

...And another time. Frodo wasn't born till way after Bilbo's return.

Of course, when did that stop PJ? :lol:
