Sean Bean deserves his own thread

Well, since Hugh Jackman got one...

I have such newfound respect (huge honking gaga crush) for the man after seeing him in Fellowship and the Sharpe series. I think the only things I'd seen him in before were Patriot Games and Goldeneye where he did such good jobs playing the baddies that I did not like him at all.

I thought Boromir was going to be another rat bastard, especially after reading the book, but I was absolutely amazed and delighted that Sean Bean's Boromir was incredibly sympathetic and his death incredibly moving. Great interpretation of the role!

And Sharpe just kicks ass. He is a very good honorable man, though I do wish that he'd stop punching people all the time, not that they didn't deserve it.

Post pics, thoughts, recommendations, reviews, etc here.

well, since I'm the one who started the Hugh Jackman thread....(so sue me, he's a hottie and I couldn't help myself )

Yep, I was pleasantly surprised with Boromir. I remember disliking him rather thoroughly in the book, but I found myself feeling empathy for him despite myself in the movie. Sean Bean manages to give the role a good multi-faceted dimension and I wish he would be around for parts 2 and 3. Ah well. I guess I'll have to go rent some of his older movies now.

Sula, I think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship, lol. Alas, no more Sean Bean in the remaining LOTR movies. Well we still have all the remaining lovely men of the Fellowship.

I have begun to hit the video stores already. Got me a copy of Stormy Monday from 1988. And I got the last three eps of Sharpe to go through. Yikes, can't believe I've watched like 1100 minutes of the Sharpe series in 3 days. A good friend of mine had all the eps on DVD.

What I would loved to get my hot little hands on is the BBC production of Lady Chatterly, though I would probably combust if I saw it judging by some of these pics.

Anybody got any pics of that Aragon dude? He's HOT! I think Frodo is very very cute but he's too young for me. Oh what the heck go ahead and post him anyway! I just saw the movie two days ago and had been thinking of starting a thread but didn't know how it would go over here, now I know!

lylas, I think this may indeed be the beginning of a beautiful friendship. Speaking of beautiful....




btw, I dunno if I could handle Lady Chatterly...looks too hot to handle.

U2Kitten, check out the thread I started with pics of Aragorn or Viggo. More to come if I can find them.

Foadie, here are a few of Orlando Bloom...



And CatDubh, if your godfather looks like Sean Bean...you got one nice-lookin' godfatha!

Keep Orlando Bloom out of this. This is Sean Bean's thread! Grrrr...



Nice pics as always Sula! Now I wonder where Sean Bean's Fellowship tattoo is?

Just saw Stormy Monday and I highly recommend it. Sean Bean looks incredibly young in it, and he plays a very innocent sweet young man, very different from any of the other roles I've seen him in. His character gets caught up in a dispute between the owner of a jazz club and a ruthless American real estate developer who has some very shady and violent connections. He also ends up falling in love with an American waitress who turns out to be a part time call girl for the real estate developer.

Sting plays the club owner and does a really amazing and cool job. Tommy Lee Jones and Melanie Griffith are the Americans. The love story plotline between Bean's and Griffith's characters is really quite lovely, and Tommy Lee Jones is his old charasmatically viscious self. Fabulous jazz score and great cinematography too.

Does anyone know what those look like - out of curosity.... I guess that's what 2 years on an island will do to people.

Well, this is all I know of the tattoos:

All nine actors in the Fellowship got an identical tattoo - "The Nine" written in Elvish. They didn't all get it in the same place though. Sean Astin (Sam) and Billy Boyd (Pippin) got them on their ankle. This is Sean Astin's, on his right ankle:


Elijah's is on the right side of his stomach.
"I don't know how I picked this spot. It just felt like the right place. All I can tell you is when I was getting it, it hurt like a motherfucker!"

Orlando Bloom's (Legolas) is on his right wrist.
"I got mine on my forearm, because I'm an archer."

As for the location of Sean Bean's tattoo, I picked up this snippet somewhere:
Sean Bean was the last to get the tattoo, and claimed it was “On the other side” from his Sheffield United tattoo!
I don't know how much that helps; I guess we'll just have to use our imaginations

Ah cool! Thanks for the info on the tattoo stefananny.

That means he probably got his tattoo on the upper part of his right arm, since his Sheffield United tattoo is on the upper part of his left arm.




It's interesting how they've disguised or covered up his tattoo when necessary. In Sharpe, they covered it up with a scar. Went with all the other scars on Sharpe's body.
