After part one and part two it’s time for part three of our casting. The “What if J.R.R. Tolkiens trilogy ‘Lord of the Rings’ would become a musical – a musical during the 80th”. In our last part of the casting we bring to you the Humans and the Villains of Middle Earth.
Humans of Rohan
Theoden – Joe Cocker
His raspy, gravelly singing voice is one of a kind. Since the ‘Woodstock’-festival he can’t be ignored and he is still a great singer and very successful with songs like ‘Sail Away’ or the ‘Beatles’-cover ‘With a Little Help from my friend’.
Eowyn – Cindy Lauper
The lady-punk of the 80th. Cindy Lauper had international top-hits like ‘Girls Just Want to Have Fun’, ‘Time After Time’ and ‘She Bop’.
Eomer – Nick Beggs
After Limahl left ‘Kajagoogoo’ Nick Beggs became front-man. They had great songs like ‘Too Shy’, ‘Big Apple’ and ‘The Lion’s Mouth’.
Humans of Gondor
Denethor – Meat Loaf
The man with the most wonderful impressive voice. He could sing every opera and is doing great rock-music. Next to his singing he is also an actor and had been at ‘Rocky Horror Picture Show’.
Faramir – Luke Goss
The brother of Boromir is Faramir and the brother of Matt Goss is Luke Goss.
Saruman – Steven Tyler
Next to being father of ‘Lord of the Rings’-actress Liv Tyler, Steven Tyler is lead-singer of Aerosmith. They’d been and they are a very popular american hard-rock-band.
Grima – Falco
Hans Hölzel alias Falco was an Austrian singer. He had been a very cranky one but also very genius and adorable. Sadly he died much too early during a car crash in the Domenican Republic. His US-number one hit ‘Rock me Amadeus’ was the first and is still the only german-speaken song which climed the charts that high.
Sauron – Michael Jackson
The King of Pop – Rest In Peace Michael!
