This page will give a basic rundown of who will be starring in The Lord of the Rings, and has been divided into four sections: The Fellowship, The Villains, Supporting Roles, and Bit Parts. Move your mouse over each actor's face to reveal the name of the character they will be playing, and leave your mouse there for a moment to reveal the actor's name. Finally, click on each face to get more information on that individual. You may also link directly to each category page by clicking on the appropriate link.

The images for each actor on the content pages come from a variety of sources: some are stills from the film, others are official publicity shots, and others are head shots or from other movies. Leave your mouse over a picture to reveal its source.

"I've always said since first reading the three books, and I've always felt this, that I was born to be in it. And now I can say I am! I'm very happy. And Saruman, he's the head wizard. An enormously important role."
-- Actor Christopher Lee (Saruman)
