does anyone else think bret looks like a Rider of Rowhan?

Postby fawad-oh-so-prescient » Wed Mar 29, 2006 6:44 am

I mean, a skinnier sort of Rider of Rowhan, and of course, I mean, now with his new long-hair and beard combo, which I see on the bbc website for them in connection with their currently running bbc2 radio series.

Because, my friends, he has longer hair now. Now, judging from the images of him that I can see on your worthy website repository here, it occurs to me that he has not always looked as such, BUT, ah, ahh.

you see, what I'M trying to say is that, given his current appearance.

(shown here, alongside a rider of rowhan! see!? IDENTICAL BUT SLIMMER:
Image Image


oh poo-poo.

ah. this is awkward...

a google image search that i was using to get the above image of bret (with, whose entire entertainment career history, i frankly admit i am not completely well-versed at the moment, being as yet still a rather new fan) i have come across the unexpected fact that bret actually was in lord of the rings, as a character called "figwit?" (did they make that poop up?) ahem.

so. well, i mean, he wasn't a rider of rowhan though, was he? (fricking lord of the elves dorks!)

um. anyway, look, he's got long hair now and a beard, and i heard their frodo song, and it occured to me that he kinda looks like a skinny little rider of rowhan.

so i thought i'd be mr. witty wiggles and mention it here. and get girls.

well. this has all gone absolutely horrible.

sigh.

i think i'm going to go cry.

(i guess, him being in the movie, explains the whole frodo song having been written by the band. i mean, he was probably a big fan. or something. wasn't that lord of the rings written by some guy in england? which i think is...different than new zealand. um. goldang ELF DORKS!)

so, anyway, what do you guys think? skinny Rider of Feng-Farfagarfablargh? or no?

(he also looks like a skinny eric bana, which rhymes with banner, get it? like bruce banner! but he's not from new zealand. australia actually. or maybe he is, i don't know.)

Oh god, that entire post just cracked me up.

Reminded me of:
Tim: That Kiwi-idiot persona you've got going on -- I like it. Where are you from? London based?
Bret: Uh -- New Zealand.
Tim: Oh -- uh! Okay! Well...

:rolls:

I actually knew of Bret as Figwit the elf before I knew of Bret as half of the conchords. And yeah, they wrote the song partly because of his involvement with it, and also partly because of his father's involvement with it (his dad played Elendil) and also partly because, hell, everyone in New Zealand (except Jermaine) was part of it.

But to answer your question, yes...he's definitely looking less elven these days.

Also: Figwit = Frodo Is Great, Who Is THAT? Because Bret appears all of two seconds in the film but because of the internet, became somewhat of a huge phenomenon.

Yes, as you may have guessed, I am one of those "elven dorks" except you know, not elven.

Yeah wot Amaria said. Figwit. Looks a lot like him :lol: Might want to take a peek at the Figwit thread here Fawad :lol: Reveals lots more about it.

A few here know of Bret from his LOTR days :shock:

Love reading your posts. Its good to see someone writing freely and letting it happen.

I never actually thought of Bret as looking like a Rider of Rohan. They are more ummm how shall I put it without enraging the Breterosexuals here, more manly :sofa: As in dirty, wild, angry, pretty fit (read muscular/bulky) or maybe thats just the chain mail armour :blush:

In conclusion I think he looks like Figwit. Or Figwit's father, Elendil. Or maybe even his brother, who sat to Elrond's right during the Counci of Elrond scene :hrm:

Does that help any?

but the facial hair and dark curly hair, you've got to account for that haven't you? i mean otherwise that's the bollocksing POINT OF IT?

oh well ok, how about a compromise. how's this:

Image Image

he's a skinny, wimpy eric bana! C'MON! they could be SISTERS!

and oh my, thank you. grwRRrrr. i like you, too. nudge nudge. (let's go adopt a child together.) oh wait, god, you're not 12 are you? dear lord, not again.

I was fine with the RoR comparisons (and can see the similarities), but if you insist on even thinking about comparing Bret to Lionel Richie, I might have to go all Kate on you. *bristles*

I have newfound sympathy for Kate. :lol:

and anyway, kate knows i love her. unless she's 12. in which case i do NOT love her at all in any way and want to make that COMPLETELY clear to ANY federal law enforcement officials that may be monitoring this communication.

and WHAT, oh, so it's ok to admit he looks like hunky australian or kiwi leading men, all bulky and buff and husky and glistening and olied in the moonlight, their firm buttocks taught and pensive like suddenly attentive ferrets at some alien and unfamiliar sound in the distance, but i can't point out the glaring and OBVIOUS similarities between him and a former 70s king of soul pop!? what, WHY? (why? what, WHY?)

CAUSE HE'S BLACK!!!???? hUH!?

No, because Bret's got more soul and funk in him than Lionel "I Ruined The Commodores" Richie has ever had in him. :lol:

Aged lady stepping in here...

1. Lionel Ritchie became a solo star in the 80's. When I am guessing you were barely alive.

2. Wrong. Wrong, wrong, wrong.

3. Wrong.

4. Eric Banna is cute.

:D

But at least Bret hasn't been associated with anything as monstrous as "Hello". *shudder*

But you know, Bret's a trained dancer. He might just be able to walk on ceilings and walls. Or maybe he uses his elven powers to do it. 8)
