LOTR Movies : Characters & Actors
There are a few purposes served with these collections of images. One is to sort out names of various minor characters in the movie. The other is to identify the bit players and extras who portrayed them and to identify cameos made by a variety of people normally working behind the scenes of the movie. Finally, to display various collections of images involving more major roles.
Prologue - Ringbearers
Most of these are the main players in the Last Alliance but there is one Elf extras we have some information on. Visit either:

Hobbits - FOTR & ROTK
Some of these are well known. A few are less well known. And some are uncertain.
These are the characters from Bree that have a name and/or the actor/extra can be identified.
The Council of Elrond
Of course we all know who the primary players here are: Elrond and those who would go on to make up the Fellowship of the Ring. But do you know the names of the Dwarves next to Gimli? Or the Elf next to Aragorn? Visit either:
I found a group of Ent images at TheOneRing.net - source unknown - that seem to be production stills of some sort. These were labeled as different types of trees. I've also added Decipher CCG cards that identify any Ent by a name.
Corsairs of Umbar
Five different people associated with production of the movies made cameo appearances as Corsairs of Umbar in a ROTK extended scene. I can also identify one actor.
Staff & Crew Cameos
Production staff and crew connected with the LOTR films that found their way in front of the camera for a moment or two.
All in the Family
Brothers, sisters, fathers, sons, uncles... lots of relatives of cast and crew made it into the movies.
Cast Studio Stills
I grabbed the only copy my local Barnes and Noble had of the Empire magazine that contained large, photo quality cast studio stills. Then I grabbed digital copies when I ran across them. The rest in this bunch were collected from various sources at various times.
