Despite filming it a full week ago, Lee Pace’s episode of “The Rachael Ray Show” finally aired yesterday. There doesn’t appear to be a full clip of his segment online (yet), but the official Rachael Ray site has uploaded a small portion of Lee’s interview, which you can view by clicking on the image above (there’s no embed available). In the clip, he talks about his wild Comic Con memory from earlier this year, when he and Hobbit co-star Andy Serkis woke up unsuspecting fans at 2-3am to greet them and take pictures. If the full interview pops up, I’ll edit this post with a new link.
On Monday (December 15th), Lee Pace stopped by “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” to promote his latest movie, The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies. During the (admittedly short) interview, he talked extensively of his parents’ cameo in the final Hobbit movie — and how, ultimately, they were taken out of the final cut. (Here’s to seeing them as Laketown extras in the extended edition!) You can watch a clip of his appearance on Kimmel’s show above or, if you’re able to verify your TV provider, the full episode is here.
Edit: You can now watch the full interview with Lee on Vimeo.
Nearly a week ago, on December 11th, Lee Pace joined Richard Armitage for their second joint Q&A of the day — this one, following an IMAX screening in New York. Together, they talked about their movie The Hobbit: The Battle of The Five Armies (now in theaters). Los Angeles Times was there, both hosting the event as part of their “Hero Complex” screening series and even filming it for those fans unable to attend. Three videos have been released, although the last of the three is currently offline. Because I’m unable to embed the videos, you’ll have to go directly to LA Times’ website:
Earlier this evening (December 11th), Lee Pace paired up with Richard Armitage for the first of two Q&As. As part of Apple’s “Meet the Actors” series, Lee and Richard took moderator and fan questions about their upcoming film, The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies, at the NYC SoHo Apple Store. There are photos from the Q&A in the gallery, and you can also download a free podcast and/or video from the iTunes Store right here. (If you’re unable to access the store, the video can be viewed on YouTube.)
Lee Pace was on “The TODAY Show” this morning, December 11th, to help promote the upcoming US release of The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies. He was alone among the Hobbit cast but fared well handling the three-person panel. He talked of his character, Thranduil, and the horse he rode named Moose that was later transformed into an elk in the movie. At three-minutes long, it’s a short interview, but worth checking out.
Also, for those looking for Lee’s interview on “The View” today: sadly, it did not happen. Luke Evans had dropped out due to illness, then Orlando Bloom, but both Lee and Richard Armitage were no-shows this morning. No worries, though; Lee booked an appearance with MTV’s Joshua Horowitz instead, so we can look forward to another great interview with him and Josh.
This evening (December 9th), Lee Pace attended the Los Angeles premiere for The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies. (I believe this is the last of the worldwide premiers for BOFA, sadly, with screening events yet to come.) Although he attended the event alone, co-star and friend Evangeline Lilly – who plays fellow elf Tauriel in the film – mentioned to @Hollywood that she and Lee got ready at her hotel room while listening to The Beatles on vinyl.
The premiere was a big one, with many cast members (and crew) in attendance. Among them: Richard Armitage, Elijah Wood, Andy Serkis, Orlando Bloom, Billy Boyd, Graham McTavish, Dean O’Gorman, composer Howard Shore, and director Peter Jackson. Jack Black, James Cameron, and Marcia Gay Harden were also at the premiere.
You can view many, many photos of Lee from the premiere in the gallery. (There are also some after-party pictures here.) Click below for some videos/interviews of Lee from the black carpet.
In Los Angeles this morning (December 8th), visionary director Peter Jackson was awarded with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. The ceremony included Andy Serkis – best known for his iconic Gollum performances in Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit – who helped introduce Jackson.
Lee Pace was in attendance along with his Hobbit co-stars Richard Armitage (whom he sat next to), Orlando Bloom, Elijah Wood, and Evangeline Lilly. Pictures from the event – including the whole cast group posing next to Jackson’s newly unveiled star – have been added to the gallery.
Last night (December 6th), Lee Pace attended the Canadian premiere of The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies in Toronto. He was joined by director Peter Jackson and writer/producer Philippa Boyens. Pictures from the red carpet have been added to the gallery, and you can also find interviews from the press line below. (There’s only one currently, but I’ll add more as they roll in.)
While Lee Pace was in London, he did multiple interviews alongside his Hobbit: Battle of the Five Armies co-stars, Evangeline Lilly and Orlando Bloom, as part of a press junket. This appears to have lasted a few days and also included the press conference on the 2nd, which I’ve already posted about. I’ve since gathered all the London interviews I could find with the three actors, which you can view below. (I’ll continue updating if any more roll in.)
The London press conference for The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies occurred yesterday, December 2nd, and featured a fair chunk of the huge film cast. Among Lee Pace, others in attendance were Andy Serkis, Orlando Bloom, Evangeline Lilly, Richard Armitage, director Peter Jackson, Martin Freeman, Ian McKellen, writer/producer Philippa Boyens, Luke Evans, Ryan Gage, and Billy Boyd.
You can view the full press conference in the video above. (Sadly, I haven’t been able to procure any official photos from the event. Will update if I do!) Lee Pace doesn’t talk much in it – Peter Jackson has the mic the majority of the time – but he does chime in occasionally. The various points of views from the cast may be of interest for Hobbit fans nonetheless.
