Earlier today, Lee Pace was involved in another Twitter-based Q&A — this time, to help promote The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies. He took control of @TheHobbitMovie and answered various fan questions – both about himself and his character, Thranduil – to hilarious degrees. (Anyone else loving Lee on social media?) He even posted a few selfies, including one of… his socks. You can read a full transcript of the Q&A below:

@leepace is here and ready to answer your questions! #AskThranduil https://pbs.twimg.com/media/B38jmLmCcAAxnxd.jpg:large

@waxn28 In the whole Hobbit trilogy, who is your favourite villain & why?
@leepace
Very good question. Smaug because he’s the biggest and the baddest.

@pie_makerx is pie included in your diet?
@leepace
I love pie. Especially apple pie.

@_avidchyme If you could play any other character in The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, who would you be?
@leepace
I would be one of the ringwraiths.

@laurenoola on a scale of 1 to Thranduil how sassy are you in real life? ;-)
@leepace
Define sassy… #AskThranduil #TheHobbit

Kristina

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.

Lee Pace recently spoke to Entertainment Weekly, giving answers to their traditional interview segment: the Pop Culture Personality Test. This is usually a fun segment, where questions like “what song do you sing in the shower?” are asked. In Lee’s case, he answered the following: his first celebrity crush (he even wrote a letter!), how he planned his life growing up, the first album he was obsessed with, and what sex scene he’s rewound (a lot).

Complex: Lee Pace is Too Busy for Games

Aug 4
Kristina

There is a new interview featuring Lee Pace, courtesy of Complex. While the main subject revolves mostly around AMC’s “Halt And Catch Fire” – what with the season one finale airing Sunday night – there’s also discussion of a few other projects. Namely, Lee once again talks about acting as Joe Macmillan versus a character like Ronan (as soon in Marvel’s Guardians Of The Galaxy). Check out an excerpt below:

Is it fun for you to go back and forth from blockbuster like Guardians to a show where you’re doing a lot of character-based work?
I feel very fortunate to have that, very, very lucky because just for that reason. The characters are so different, the approach for the characters is so different. It’s not just about different people, it’s about a different way of working that I find very interesting, that I think I’ve had the good fortune to do. So, yeah, I love it!

Do you tend to gravitate toward characters you can see yourself in, or that are totally removed from how you think of yourself? Did you identify with Joe at all?
Like I said, it’s different ways of working. I never expected Joe to be, in a way, as close to me as he turned out to be, you know what I mean? When I read the beginning stuff, when I read the pilot and stuff, I didn’t think he was like me at all. But when I watched it back, when I watched what we had shot, I did feel like, “Oh, I understand that. I understand trying to walk into a new situation, starting a new endeavor, and maybe trying to be someone that you’re not. I get that.” I understand having a hard time connecting with someone that you care about deeply, and possibly losing them, and these are all things that Joe is going through.

I’m sorry, I kind of veered off away from your question, but I kind of do think… I don’t know, I like them both. They’re just different, very different. I’m definitely surprised at how much like me he is, and especially in this last episode. I mean I’m actor [laughs]; other characters, like Ronan, are about being something that’s not even human. But with a character like Joe, it’s a real study in humanity, and authenticity, and that’s the opportunity and that’s the important part, is to allow that authenticity in.

Check out the video above.
