Well it worked out with Stuart Townsend leaving, and recasting after a pilot is not uncommon.

At least we knew who Stuart Townsend was portraying!

Ditto for Rob Kazinsky in The Hobbit films.

This doesn't really have any really significance to me, but it might mean something to someone.

Three interesting facts in one sentence:
The Lord of the Rings‘ first eight-episode season is expected to launch on Prime Video this year, and a second has already been ordered.
1. 8 Eps per season (Same as GoT)
2. Launching this year (Was expected, but this is the first confirmation I've seen)
3. Second season already ordered. (Before audience reaction. Optimistic approach, they must be confident)

Had no idea it was releasing this early! I'm cautiously optimistic. Any sign of when we'll be getting a trailer?

I'm not surprised that a second season was 'ordered' as I read that it was costing something like a half a billion dollars for the 1st season. I believe that counts the 250 million for just the rights. Nonetheless, that is a staggering amount of money for a TV show.
