The hero Sean Connery (for turning down the LOTR movie)

I just recently found out that Sean Connery turned down the roll of Gandalf in the LOTR franchise because of the poor script. Stating that he read the book and didn’t understand how they made a script as bad as this. 
This really made me like Sean Connery even more, but it puzzled me that I never read anything else about this. The funny thing is, if you Google this topic, you will only find articles on how stupid Sean Connery is for turning down the roll and not understand the script. Now that’s a nice way of twisting the facts. A clearer interpretation would be: Peter Jackson is turning a great book into an atrocity and I want nothing to do with it.

If you’re in Los Angeles tonight, check out the opening of Doug Aitken’s latest solo exhibition, Still Life, at Regen Projects. 

Taking its name from the traditional concept of nature morte, Aitken’s Still Life presents an immersive environment where place and time dissolves, where the individual exists adrift in an electrically charged space. Wending their way through the gallery, viewers are confronted with a series of signs and symbols that at first glance appear familiar but upon closer inspection reveal their foreign nature. A series of internally illuminated light box sculptures hover on the gallery walls. Combining text and image into physical form, they each represent the crystallization of an idea captured from the frenetic modern landscape.

The opening reception is tonight, Saturday, September 6 at 6-8pm and the show will be on view through October 11.
