Dominic Monaghan

  1. Elijah Wood, The Lord of the Rings trilogy, 2001-2003.
  2. Josh Holloway, Lost, TV, 2004-10.  Auditioned for Sawyer – and became the washed-up rock musician Charlie, originally conceived as a 45-year-old rocker. 
  3. DeRay Davis, The Fog, 2004. Several young USA TV stars – including Monaghan, John Cho, Jon Heder Eric Christian Olsen, Kenan Thompson, Wilmer Valderrama – were seen for Brett Spooner. Until Davis’s test conquered the producers. And, suddenly, Spooner was black.  John Carpenter’s 1979 original had a small budget, some imagination and a strong cast, recalled UK critic Philip French. “The new version has a sizeable budget, no imagination and a cast of nonentities.”
