Dominic Monaghan, the actor who played the hobbit Merry in Lord of the Rings, says that David Bowie tried out for a role in the franchise. Speaking with Huffington Post, Monaghan says he saw Bowie at the casting office. “I was at the Hubbard’s, which is a pretty notorious casting agency office in London, doing an audition for Lord of the Rings,” he began. “As I was reading a magazine waiting, David Bowie came in and signed his little list and went in. And I’m assuming he read for Gandalf. I can’t think of anything else he would’ve read for. He may have read for something else, but I’m a huge David Bowie fan, and I was lucky enough to know his son now so just seeing him in person was pretty special to me.” Bowie starred in the 1986 fantasy film Labyrinth as Jareth the Goblin King, and according to the Hollywood Reporter, the film may be getting a sequel.
