Not just any two Hobbits either- Dominic Monaghan and Billy Boyd! The pair of multi-talented actors wandered into the Scum and Villainy Cantina in Hollywood during the wretched hive’s official “Star Wars” night festivities. As you can imagine, there was some singing involved, and also some pints!
You can watch a snippet of their visit on Scum and Villainy’s Facebook page here:
Boyd and Monaghan are true life pals, and it’s always wonderful to see them together. I’ve personally had the pleasure of interviewing both of them several times. Joyous, thoughtful, and extremely intelligent, these aren’t your everyday average Hobbits out for a night on the town.
We’re also very pleased to share the news that they’re also launching a new podcast called “The Friendship Onion,” producer Kast Media.
“I am contractually obliged to make a glowing comment here in regards to the podcast Billy and I are making together. This is proving difficult as Billy has abducted me and is holding me for ransom to the price of 44 bananas. Please, send bananas,” said Monaghan.
“Dom took a little persuading, it’s true, but this podcast is going to rock. He is such a joker, you have to love Dom. Ha….but you also have to love bananas, so….yes, send bananas,” said Boyd.
“We couldn’t be more excited to bring the comedic genius of this duo to podcasting. Fans were introduced to the quick wit and fun banter of this pairing through The Lord of the Rings films, but this podcast will demonstrate how far beyond that origins story their boundless energy and interest stretches. We can’t wait to start peeling back the layers of this friendship onion,” added Colin Thomson, CEO of Kast Media.
“The Friendship Onion” launches on May 18th, 2021.
