Sean Astin at the Baghdad

Sean Astin, AKA Mikey, AKA Rudy AKA Frodo's life partner, made an appearance at the Baghdad Theater last night. He was there to promote his new autobiography on Lord of the Rings and a childhood spent in Hollywood.

Due to scheduling conflicts, he only spoke for ten minutes, three of which were spent singing "Can't Help Falling in Love" for reasons that probably have a lot to do with jetlag. Astin told the audience he's been bouncing back and forth between the US and New Zealand over the past few weeks, perpetually caught between filming a mini-series and finishing up a book tour. Before heading to the lobby to sign copies, he answered a few questions.

#1. Does George W. Bush have the One Ring?

He ducked this one.

#2. What was your favorite scene from the films?

When the elves head into Helm's Deep.

#3. What's up with Goonies 2?

He didn't know but confirmed he'll show up if it ever goes into production.

I've been holding out for a sequel to the Goonies since rumors started popping up on the internet back in 1999. At this point, Fletch Won and Indiana Jones IV probably have a better chance at hitting the big screen. Nevertheless, I'll keep an online candle burning. The Wizard of Oz got a sequel but it took 46 years, making the Guinness Book of World records for longest span of time between an original film and its sequel. Will Goonies 2 beat it?




Who knows? Anyway, here's a incredibly blurred picture from last night's event. This is either a shot of Astin or one of those quirky McMenamins murals. I can't tell either.
