  • I think Nick Offerman would be a great Gimli, I can very much imagine it. However, John Rhys Davies was a perfect choice to be honest, no offense Nick but mayhaps you'll get the chance in the future. I sense a remake is coming within 5 years.

  • Just wanted to point out that "Old Ironsides" aka the USS Constitution was a frigate from the War of 1812, not the Civil War. It was made of American Oak, a very tough wood but also constructed very heavily to dominate larger ships. Its initial duty was to combat piracy off the Barbary coast. Its hull was 21 inches thick and heavily reinforced to support heavy guns, heavier than virtually any frigate in the world at the time and more of them. Its hull did indeed repel cannon balls and it could also dish out tremendous punishment to any warship foolish enough to tangle with her.
