AI Creates The Perfect ’90s Lord of the Rings Movie Trailer & Cast

It’s always anybody’s guess who would have been the best actor to play a role in a classic movie, especially if you move it to another era of Hollywood history. That said, stryder HD’s ’90s parody does a gosh-darn entertaining job with a reworked “Lord of the Rings” cast. Take Gimli, for instance, who appears as a younger Brendan Gleeson channeling his “Braveheart” bravado. Patrick Swayze also brings the smoldering swagger of an Elvish princeling through Gimli’s bestie Legolas while Mel Gibson and Jennifer Connelly step into the shoes of Gondor’s first couple, Aragorn and Arwen.

As far as supernatural power-players go, we get Sean Connery as Gandalf (Connery refused the role in Jackson’s “Lord of the Rings” in real life). Richard Harris makes the Wizarding leap from Hogwarts to Middle-earth to portray Saruman. Michell Pfeiffer and Tom Cruise take up the roles of Galadriel and Celeborn in the Golden Wood and the one and only Jeremy Irons shows up as the Dark Lord himself (as Sauron without the armor).

Even amongst the Little People, the perfect casting continues. Michael J. Fox plays Bilbo, Jake Gyllenhaal is Frodo, and Jack Black plays the gardener-turned-adventurer Sam. Macaulay Culkin channels the mischievous Pippin and Leonardo Dicaprio is the level-headed Merry. Finally, we get the Hobbit-adjacent Gollum played by Jacki Earl Haley — a man who is no stranger to a tortured character. Our only real criticism with this half-sized cast? Jack Black sports some very non-Hobbity facial hair.
