Andy Serkis to read The Hobbit nonstop to raise money for the NHS

Andy Serkis will read The Hobbit from start to finish with no breaks, in a session set to last for around 12 hours - in aid of charity.

NHS Charities and Best Beginnings will each receive money raised from the performance, split between the two equally.

Serkis said: “So many of us are struggling in isolation during the lockdown. While times are tough, I want to take you on one of the greatest fantasy adventures ever written, a 12-hour armchair marathon across Middle-earth, while raising money for two amazing charities which are doing extraordinary work right now to help those most in need.”

The livestream will start at 10am on Friday. You will be able to find the link posted on the GoFundMe page.


Cute I guess, but let's hope he donated some of those LOTR cheques too...

anyway, who here has been marathoning LOTR / The Hobbbit during quarantine?
