In a new interview, actor Andy Serkis reveals he nearly turned down the role of Gollum in 'The Lord of the Rings' trilogy. While talking with The Guardian, Serkis explained, "When I started doing 'Lord of the Rings', I liked the gamble. Originally, I heard it was going to be like doing a voice for a digital character, and I wasn't interested, but then I met Peter Jackson and he said, 'We want an actor to play the role, be on set and make decisions for that character'." Serkis, who has also played chimpanzee Caesar in the 'Planet of the Apes' trilogy, added, "That was the epiphany because it was like: you can now play anything."
