message for Brad: "You probably hear this a lot, but I think
you are a great actor. My favorite movies are One Flew Over the
Cuckoo's Nest, and The Two Towers. I also thought you were good
as Luther Lee Boggs in the X-Files."

message for Brad: "I'm so glad you ended up playing Grima Wormtongue!
You were the perfect choice! Because of that I went and watched a
bunch of your movies from the past. WOW! You are an unbelievably wonderful
actor! I love the way you make the viewer actually like the bad guy

message for Brad: "Hey, Brad! I've been a fan of yours since
I was about 17 or so, give or take a couple of years. I think you're
one of the best actors I've seen, and I for one respect you very much!
The Two Towers was the first movie I've seen with you in it on the
big screen! That was cool!
Well, I'm sure you've got better things to do than read my big book,
so lemme wrap this up.
Rock on, Brad!
Brad Fan Christina C., 24
message for Brad: " Hello Mr. Dourif! (How can this be said)?
You are brilliant! In every T.V movie that I have seen you in, I can't
help but think 'there isn't enough Brad content'. Your voice wraps
around the listener like a warm blanket and then smothers them when
the madness hits, the viewer is moved to tears, then laughter and
ultimately, horror...and compassion. You make dreams and nightmares
come alive in the characters you portray- In the book,LOTR, Grima
made me cry- In the movie, he did the same- It was obvious the amount
of thought that went in to Grima- no one else could have been him
except for you!
O.k... This message is now a novel...
Good luck in all of your endeavours-

O Mr. Dourif, you are mighty keen,
Some of the dudes you played were mighty mean,
Eowyn should've chosen Grima as her man to boff,
In Alien, Resurrection, you got your head half bitten off.
O Mr. Dourif, how you thrill with each tear that falls down your eye,
It makes me so happy, I don't feel my thighs inflate from eating pie,
You played a plastic punk named Charles Lee Ray, And when he shouts
'AH DE DOO WE DEM BALAAAAAAH' - ah! How that makes us sway.
O Mr. Dourif, you are oh so cool, like I said,
I noticed that in the Two Towers, Grima's wart moved around his
You were in a fuckload of movies, but not The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari,
I don't have enough money or resources to see all of them, and for
that, I am sorry.
O Mr. Dourif, you are mighty spiffy,
My stupid poem will be done in a jiffy,
Damn, this stupid poem is tacky,

I wanted to say to you Mr.Dourif. I could say the Normal things
all of your fans feel. That your a Great actor and all that. But
I Kinda feel thats redundant. I desided I wanted to tell you how

I wouldnt have been able to if it wasnt for you. Alot of my current

message for Brad: Hi... We met at RingCon in Washington, in February.
I was giggling fangirl #2 (the blonde in black that loved 'Horseplayer',
if you remember at all...) I wish that I would have had more time
to talk with you and thank you for all of your wonderful rolls. You
have an exquisite ability. I fall in love with all of your characters,
from campy to serious, I adore them all. Not only are you a talented
man, but you are also the most beautiful, gorgeous creature ever to
grace this planet. You have a kindness and an intensity that I've
never experienced in another human being, and it was lovely to just
be in your presence. Intelligence, too, is something that I admire
about you. Hearing you speak at RingCon, reading interviews with you...
and seeing you in your rolls. It's obvious that you invest so much
in your characters, your passion and brilliance shine through. You
are a god. I wish you all of the best in the future and look forward
to seeing more movies with you. Brad fan Shellie, 26
message for Brad: I think you're a great actor, and was amazed at
your portral of Grima. I've always believed him to be a sympathetic
character, but all of my friends thought I was daft... until they
saw the MOVIE version of Twin Towers. Now they at last understand!
Poor unloved Grima. Would he be such a bad guy if somebody would just
CARE about him? Brad fan Aubrey Hartman, 26
message for Brad: Hello Brad! I'm glad i finally get this chance to
get a message to you. I've been a fan of yours for many years. I just
wanted to let you know that i think your a wonderful actor. I loved
you as Lon Suder and Dr. Gediman! And how could i forget Jack Dante?
Great job! I wish you the best of luck in all that you do! Stay safe
and have a wonderful day! Love you always!

message for Brad: Mr. Dourif, I would like to express my deep gratitude
and thanks for everything you've brought to the movie/television industry.
You're a fabulous actor and I admire the spirit and energy you put
into your characters, most of whom I can really sympathize with (like
Grìma, for example. ^_^). I deeply admire you, and would like
to say that you're part of the reason I have gotten into acting. I
wish you the best in all you do and always look forward to your new

Brad fan Tara Jade Farthing, 15
message for Brad: Hi Brad. I'm a 15 year old gothic Grima Wormtongue
obsessed fan from England. I first saw you as Grima and instantly
fell in love. I can relate to Grima so much about the rejection and
bullying. I also have pictures of you as Grima and Gediman in Alien:
Ressurection plastered all over my walls. Anyway, are you coming to
england anytime soon as i really want to meet you. Along with Hugo
Weaving your top on my list of people to meet as i idolise you now.
I'm trying to collect all the films you have been in and can't wait
for Return of The King to come out! ^-^ Your such a great actor! And
you have such wild, pretty eyes! People think im mad for fancying
grima but i just say someone has to love him and that someone is me!
Anyway, i'll try and finish my esssay and leave you alone now. I hope
to speak to you someday.
Lots of love

message for Brad: Thanks for the great interpretation of Grima ! I've
read the whole book and how you've pictured him is really superb !
Brad fan Steve Jackson, 46,
message for Brad: Mr Dourif, I have seen your work and you have stood
out in my mind as an actor of exceptional depth and quality. It is
your work in the lotr movies that moves me to want to encourage you
on. Your presence on the set greatly adds to the believability of
the story line. The story line is believable by itself and a lesser
actor could be defined by the role but you and your abilities define
the role with artistic athourity. Thanks for showing us how it's done!
Brad fan Eryn, 16
message for Brad: Hello Mr. Dourif... Err, Brad. I was in the nieghborhood
and thought I'd drop by. Ha, anyways I wanted to say that you must
be very proud of your theatre career, skyrocketing and what-not. I
have to say that you are a very under-appreciated individual in the
movie business. But then again if you where under appreciated, you
wouldn't have vast sites dedicated to you, so... Nevermind. I just
wanted to say that you are a great actor. P.S. If you DO get a chance
to read this, I was wondering if you had any inspiring words for a
bright-eyed youngster to learn from. (So when I grow up to be famous,
I'll be able to tell everyone I got advice from the famous Brad Dourif.)
Heh, heh, that's all really I had to say.

character your playing. Your acting is intense an superb in many away,
a very rare gift an skill actors and actresses have these days. Thank

I wrote a poem for Brad. I hope the formatting holds. Miscast Brad Dourif
pretending to be Love—
completely against type
but strangely apt.
Something so terrifying and messy
about opening ourselves
to some other someone
that feels like death
if not dismemberment.

Message for Brad: Hello. I was wondering if Brad would write back
if i wrote to him.I did write to him and i actually sent a picture

and picture and if he liked it???That's if he got it.Nancy George

again.Oh by the way this website KICKS ASSSSS!!!!!KEEP UP THE AWESOME

Message for Brad: Hello, I've known lots of actors since my childhood.
They've all been very successful in my eyes. But Brad Dourif is different.
I feel this. I think I thought that because of his eyes, his face,
etc. But especially, his great acting performance in Heaven's Gate,
One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest, Child's Play 1-2-3-4, Graveyard Shift,
Color of Night,.. more and more.. Yours Sincerely, ANILCAN from Turkey

Message for Brad: Hi Brad I've never left a message for you before
but any way here it goes. I recently purchased all the Child's Play
DvDs last week and I thought they were kool and you acted the part
for Chucky very well. I'm not really a horror fan but when I sat down
to watch them I thought well this isn't so bad. I am a huge X Files
Fan and I also adore David Duchovny and I watched the episdoe "Beyond
the Sea" It was a brilliant episode and again very well played. I
would like to meet you in person but I live in Ireland and not many
stars from Hollywood go there. I read on the internet that you are
make the 5th part to chucky is that true? I hope it is I'll definitly
go to see it. To tell you the truth it was my big Brother who got
me watching your films his a HUGE horror fan. He's excellent at drawing
he drew a picture of Chucky with his knife i told him to enter it
in a competition he did and he got first prize YEAY. I hope you get
a chance to read this email and COULD! you send a reply THAT WOULD

Message for Brad: Hello, Mr. Dourif, sir. I don't exactly know what
to say that you haven't heard before... that seems to be my basic
problem when writing letters or these things to actors. I am probably
one of the least-probable people to be a huge fan of you, as I have
had a lifelong aversion of horror movies not unlike the ones you've
been in. But the moment you stepped out on the screen of The Two Towers
and said coolly "That is a lie," I knew you were something special.
I have always had a soft spot for Grima, so it's wonderful to find
him acted by someone so talented. I'm now in the midst of reading
Dune so I can get to the movie, and I'm a Trekkie, so it's great fun
to see you as Lon Sudar... in my opinion, that was a character they
killed off WAY too fast. I've been playing Myst III: Exile simply
because I saw your face in the box, and am loving it. And though I
haven't yet seen Cuckoo's Nest, I am looking eagerly forward to it...
and how I wish Billy Boyd's mistake i! n the Cast Commentary of Two
Towers was correct... when he and Dom were reading the credits and
your name went by, he said "He won an Oscar for One Flew Over The
Cuckoo's Nest." I wish it were so. I've seen a few clips and GOD did
you deserve it. But Peter Jackson's gone and squandered any chances
of you reclaiming your glory... first he cuts the Scouring, then he
cuts you entirely from the theatrical release of Return of the King.
I am royally pissed in your favor, just wanted to let you know. Well,
I think I've rambled on about nothing enough. Thank you for reading,
if you have. All the best and much love,
Brad fan Beth, 18
My deepest condolences on having your Grima scenes cut from the
third LOTR movie. we'll just have to wait patiently for the extended version i
guess. wonderful portrayal, by the way. glad they picked you in the end
