Welcome to Lee Pace Network, your most up-to-date fansite resource on the talented actor. Lee is best known for his role as the lovable piemaker, Ned, in "Pushing Daisies". He can also be seen as Garrett in the "Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2" and Thranduil in "the Hobbit". Enjoy your stay.
I’d like to apologize for not being here lately. Unfortunately I’ve been busy with my personal life and mostly, university work. This is my final year, so you can imagine how hectic it can be. I still follow Lee’s work (Halt and Catch Fire Season 1 is now on DVD and the 2nd season premiered last week! You all know that, right?) and work for the site whenever I have some free time. I’m screencapturing his newest projects, following the events and collecting all kinds of new material that I want to add soon. First I need to get a new laptop though, my old one crashed. You can expect more updates in a month, once my finals are over. I’m really sorry.
Billy Boyd, who portrayed loyal hobbit Pippin in the Lord of the Rings trilogy, collaborated with Jackson, Fran Walsh, and Philippa Boyens to write “The Last Goodbye,” the song that will play over the credits when The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies opens on December 17.
The official music video includes Boyd’s performance, mixed with scenes from Lord of the Rings and Hobbit, and lovely behind-the-scenes footage. Take a look.
Boyd told EW: “After seeing the film, I went to my room and I started to put down some ideas, and along with Fran and Philippa, we started to sculpt the song we thought the movie needed,” he says. “A lot of ideas took us to dead ends or we found the tone wasn’t just right. I think we discovered very quickly this wasn’t just a song to end The Battle of the Five Armies—it was a song to say goodbye to Middle-earth.”
The soundtrack for the final Hobbit film arrives on December 9, and can already be pre-ordered from iTunes and Amazon.
World premiere of The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies is quickly approaching. Actors attending have been revealed today by Be The Red Carpet, and what a lineup this is!

Guardians of the Galaxy Blu-ray edition will be out December 6, but BuzzFeed has an exclusive outtake from the movie. We probably all agree that one of the funniest scenes in film was when Peter Quill (Chris Pratt) distracts villain Ronan the Accuser (Lee Pace) from destroying an entire planet by singing from and dancing to The Five Stairsteps’ “O-o-h Child.” What we didn’t know when watching is that while trying to film that, the cast pulled off a dance competition of their own.
James Gunn, the director of the film, commented on his official facebook page: “To be clear, this wasn’t improv that was meant to be part of the film – it was actually a joke on Dave Bautista (Batista), where I got Chris, Lee Pace, and Zoe together and decided to turn the tables on the script. Dave was as surprised as the crowd when Ronan suddenly took up Quill on his offer of a dance off. When Dave is dancing he’s just being a good sport. In the outtakes, you can see the whole crowd all dancing along. It was one of my favorite moments on set.”
Pratt didn’t work with a choreographer on the scene, nor did the script really specify how exactly he was supposed to be dancing. “But I did have a pretty good sense of the era from which I would be drawing dance moves, given that Quill draws all of his pop-culture references from a certain time frame of basically 1985 and earlier,” he told BuzzFeed.
AMC stars from Halt and Catch Fire, Mad Men, Hell on Wheels, Better Call Saul and The Walking Dead gathered some days ago at the Hollywood Foreign Press Association’s holiday press reception. I added two photos from the event to our gallery.
Lee Pace will appear in an upcoming episode of The Mindy Project‘s third season, Digital Spy reports. He’ll play a successful tech entrepreneur and Dr Mindy Lahiri’s first sexual partner. The show creator Mindy Kaling shared her excitement on Twitter:
So excited that LEE PACE is coming to #TheMindyProject! We play two losers who lost our virginities to each other. Happy Friday!
Lee accepted Sally Twellman’s challenge to raise money and awarness for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). ALS affects the brain and the spinal cord. Motor neurons degenerate and die which makes it increasingly difficult to move muscles. There is currently no cure. The viral sensation was launched around a month ago by Pete Frates, 29, a former Boston College baseball captain. He has lived with ALS since 2012.
When challenged by a friend or colleague, you have 24 hours to either donate $100 to the cause or post a video showing yourself dumping a bucket of ice water on your head to get out of donating. Then, in turn, you challenge three others. As of Saturday, August 23, The ALS Association has received $62.5 million in donations compared to $2.4 million during the same time period last year (July 29 to August 23).
AMC has ordered a second season of the drama Halt and Catch Fire for 2015. The series, about the rise of the PC era in the early 1980s, was not a breakout, opening with soft 1.2 million viewers and a 0.34 demo rating, but attracted what the network said was a committed core audience. The renewal is not about what the series has done but about what AMC brass think it could become. “This is a show about invention, experimentation, and the inherent risks in trying to break new ground – themes that really resonate with us as a network and attracted a passionate audience,” said Charlie Collier, AMC president. “We have a history of demonstrating patience through the early seasons of new shows, betting on talent and building audience over time. We see that opportunity here and look forward to a second season of ‘Halt and Catch Fire’ from creators Chris Cantwell and Chris Rogers, and showrunner Jonathan Lisco.” AMC also points to Nielsen data showing that Halt and Catch Fire was one of the most upscale dramas on ad-supported television, #3 among adults 18-49, behind Mad Men and The Good Wife.
