Strong, Silent Type Buzzwatch

Figwit’s appearance in The Lord of the Rings was a mere three seconds—but the elf made an impression. He’s gone from being a nameless extra (Figwit is an acronym for “Frodo Is Grea…Who Is That?”) to sparking a club, Community of the Worshippers of Mr Mysterious Elf! [communities.msn.com/MrMysterious Elf], and inciting pleas for merchandise (Figwit Needs an Action Figure [petitiononline.com/ figwit]). Actor Bret McKenzie even suggests LOTR IV: Figwit’s Journey. Hey, Bret, with great power comes great responsibility.
