Where do you go after you've been there and back again?

Sean Astin, erstwhile hobbit and son of Patty Duke, is slated to join the cast of 24 this fall. For those who can't wait, Astin's book There And Back Again: An Actor's Tale gives a gritty and honest (too honest?) look into life on the ground during the making of the Lord of the Rings movies.


Sean Astin is also the son of John Astin from the Addams Family original TV series.

Interesting that being "too honest" must run in the family. Sean recently complained that his mom's new book (Patti Duke Astin) hurt the family and was "self-serving." I guess they all have something to get off their chests...
