As the host of the television after-school dance program “American Bandstand” he made an ideal surrogate chaperone: a wholesome, polite, honorary adolescent. Although he was 27 when the program was first broadcast nationally on Aug. 5, 1957, he could have passed for 17. At the time he seemed the sort of mild-mannered superannuated boy who might once have served on the school safety patrol and been elected class treasurer.

For those of you unfortunate folk who do not know The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey is one of two films currently being shot that is based off of J.R.R. Tolkein‘s world renowned novel entitled The Hobbit which takes place in the same world (Middle-Earth) as the academy award winning Lord of the Rings Trilogy.

He is controversial.
People can’t stop talking about him.
He just wins, most of the time. And works hard.
No, not really, actually — he works very very very very hard. Incredibly hard.
Yet, he “don’t get no respect” from some quarters — and he certainly doesn’t care whether he does. For he believes he is doing good work.
