Good choice; Gollum takes over when Frodo fails.

Radagast.
Radagast is an interesting character, but if I'm recalling correctly, he doesn't actually make an appearance in the books. Gandalf speaks of him on one or two occasions, but that's about it. No one else ever meets or interacts with him. In other words, you've just chosen a silent role, my friend.

(On a side note, I'm convinced he's not half as kooky as Peter Jackson made him.)
His only mention is in Beorn’s house, when Gandalf says he’s “not a bad fellow as wizards go.” The whole Radagast/Necromancer thing is hardly mentioned in the book. The movies are great, though.
2 Timothy 1:7. Look it up.
Due to life, I am unable to do LV much. Please be patient with delayed projects.

Gandald also speaks of him in Fellowship, at the Council of Elrond. The appendices may have more info about him and his doings. I'm not sure.

Radagast.
Actually, I was reading over The Lord of the Rings (for the fifth time), and Radagast does have a very small speaking role in the Fellowship of the Ring. So he is still an option.

I'll record it now and have my executor provide it at the appropriate time. I hope you all will still be able to open mp3 files.
What? What's that? Why are you shouting?
