Speaking of Celebrities...

Here's a bit of trivia. Christopher Lee (Count Dooku, Saruman) volunteered to fight for Finland during the Winter War with Russia in 1939. He was only there a couple of weeks, though, and never saw action. He did, however, join the RAF later and was involved in military intelligence--including some stuff that is still classified to this day.

He was the only memeber of the Lord of the Rings cast to have personally met J.R.R. Tolkien.
