The Lord of the Rings cast reunite, show off their matching tattoos, and raise over $47K for charity

The Lord of the Rings cast reunited for charity and discussed the legacy of their hit trilogy on Josh Gad’s Reunited Apart webseries, which started streaming Sunday.

The 50-minute special – technically taped ‘a week ago’ – was the first time fans got to see this much of the talented ensemble back together since 2003.

To break the ice, the 39-year-old Grammy winner asked that the members of the fellowship unveil their matching tattoos of the word ‘nine’ in Elvish.

Sir Ian McKellan – who played the wizard Gandalf – joked: ‘When I read this upside down, of course, it spells Gucci.’

At that, Orlando Bloom – who played the elf Legolas – flexed his arm and clapped back: ‘Ignore that bicep, Dom.’

Monaghan wisecracked: ‘Yes, holding his gland at one point, Ian.’
