Sometimes it's a particularly shiny treasure that sets a man down a very bad path. Take Gollum, for instance -- a former Hobbit so smitten with a gold ring that he became a hideous, withered creature, obsessed with his "precious." Gollum can be creepily quiet and calm, but behind that veneer and those big eyes he's manipulative and calculating, concerned only with keeping the treasure in his grasp. Can't wait to see this character reprised for 'The Hobbit' trilogy.
