Dominic Monaghan - Dominic Monaghan Keen To Front Desert Island Adventure Show

LORD OF THE RINGS star Dominic Monaghan has secret dreams of becoming the next great TV survival expert.

The actor recently finished shooting a new creepy wildlife show, called Dom's Wild Things, and now he's ready for another televised desert island adventure.

But, unlike his time on Lost, this time he really will be stranded.

He tells Wenn, "I'm camping out in the forest and sleeping in the desert in my new show, but I'd be more than happy to do a desert island show where somebody drops me on an island in the middle of nowhere and sees how I do... That might be something that I do at some point.

"I certainly won't die of boredom and I don't need a lot of creature comforts. I can be entertained just looking at the ocean."

Dominic Monaghan Not Backing Down In Matthew Fox Feud 3330072 News

Defiant Dominic Monaghan is refusing to back down from remarks he made about former Lost co-star Matthew Fox in a series of angry tweets earlier this year (12) - even though the actor insists the allegations were all wrong.

The actor took aim at Fox in May (12) after a female fan asked him to persuade Fox to join Twitter, so she could tweet him. Monaghan fired off a tweet claiming his former co-star "beats women".

When the fan, named Becca, responded to his comments, writing, "What about all those good times you had together?", Monaghan shot back, "How do you know we ever did? you don't know either of us.he beats women.not isolated incidents.often."

And when followers suggested Monaghan was stumbling into legal hot water with his claims, he shot back, "It's very difficult to sue someone for speaking the truth."

Fox, who hit headlines last year (11) when he was accused of allegedly lashing out at a female bus driver, refused to be drawn into a war of words at the time, but now he has spoken out about his former castmate's comments.

He tells Men's Fitness magazine, "It's been a long, trying year of sitting on my hands on a lot of negative s**t said about me, when they're the furthest things from who I am.

"In the 46 years I've been breathing on this planet, I have never hit a woman before. Never have, never will. I think there's still gonna be a lot of people out there who'll think it's true no matter what. The Cleveland situation, the Monaghan situation - was a pile of bulls**t, and I'm not gonna waste too much breath on that."

Supporting Fox's remarks, Heather Boorman - the bus driver who accused the actor of assaulting her as he tried to board a party bus in Cleveland, Ohio - has since dropped her lawsuit, but Monaghan is refusing to back down from his original tweets.

He tells Wenn, "Some people were a little bewildered about why I would say it, but I know why I said it. I've not made a name for myself for talking s**t about people; it's not something that I do.

"My job as an actor is to entertain people but if I want to say something I will say it. I don't need to qualify those statements."

Dominic Monaghan & Billy Boyd Writing Movie Comedy 3323855 News

LORD OF THE RINGS stars Billy Boyd and Dominic Monaghan are putting the finishing touches on a film comedy they have been writing since becoming best friends on the set of the movie trilogy a decade ago.

The two Brits discovered they had a similar sense of humour on the New Zealand set of Peter Jackson's epic and producer Barry Osbourne was so impressed with the friends' film ideas he offered to help fund their debut as screenwriters.

The busy pair have reunited for writing sessions whenever their schedules permit and Monaghan tells Wenn that one recent creative spurt has given them both the confidence to take their project back to Osbourne.

He says, "Billy just stayed with me for the last few weeks. He and I have been writing a script for a long time, since we spent the best part of nine months in a tree together making Lord of the Rings. We found each other very funny and we wanted to work together.

"The producer of Lord of the Rings, Barry Osbourne said to us, 'You guys should come up with an idea for a script and I'll produce it.' We both love quality comedy, like Life of Brian and Dumb & Dumber and Spinal Tap and Being There and Pink Panther and we're circling around a couple of things right now that we've co-written with some actors.

"Hopefully, in the next six months or so, we'll have something real."

And Monaghan reveals Boyd isn't the only lifelong friend he made while shooting the Lord of the Rings trilogy - he often hangs out with Elijah Wood and his other co-stars.

He adds, "I see Viggo (Mortensen) whenever I can and Orlando (Bloom) and Ian MCKellen and Pete Jackson. We've all remained really close friends."
