Personally I'd love to play Arwen or Eowyn..

But

If I were male I'd play either Legolas or Gollum/Smeagol...

What about you?

I'd love to play Aragorn...and that's nothing to do with getting Liv Tyler, I promise!

Evil characters are always so much more fun to play; they tend to be more multi-dimensional.

Thus, I would like to play Saruman, Gríma or Smeagol. A good second best would be Frodo or Pippin.

I would want to play Aragorn. If they forced me to be a girl, Eowyn. At least I could dress up as a guy....*sigh*
For the record, I am straight as a board, I just dont like skirts much.

That's debatable, Bungo.

As much as I hate to be unoriginal, I would love to play Eowyn, but Galadrial would come in a close second.

Midus Unknown, they don't pick actors on the basis of accuracy with a bow. A modicum of acting ability is, unfortunately for you, also a prerequisite.

Mostly I feel like a Hobbit so I'd like to play one. But as I am a female and would like to play a female I might fight with Tifa_Avalanche about a new role of Frodo's girlfriend or take the role of Rosie. Wow, how many children would I have to expect? Too many, I guess...

I'de have to say a human, Sméagol would be very interesting though.
If i could play anyone from LotR thinking logically i'de say one of the riders of rohan. possibly Éomer.

Interesting description on why to play legolas. But when acting you kinda don't need to actually be able to shoot a bow. It's more about whether you can act :)

I think the good characters are multidimensional as well.

So, with that said, I would choose Gandalf. Wise with age, yet tireless in his determination.
