FARGO—The Fargo Theatre got the hollywood treatment Wednesday night as Oscar nominee Sean Astin sat down for a Q&A session.

Hundreds showed up to discuss films and hear stories from the "Lord of the Rings" and "Rudy" star.

The silver-screen big shot discussed some of his favorite roles and stories from a lifetime in show business.

Astin also took some time to share some lessons he's picked up about showing others they're important.

"When you're with someone and when you're talking to someone, whether it's the president or a homeless person, you honor it. Honor that," said Sean Astin, Oscar nominated actor.

Part of the proceeds from tonight's event went to "HERO", an organization specializing in giving medical supplies to those with financial struggles.
