If I were Sir Ian, I ask to keep the costume so I could randomly wear it while out doing mundane things. Like everyone once in a while going grocery shopping dressed as Gandalf and stop just before the automatic doors to make some elaborate gesture with the staff before tripping the motion sensor.

Wayne 985: Weird to think Sean Connery was initially offered the role of Gandalf. I love Connery, but I'm so glad McKellen got the part instead. He's nothing short of sublime.

Same applies for his role as Magneto. Another actor was offered the part first, but had to turn it down due to a scheduling conflict. We nearly didn't have him in these movies.


Connery would have been awful.

"You shall not pash! YOU... SHALL NOT PASH!"
"Pity? It wazsh pity that shtayed hishz hand."

I will not say, "Do not weep" for not all tears are evil.

that bosnian sniper: I have to say that Ian McKellen as Gandalf was the best single cast in LotR, he's done nothing short of a phenomenal job of the role. He brought the character to life in a way I can't imagine anyone else having done. That said, I still think Martin Freeman as Bilbo is even better.


I rather liked Rhys-Davies as Gimli.

Then again John Rhys-Davies was basically playing himself.

If Ian McKellen is truly career-oriented, he will die shortly after Hobbit #2 comes out. He'll get that Best Actor Oscar after all, just wait a year.
