Legendary Zoomer Actor Sir Ian McKellen seems downright insulted that anyone else could possibly play Gandalf the Gray.
Amazon has announced it is preparing a new “Lord of the Rings” series. While no casting details have been announced, the 78-year old actor told BBC he’s certainly willing to reprise the role and is a bit offended that Amazon would even consider giving the role to someone other than him.
Amazon’s multi-season series, which includes a potential additional spin-off series, will not recover the stories in the Peter Jackson-directed movies, but will instead explore new story lines preceding J.R.R. Tolkien’s trilogy.
