Few fans may have missed that The Lord of the Rings will be adapted to the small screen by Amazon. The series will explore the time and events leading to The Hobbit and LotR.
On Graham Norton’s radio talk show, the host went on to question McKellen’s thoughts on the new series and what he thought of the idea of another actor helming his iconic role as Gandalf. Well, Sir Ian was not having it. Check out his thoughts below:
“What do you mean, another Gandalf…I haven’t said yes because I haven’t been asked, but are you suggesting that someone else is going to play it?”
McKellen went on to say:
“Gandalf is over 7000 years old, so I’m not too old [yet].”
