Great news for all of LOTR fans: Gandalf will be starring the remake of “The Hobbit”, played of course by the wonderful Ian McKellan:
The third question down gets right to the point – will you again be our Gandalf in The Hobbit now that the deal is settled?
“Yes I will, if Peter Jackson and I have anything to do with it, he being the producer and me being, on the whole, a very lucky actor. – source
Well, honestly – it would be criminal to have anyone BUT McKellan in that role!
