Ian Mckellan will likely reprise his role as Gandalf in the forthcoming The Hobbit.
Sir Ian McKellen is still enchanted with the wizard Gandalf and expects to reprise his Oscar-nominated role for the much anticipated The Hobbit, whether or not Lord of the Rings director Peter Jackson helms it.
McKellen informed Reuters, “When Peter announced he had withdrawn from The Hobbit, he sent me an e-mail saying ‘Because I am not going to do it, it doesn’t mean you have to do the same. Of course, you must play Gandalf whether I direct or not.’”
The 68 year-old British actor added, “I am glad to read that (The Hobbit) is looking more and more likely. … I would be disappointed if they didn’t want to have the original Gandalf. I suppose if I am still functioning and working well, it is very likely I would be asked to do it and if I were, I would be very pleased to do it.”
