Ian McKellen Still Not Set For Hobbit Film

| Filed under: Film Flickers

we want ian mckellan to play gandalf in the hobbit

We've been very happy with Hobbit casting announcements so far…especially Martin Freeman as Bilbo Baggins.

The one announcement that we haven't heard, though, is who will play Gandalf, and we REALLY hope that person is Ian McKellen!

For a long time, it seemed like McKellen as Gandalf would be a sure thing, but he recently said to Broadway World that he wasn't under contract for the film yet. He didn't comment further because he was worried that it "might complicate things."

How is he not under contract? Ian McKellen should have been the FIRST actor to be placed under contract for this movie!

Spread the word - WE WANT IAN!!!!

    I don't even think I could watch it if he's not in it…

    Well, he's old and filming the Hobbit probably won't be the easiest thing for him at his age

    Ian needs to be in the movie, seriously! What would it be without him?

    His name is Ian McKellen.

    Putting another actor in that role will ruin the movies for me.
