Picked this up from Calisuri (since when was he a news man?) thanks bud.
From Corona comes an interesting scoop regarding talks of more casting by director Peter Jackson: Yes, at least one conversation has transpired between Ian McKellen and Jackson regarding the role of Gandalf. Not certain this has been he has PASSED on yet, but remember that any actor who takes on this job will in effect be committing to his next THREE films and the next TWO AND A HALF YEARS of his life. Not certain that McKellen wants to make either of those commitments. For now, let’s still consider this job IN PLAY.”
