Ringer Spy Craig sends along this report on the latest adventures of Ian McKellen (Gandalf) and John Rhys-Davies (Gimli)

* Ian McKellen will be a talk as part of the Cinequest Film Festival in San Jose, CA, this Saturday, March 2nd. 12pm noon. Here’s the link for details:


* John Rhys-Davies did a *hilarious* stint on the most excellent cartoon “Spongebob Squarepants” on Nickelodeon in the US. He plays Manray, the evil arch-nemesis of Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy (voiced by Ernest Borgnine and Tim Conway, respectively). If you want the name of the episode to post (which I only have seen broadcast the time I recorded it, although the show is in fairly heavy rotaion), I’ll snag it off my tape at home & send it to you. He’s really over the top in it – way-funny!
