McKellen NOT To Play Dumbledore

November 12, 2002 at 12:53 pm by xoanon  - 

After Christopher Lee (Saruman) has come out and specifically denied rumors that he is to play Dumbledore in any future Harry Potter films, all fingers started pointing at another LOTR star, Sir Ian McKellen. If you want confirmation on something, go to the source, so we did just that.

In a recent phone interview with McKellen (while staying in Vancouver to finish up X2), I asked him point blank about playing Dumbledore, and he expressly denied being asked about the part, being approched or even considered for it.

On the contrary he’s planning on staying in Vancouver for a while and work with some local talent, then off to England.

Watch this space for the entire interview with Ian McKellen (Gandalf) next week!
