I’m in a foul mood today. My shitty day started when my finger broke through the toilet paper. It continued when a actual retard called me a retard (true story). Now, after hearing that Sir Ian McKellen is still un-signed to reprise his role as Gandalf in ‘The Hobbit’ tonight’s gonna be an angry jerk off tonight (to myself, not other dudes.).
McKellen made the reveal in an interview with Broadwayworld.
Are you involved in THE HOBBIT?
I am not under contract, no.
Have you had any meetings?
I’m not going to say any more than that because it might complicate things! So, I would say – at the moment – no, I am not under contract.
Is it OK for me to then take that as a “Yes” with a “but…”?
Laughs. I’m not saying any more than what I’ve said! (Laughs.)
Seriously dude, what the fuck is the hold up? Why don’t you have that rubber nose and grey beard glued to your face right now? All the shit that we’ve had to endure in the making of this film (the on and off directors, Studio financial woes and actors union crap in New Zealand) you gotta go and throw more poo in the fan? Christ, the one things fans want to hear is that your lovable gay ass (I mean that in the best of sense, of course) is be gonna Gandalf. I apologize, my anger is not towards you. It’s really be directed to the douchcanoes that haven’t signed you yet. I mean don’t you guys starting production in February or something? Someone please get this man signed up to play Gandalf already!
The film is being directed by Peter Jackson, who needs to get McKellen on board now, and currently stars James Nesbitt, newcomer Adam Brown, Martin Freeman, Richard Armitage (Captain America: The First Avenger), Aidan Turner (Being Human), Rob Kazinsky (EastEnders), Graham McTavish (Secretariat), John Callen (TV’s Power Rangers Jungle Fury), Stephen Hunter (All Saints), Mark Hadlow (King Kong), Peter Hambleton (The Strip) and Andy Serkis as Gollum.
