Ian McKellen still wants to play Gandalf in the Lord of the Rings show

After six movies across 13 years and an Oscar nomination for playing the role, you’d think Sir Ian McKellen would be done playing Gandalf from the LORD OF THE RINGS series. At the very least he must be okay with passing on the role to someone else, right? Turns out the veteran thespian believes he has some more spellcasting left in him, and would probably say yes if asked to...

The Lord of the Rings may live again as an Amazon TV series

I had serious doubts that J.R.R. Tolkein's "The Lord of the Rings" series could ever successfully make the transition to the big-screen, but what Peter Jackson was able to achieve with THE FELLOWSHIP OF THE RING, THE TWO TOWERS, and THE RETURN OF THE KING was absolutely astounding.

Last year marked the 15th anniversary of LORD OF THE RINGS: THE FELLOWSHIP OF THE RING, and if that’s not enough to make you feel like an old geezer then certainly a picture of some members of the Fellowship reenacting a scene only days ago certainly will.  Well, Elijah Wood, Billy Boyd, Dominic Monaghan, Orlando Bloom and Viggo Mortensen did just that in some photos posted by...
