Ian McKellen playing Gandalf again, this time on stage!

No, unfortunately there's not another LORD OF THE RINGS musical secretly in the works (which is actually nice because it means my play LORD OF THE SINGS is still open for business!) but Ian McKellen is indeed gonna play Gandalf on the London stage.

He'll actually be playing multiple roles of his from the past (fingers crossed for Magneto and the polar bear from GOLDEN COMPASS) in the exclusive one-man show SHAKESPEARE, TOLKIEN, OTHERS & YOU. Here's what McKellen himself had to say about the project:

I’m performing at Park Theatre to help raise funds for the charity...In a short time the theater has established itself on both the theatrical and local maps. But with no public subsidy for core costs they need to bring in donations of around £250,000 ($311,000) every year just to keep the doors open.

Sounds cool. Too bad it's in fucking London.

So what do you Schmoes think is the best McKellan role? Sound off below!

Extra Tidbit: Even though the movie sucks, McKellan shines in X3.
