    Do you think he ever gets tired of the “Why can’t I pass” question?

    Oh bless his soul for that response to the Aragorn/Legloas question. Let out a small gasp and giggle, though I’d like to spend BOTH the evening and night with Aragorn.

  • Terence Ng

    Ugh, I LOVE THIS SO MUCH.

    If only he could express his desire to skip that question, by means of some spoken phrase, or even a single word. Unfortunately…

    Do you like cats? Hello, random.

  • James Harmon

    Well, clearly, you cannot pass on such a question.

    No love for Eowyn? Poor girl got railroaded by Tolkien at the end though :/

    No offense to Eowyn but she’s not my cup of tea?

    This post is about Ian McKellen. And … he comments on specific characters. I… don’t know what you’re expecting at all.
