Sir Ian McKellen

  1. If It’s Not Baroque, Don’t Fix It: Ian McKellen to Play Cogsworth in Live-Action Beauty and the Beast

    Hermione and Gandalf, together at last

    According to Variety, wizard-for-hire Sir Ian McKellen has joined what is shaping up to be the extremely likable cast of Disney's Beauty and the Beast rebeaut. Production will reportedly begin later this year for a March 17, 2017 release date.

  2. Here’s Ian McKellen Pioneering the Selfie With a Baby-Faced Robert Downey Jr. in 1994

    Fact: A 1994 selfie is as close as Marvel and Fox's legal teams will let Magneto and Iron Man get.

    Don't you love how Sir Ian McKellen talks about selfies like he's an anthropologist untouched by our silly tech culture? Or just everything about him in general?

  3. First Trailer for Ian McKellen’s Mr.Holmes Is Here, Full of Bees (Beads?)

    That train is going to Hogwarts, right? I know the Hogwarts Express when I see it!

    The long-awaited first trailer for the Ian-McKellen-does-Sherlock movie Mr. Holmes is finally here, and I'm not sure that I'm as on board as I'd expected to be.

  4. First Clip Of Ian McKellen’s Retired Elderly Sherlock In Mr Holmes, Sadly Devoid of Bees

    Not Ian Holm. That's a different guy.

    This clip, however, does contain the following: 1) Sherlock Holmes throwing shade at Watson's accounts of their detective work; 2) Sherlock Holmes being indirectly outsmarted by a woman, kind of; and 3) Ian McKellen being sassy to a tiny youngster while speaking in a raspy voice about not being able to remember stuff. It's every nerd's dream.

  5. Apparently Sirs Patrick Stewart & Ian McKellen Won’t Have Roles in X-Men: Apocalypse

    While I was on an insane high from hearing Sophie Turner and Saoirse Ronan might play young Jean Grey in X-Men: Apocalypse, I have found a new low in hearing we likely won't be seeing Sir Patrick Stewart or Ian McKellen at all.

  6. Ian McKellen Steals the Spotlight With a Tiny Gong in George Ezra’s Latest Music Video

    Today he is Gandalf the pink pocket square'd.

    In addition to just generally being a delightfully catchy song, "Listen To The Man" also has a music video that features Ian McKellen doing an adorable dance and inadvertently hurting a British songwriter's feelings. The only thing it's missing is Patrick Stewart—although let's face it, he's probably right off camera feeding McKellen steps like a dance mom during pageant season.

  7. Ian McKellan Teaches Cookie Monster About Self Control By Presenting Him With THE RING OF SAURON ITSELF

    One cookie to rule them all.

    Ah, yes, I remember that passage of The Two Towers well. You know, the one where Cookie Monster is all, "Not were Minas Tirith falling in ruin and me alone could save her, so, using weapon of Dark Lord for good and glory. Me not wish for such triumphs, Frodo son of Drogo.” and then Frodo is like "Okay great, but can I have my chocolate chip cookies back?" and then Cookie Monster roars "NO NEVER, MINE ME OWN ME PRECIOUS OM NOMN NOM NOM," and then Sam cries a bunch.

    Resistance was futile.

    What do you do when you want to propose to your Trekkie significant other, but Jean-Luc Picard isn't available? Get an assist from Sir Patrick Stewart's sir-from-another-sire, Ian McKellen! This video is beautiful, and not just because it's clear Stewart is touched to be included in the couple's special moment--Brett Best (now happily engaged) is also so sincere and sweet throughout. Have fun exploring the universe, you crazy kids!

    Of course I'm going to make a Gull-adriel joke. What do you think I have, shame?

    Snikt

    Silly James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender. Everyone knows that when our benevolent alien overlords come down from the sky and take Sirs Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen away to have neverending space adventures together (because those two will never die), Robert Downey Jr and Mark Ruffalo are next in line for the celebrity soulmate BFFs title. Nice try, though. (via: Pajiba) Are you following The Mary Sue on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, Pinterest, & Google +?

    Engage, you fools!

    It's tough enough to play the younger version of a hugely famous actor in an equally famous role, but that wasn't enough for the world's best besties, Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen. They sat down with James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender and made them do their impressions in person, and it got as adorable as we've come to expect.
