Sir Ian McKellen

  1. 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?

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. Don’t Let Ian McKellen Make You Overly Optimistic About More Lord of the Rings Films

    Those were the stories that stayed with you.

    Ian McKellen isn't ruling out the possibility of more films set in Middle-Earth, but you probably shouldn't get your hopes up.

  9. Ian McKellen Pulls A Gandalf To Motivate Studying Students

    P. Stewart, come out. I know you're hiding somewhere.

    What, you think some eagles are going to pass algebra for you? Gwaihir has tried, but he cannot solve for X.
