    So, I guess James McAvoy never read The Silmarillion, then?

    “In the likeness of Men they appeared, old but vigorous, and they changed little with the years.”

    That’s the description of the Wizards when they show up in Middle Earth. There was never was a “young Gandalf.” Although by the time Christopher Tolkien lets a film studio anywhere near The Silmarillion, James McAvoy may well be an old man.
