McKellen to be Gandalf in THE HOBBIT

Presumably, this news will help THE BEAT recover from any travel-related mishaps that may have occurred on her trip out to SD.

Empire magazine caught up with Sir Ian at THE DARK KNIGHT premiere and said his returning to play everyone’s favorite wizard is all but a done deal.

Well, I haven’t had the contract yet but it’s everyone’s intention that I play Gandalf so yes, I will be returning to the role. Although it’s not until 2010, I’m very much excited about returning.”
