McKellen to Return as Gandalf

OK, I’m officially feeling better about these Hobbit movies. Ian McKellen has confirmed that he will be playing the wizard Del Toro’s vision of Middle Earth.

    The real question…
    Is who will play Bilbo. Sir Ian Holm might be a little too old to play the part.

      Isn’t one of the plot points that Bilbo stops aging once he gets the Ring? Thus, he should look the same in The Hobbit as he did at the beginning of Fellowship?

      Not really, since he hadn’t aged since finding the ring. He looked pretty much the same in the flashbacks to Gollum’s cave (age 50), as he did 61 years later at the start of Fellowship.
