Sir Ian McKellen. Can't Post

Hi guys,

I just spoke to a fellow PGCE student who told me that Sir Ian McKellen came in to his placement school (Bristol) in order to do a talk on homophobia. I'm very jealous and that he got to meet him. I almost immediately asked him if anybody questioned him about the Hobbit and specifically whether he was doing it. I was delighted when he told me that Sir Ian's reply was; "I'm doing it...we start filming in February". So that's good enough for me. My colleague has no reason to make this sort of thing up and he's not that sort of chap anyhow. In addition i'm told that he spoke very well, was funny and managed to skirt round some awkward questions. My friend said that it was very positive as many of the children were not accepting of gay people, yet some attitudes were changed or mellowed at least. He also said that he was surprised at how "doddery" he looked when walking..."as you don't think of him like that" were his words.

That's all folks. So the main man will play Gandalf the Grey for sure, wahoo!
