Sir Christopher Lee - New Video on Forbes Can't Post

There is a new interview on video with Christopher Lee on the Forbes website, promising it is the first in a series of videos. What caught my eye was the initial statement in the article by the author John Farrell.

"Earlier this month, I had an opportunity to sit down with British film star Sir Christopher Lee, who on the verge of turning 89 is getting ready to reprise his role as Saruman in Peter Jackson’s two-part production of The Hobbit (among many other projects)."

I watched the five minute video and there was no mention of The Hobbit. Perhaps that will come on the next round of videos promised to be released.

However, I found it interesting that Farrell, who had just sat down with Sir Christopher, would not state the phrase "getting ready to reprise his role as Saruman" in a more cautious way if his involvement was still up in the air. It would be odd to use that statement (considering he just interviewed him) if the author wasn't told that by Lee himself. So is this possibly a "backwards confirmation" of Lee coming back in The Hobbit?

While it certainly isn't official and the article isn't detailed enough to confirm, it does make me wonder if that announcement is close. And I'll be watching for future videos!
