Willie Nelson wants to replace Ian McKellen as Gandalf - Team Coco Video Can't Post

TeamCoco.com, aka Conan O'Brien, one of America's most popular late-night talk show hosts, got their hands on Willie Nelson's audition tape for, what they call, 'The Hobbit 2.' In the video, Willie suggests to Peter Jackson that he may make a better Gandalf than Ian McKellen. (Strong language and content warning!) [Direct Video Link]

This was hilarious [In reply to] Can't Post

Some people think Jackson made poor casting decisions with the Middle-Earth films. I say he made it right by having Ian Mckellan play Gandalf, and not Nelson. He can't even say Gandalf's name right! Too funny.

Funny, but why not the pipe? [In reply to] Can't Post

I know Willie likes his joints, and this was pretty funny, but why not show him loading up the pipe? Perhaps the average viewer would not clearly get the weed reference ...

On the Road Going On and On Again. / [In reply to] Can't Post

 

******************************************
The audacious proposal stirred his heart. And the stirring became a song, and it mingled with the songs of Gil-galad and Celebrian, and with those of Feanor and Fingon. The song-weaving created a larger song, and then another, until suddenly it was as if a long forgotten memory woke and for one breathtaking moment the Music of the Ainur revealed itself in all glory. He opened his lips to sing and share this song. Then he realized that the others would not understand. Not even Mithrandir given his current state of mind. So he smiled and simply said "A diversion.
