Here he is talking about the script:
” There’s lots for me to enjoy, in all sorts of ways. And I couldn’t be happier. But I’m sworn to secrecy. I’m not to say anything at all about the script.” Gee, thanks for the revealing peek Ian
Here he is about how the role has changed his life:
“I can’t believe it’s 10 years for me… I remember being told by a friend in Hollywood that ‘your life is going to change,’ and it has. Gandalf is an extremely famous character, and I quite like having him around the corner. He’s very popular.” I guess Magneto is fucking unknown and Ganalf is the shit.
I like what he said here about Del Toro and Peter Jackson (both working on he Hobbit…obviously)
“They are the same person… They were separated at birth. They’re twins. They have the same attitude. Neither likes working in Hollywood. They’re both fascinated by fantasy and violence on the screen, and gore, and things that frighten you. They like going into the psyche. They’re both brilliant storytellers in very much the same way. And I think the script, because I have read it, plays very much to Guillermo’s strengths, as I’ve seen them. I have seen his other movies, and people act very well in them. So I think it’s all fine. And Peter will always be there.” D’aawwww
This guy is one of the coolest fucking old guys ever. By the way, Aaron: HAVE you read the Hobbit script?
