Sir Ian McKellen, rocking a truly epic homeless beard, has recently admitted morons mistaking him for Dumbledore instead of calling him Gandalf really annoys him. And apparently he can be kind of a d-bag about it.
According to the man himself, McKellen gets mistaken for Michael Gambon, who plays Dumbledore, quite a bit, and as a true “Lord of the Rings” fan who has a tattoo in Elvish on his shoulder, he tells them he’s the one true wizard, Gandalf the Grey, not J.K. Rowling’s knockoff. Which, having read both series
and written a heavily researched fanfic, we think is a little unfair, but, hey, no point arguing with an obsessed fan.
Which to us raises the important question: who’d win in a fight? Our money’s on Gandalf.
