The 82-year-old reflects on being cast as the iconic J.R.R. Tolkien wizard.
Sir Ian McKellen has positive things to say about former X-Men co-star Elliot Page coming out as trans.
This X-Men question couldn't have come at a better time.
The Argo actor waited until his '60s to officially come out as gay to the public.
File this under "Extremely Good News": On Sunday, the Lord of the Rings cast had a reunion on Josh Gad's Reunited Apart series, and, yes, it was quite epic. It's been nearly 20 years since the first installment in the Peter Jackson's LOTR trilogy, The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring, debuted in theaters in December 2001. Three movies and many years later, it felt so dang thrilling to see the entire cast plus Jackson and screenwriter Philippa Boyens come together.

Sir Patrick Stewart is wonderful. We all know this. From Star Trek to X-Men to Shakespeare and everything in between (I'm partial to this stoned explanation of quadruple takes, myself), Stewart has cemented himself as an incredible acting talent and a genuinely charming, wholesome human being. He took that image up a notch when appearing on Wired's lovely "celebrities answer Googled questions about themselves" program, revealing many lovely things -- including the origins of his friendship with Sir Ian McKellen.

The actor who played Middle Earth's most meddlesome wizard recalls what it was like to wrap on one of cinema's greatest trilogies.
We're a little over a month away from Tom Hooper's live-action musical Cats hitting theaters. The cast that includes Judi Dench, Jennifer Hudson, Idris Elba, Taylor Swift, and Ian McKellen. But, as we saw in the first Cats trailer over the summer, all the actors' handsome faces and bodies have been covered in what's become (infamously) known as "digital fur technology" to make them look like, well, cats. [caption id="attachment_792318" align="alignright" width="360"] Image via Universal[/caption] The look of actors covered in digital fur has sparked a wide, wide array of reactions. McKellen, …
Ian McKellen defended the controversial use of CGI technology in the upcoming Cats movie musical.
Do not be too eager to deal out scorn and ridicule over the look of the cats in Tom Hooper's film.
Ian McKellen is a celebrated British actor who excels in any role he takes. Mostly known as Gandalf and Magneto, here is the film star's best work.
Ian McKellen plays a seasoned con artist whose latest mark (Helen Mirren) might be more than she seems in the new trailer for The Good Liar.
Peter Jackson's The Lord of the Rings is an awesome adaptation of Tolkien's novels, partially thanks to the cast, including McKellen as Gandalf.
Warner Bros. has released the first trailer for The Good Liar. Bill Condon’s upcoming film stars Ian McKellen as a lifelong con artist who starts to woo a wealthy widow (Helen Mirren), but as he starts to develop genuine feelings for her, his world begins to spiral out of control. While I’m not a die-hard Bill Condon fan, his collaborations with McKellen tend to be pretty special when McKellen has a leading role (when he doesn’t, you get Beauty and the Beast). McKellen rarely gets leading roles, and that’s a shame because you can see …
