Ha, I forgot about this thread. This is from a few days ago, but this made my eyes go wide:

Why Ian McKellen turned down Gandalf

All I have to say is thank you, Bob Shaye!
As good as McKellen is in the X-Men films (particularly in X2), the Magneto role is nothing compared to Gandalf. I'm glad TPTB found a way to accommodate McKellen's talents for LOTR.
