During an appearance on Graham Norton's BBC Radio 2 show, the actor was asked if it was going to be annoying to have another Gandalf around, McKellen replied: "What do you mean, another Gandalf?"

He added: "I haven't said yes because I haven't been asked. But are you suggesting that someone else is going to play it? Gandalf is over 7000 years old, so I'm not too old."
