Willie Nelson as Gandalf the Grey? What a great idea.
Watch the country music legend, who turns 80 today, in this web exclusive from Conan. In the video, the wizened, pipe-weed loving author of “On The Road Again” auditions for the role of Gandalf in The Hobbit 2, with the help of his son, Micah.
As Tolkien once wrote in a song of his own, “the road goes ever on and on.” And for Nelson, that will always be the case.
We hope you get the part, Willie.
