proof that I can be pretty s-l-o-w

I've watched The Lord of the Rings a few times, but it wasn't until I saw the special features last week that I realized that Gandalf is Magneto.
Proof that Hollywood still possesses some magic.

He is a neat person to play that part. I read an article one time that he had an interview in and said that his granddaughter made him do it. I mean that she threatened to never talk to him again if he didnt do it and he felt obliged to do it. I didnt mean she made him but I think you know what I mean. Have a great day.

Ahem. Don't worry, Sonja, that's a natural mistake to make. Plus, they made his nose HUGE as Gandalf!

Another revelation: le lord of the elves (you know, the father of Liv Taylor, eheh) is Mr. Smith (from the Matrix)! Yep!
It was a shock for me when I realized!

I did recognize le lord of the elves from the Matrix. At least something, right?! And, people, just for the record: I recognized Orlando Bloom, even with the flowy blonde locks (or should I say that I know recognize him even without the wig?).
