Willie Nelson Makes Audition Tape For Role Of Gandalf In Hobbit 2!!

As part of his 80th birthday celebrations country music legend Willie Nelson made an audition tape with the folks at CONAN, imploring Peter Jackson to hire him to play the role of Gandalf in the Hobbit 2 aka The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug!

Nelson, who as well as being a music legend is also an activist, actor, writer and advocate for the legalization of marijuana, makes an incredibly interesting Gandalf. From this smokin’ pitch, it’s easy to see why Jackson might be tempted to give Sir Ian McKellen the old heave-ho and get Nelson in instead!

Can you imagine a movie where Gandalf comes out with the lines like, “that giant flaming eye is freaking me the fuck out!!” That would be hilarious!
