Tuesday is Willie Nelson's 80th birthday. To celebrate, he did what any legendary country musician would do: he recorded a fake Gandalf audition reel for The Hobbit 2 on Conan.
If you like Willie Nelson, Tolkien, or stoner gags, then this clip is for you. Even Ian McKellen, Nelson's new Gandalf rival, approves.
Dear Willie, You are far too young to play Gandy.But nice try; have a stoner of a birthday. Love and admiration. Ian bit.ly/11S8A3k— Ian McKellen (@IanMcKellen) April 30, 2013
