Sir Ian McKellen Thinks Justin Timberlake Should Play Him on Film


Via Monsters and Critics:

Mckellen"Sir Ian McKellen wants Justin Timberlake to play him in a musical about his life. The 'Lord of the Rings' star is keen to see his eventful life played out on stage and thinks the pop heartthrob would be the perfect person to portray him. He said: 'Justin vaguely resembles people in my family, and I think he is really talented.'"

According to his former N'Sync bandmate, Justin has expressed an interest in playing a gay role.

McKellen also reportedly scolded movie studios for encouraging actors to stay in the closet: "With all that liberal attitude in Hollywood, you have a local industry which is saying to local people who live in the area, 'When you come to work, you are not gay.' And I think to myself, 'Can people whose minds work like that make good films? And if at the heart of Hollywood there is that lie, how many other lies are there?' And it's the producers who have this problem - God knows what sort of people they are - who think that it's impossible for you and me to fancy the same person. Well, what dull lives they must have."

  1. All right, this is one of those "tongue in cheek" sort of statements, right? And Justin just doesn't have nicest cheeks for that, Sir Ian.

  2. Ugh! JT is an overrated, overly produced, marginally talented, white middle class frat boy acting black. His concert on HBO was boring as watching paint dry and he can't act shit to save his life.

  3. In the second photo JT says, "DAMN, my skin may be black but my dick is still sooooo small."

  4. I _love_ Sir Ian, but I really think it's time to shave. The beard is making him look a little like Saddam Hussein in his spider-hole phase.

    Get thee to a stylist!

  6. Justin usually looks pretty good it photos, not handsome in the classic way. But with his clothes off, man he looks hot. Yummy!

  8. TJC: Serena is playing King Lear in rep at the moment, so I think the beard helps with being in the part.

  11. I just love Justin. He is a hottie and a gay icon. I just hate this trend of hair on the face, and shaving it off everywhere else. I wish he would shave his face, and stop shaving his arms and chest!
