Gandalf (Ian McKellen)

Legendary actor Ian McKellen doesn’t want any other actor to play Gandalf in the upcoming Lord of the Rings TV series but himself. McKellen, of course, has a long history playing J.R.R. Tolkien’s iconic wizard character, first having embodied him in Peter Jackson’s Lord of the Rings trilogy from 2001 to 2003, and again for Jackson’s The Hobbit prequel trilogy from 2012 to 2014.

Fans immediately embraced McKellen’s heartfelt portrayal of Gandalf, as did his industry colleagues, who nominated the master thespian for a Best Supporting Actor Oscar for his first turn as the wizard in 2001’s The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring.

15 Dark Secrets You Never Knew About Starship Troopers

Starship Troopers is a sweet movie to say the least– soldiers’ legs get ripped off, cows get cut into crimson confetti, and it even includes some people without clothing in it. Essentially, it has everything that a classic film needs and then some.

However, the movie has a pretty intricate and shadowy backstory that explains why the film that landed in theaters turned out the way it did. From extremely violent scenes that had to be censored (only to reappear on cable TV years later), to protests by PETA and young girls gossiping about Casper Van Dien’s tush, Starship Troopers has its share of dark secrets to go along with all of its excellent bug killing action.

You might know the Lazarus Pit from original DC comics, most famously for its role in empowering Ra’s al Ghul, Batman’s fictitious supervillain adversary. Nowadays, of course, the Lazarus Pit has taken on a slightly more modern twist, and appears somewhat regularly in television’s Arrowerse, via the television shows Arrow and Legends of Tomorrow.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt in Don Jon

Joseph Gordon-Levitt has always been a major Star Wars fan. When he attended the world premiere of The Force Awakens back in 2015, Gordon-Levitt famously turned up in a home-made Yoda costume. It featured a white robe, pajama bottoms, a beanie with pointed ears, and of course green face-paint.

Gordon-Levitt has always been strongly associated with Rian Johnson, writer and director of The Last Jedi. In fact, he’s appeared in every single Johnson film to date. So it comes as no surprise that the talented actor has a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it cameo in The Last Jedi too.
