Today is Willie Nelson's 80th birthday. Happy birthday you old fart!
To ring in his birthday, he made a fake Gandalf audition reel for The Hobbit 2 on Conan.
The best part was, Ian McKellen—who actually played Gandalf in The Lord of The Rings—must have seen the clip because he took to his Twitter to respond to Willie.
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
Though it must be said, Ian McKellen is actually only 73. Still, this is an awesome video and it's dope McKellen was such a good sport about it.
