It is Willie Nelson’s 80th birthday…so Conan O’Brien thought it might be a wonderful birthday present for the wild man of country to make a video in which Nelson auditions to play Gandalf in the next Hobbit movie?
Ian McKellen the current Gandalf tweeted “Dear Willie, You are far too young to play Gandy. But nice try; have a stoner of a birthday. Love and admiration.”
Happy Birthday Willie!
