Ian McKellen + Mockumentary = [Mag]Neato!

McKellen is all powerful.

Sir Ian is going back to school…or he will be pending the ever-finicky U.K./U.S. buyers.

One of the most adorable and accomplished actors of all time is set to star in a new mockumentary series as the fictional Murray McKellen, Sir Ian’s little bro that heads up a failing drama school (Murray is McKellen’s real middle name). Production has begun on six episodes, but if it doesn’t get picked up soon the producers could risk a major conflict with McKellen’s schedule ::cough The Hobbit cough::

I’m rooting for some major Gervais-style humor along the lines of McKellen’s brilliant guest role on Extras.

Hopefully, I will get to see this show on BBC America at the very least. Until then I am prepping for the awesome that will be McKellen’s portrayal of Number Two in AMC’s The Prisoner (starting November 15th).
