McKellen has played Gandalf in all six of the movies based on J.R.R. Tolkien's tales for young adults.McKellen is also the mutant Magneto in the X-Men movies, part of a spectacular late-blooming Hollywood career that only really began at about age 50, after decades of doing Shakespeare and what is sometimes called "legitimate theater". While riding high on the lucrative X-Men and Middle Earth franchises -- the first Hobbit movie took in more than $1 billion -- McKellen also has been polishing his stage image.McKellen said he had no intention of reviving the famous Beckett play again, after some 450 performances.
