YouTube channel #Mashed looks at What Almost Was, when Sean Connery was offered the iconic role of Gandalf the Grey in Peter Jackson's Lord of the Rings trilogy.
Old news.. I was astounded at what they offered him though... He would have made almost half a billion dollars from the original trilogy... crazy
I remember hearing this, didn't they also initially have someone else cast as Aragorn too? I can't possibly imagine what the films would have been like with someone other than Ian McKellen as Gandalf, he done an amazing job.
