“Fly, you fools!”
…to your laptops and vote here right now to have Sir Ian McKellen as this year’s fall lecturer! Yes, you heard right. You may be able to see Gandalf/Magneto in the flesh.
But why Sir Ian McKellen? Well, why breathe? Why eat? Why smile back at Gail at the Ratty? Sir Ian McKellen is everything that is good in the world. Not only does he boast an impressive acting career, but he’s also just unfathomably suave and cultured. It’s hard for me to articulate just how perfect this man is (you did notice the “Sir” part, right?), so I’ll just let his accomplishments speak for themselves.
