Huey, Dewey, Louie, Scrooge, and Gandalf

It's pretty amazing this kid (what is he, 16?) can so effortlessly imitate the alcohol/cigarette/time-ravaged booming voice of Sir Ian McKellen (who, btw, has his own website).

Hollywood entertainment conglomerates must be relieved to know that should Sir Ian happen to meet his maker during the filming of a movie (The Hobbit 2?), some computer geeks and this kid's voice will ensure that nobody in the audience will notice.

Come to think of it--this might just add another 50-60 years to McKellen's lengthy career. Animated movies would be a snap and live-action would just require a green-masked body double and a slight increase in the visual-effects budget.

Hmmm...I wonder how Sir Ian feels about suddenly becoming so eminently replaceable...
