Early look at the new Sleestak

by on Apr.30, 2008, under Movies

USA Today has a preview of the new Sleestak for the upcoming Land of the Lost film. They look pretty much like the original rubber-suit Sleestak, and that’s intentional – but they are still a far cry superior to the early 90s version. Maybe they can get Bill Laimbeer in a cameo and reprise his role as a Sleestak. The article does confirm that this is to be a comedy, which is a bit disappointing.

McKellen to return as Gandalf in The Hobbit

Ian McKellen, who played the wizard Gandalf in The Lord of the Rings trilogy, and had expressed interest in playing the role again in a Hobbit production, will indeed return to the role. He also talks of his other alter-ego, Magneto, where he believes it unlikely that he would play the role in a possible Magneto-oriented spin-off.
