    I think those might be 3D glasses. I saw PJ wearing a similar pair in his intro video a couple weeks ago. Yes, fine, I admit it. I watched it twice and squealed like a teenage girl both times.

    Yes, I believe that it was mentioned in Peter Jackson’s intro video that Ian McKellan would have to wear a different nose as well as the grey wig.

      He wore a larger, prosthetic nose in the trilogy. They talk about it in the special features of the extended versions.

      glad someone else thought ZZ-top. I was reading through the comments and feeling old because no one else was coming up with it.

    your ears and nose are the only things that grow your entire life. that’s why old men have such big ears and noses. maybe that’s what happened?

    Definatly the 3D glasses. Since they’re shooting the Hobbit in 3D, and Gandalf’s gotta be able to see what’s going on when he’s not being filmed!

      What eyeballs? you can’t see them behind those dark shades.
      I guess you could call Gandalf a W.I.B. Wizard In Black.
