Willie nelson audition

Willie nelson audition, Country star Willie Nelson celebrated his 80th birthday with a fake audition for the magical role of Gandalf in the next Hobbit film.

The On The Road Again singer hit the eight-decade mark on Monday and on the same day released his The Hobbit 2 audition reel on comedian Conan O'Brien's Team Coco YouTube channel.

The music legend and advocate for marijuana legalization included several pot references in the short video.

Willie opened the video by telling Lord Of The Rings and The Hobbit director Peter Jackson to cast him in the wizard role made famous on the big screen by Sir Ian McKellen.

With a black hat, dark cloak and walking stick in hand, Nelson opened his audition by saying, 'Hey, look at that dragon!'

He was joined in the spoof reel by son Micah playing the role of Bilbo Baggins, the title character in J.R. Tolkien's 1937 novel The Hobbit.

After Micah's character said they're having a night to remember, Willie's smoking Gandalf replied, 'Or not' and started chuckling.

Willie's Gandalf also had unkind words for the demonic Balrogs, calling them 'ass**

He and his son altered the words slightly to a 1970s country classic and sang, 'Mama, don't let your babies grow up to be Orcs.'

'Be what?' Willie asked about the reference to the miserable creatures in Tolkien's fantasy world.

Willie ended his reel by telling Jackson 'to fire that Ian McKellen guy. He's a good actor, but hell, I'm Willie Nelson.'

McKellen responded on Monday with a Twitter message to Willie.

'Dear Willie, You are far too young to play Gandy.But nice try; have a stoner of a birthday. Love and admiration. Ian,' his tweet said.
