Christopher Lee Would Return as Saruman

By ON

86-year-old Christopher Lee has expressed his interest in returning as Saruman in Guillermo del Toro’s The Hobbit and/or the untitled sequel.

While the evil wizard is not featured in the “Lord of the Rings” prequel, the two films give plenty of room for Saruman to return in some aspect. Lee tells Empire Online:

I’d be interested in seeing how that transition from good to evil occurred and, yes, of course I would return to the role if I was asked.
