Does anyone know why his last acting credit is in 2008? If he just switched over to stage productions, then I see no harm in it, but if he's sworn off film for some reason, I see why it's somewhat problematic.

Fantasy casting being what it is, it's not a big deal. Our only real rules are that the actor be alive and be cast at his current age (no 'so-and-so from the 1980s').

Nobody i couldn't live with, but i am a bit surprised we have Gary Oldman as gandalf... though i have zero doubt he could pull that role.he's a true chamaelon and a great actor.

Part of it had to do with the longevity; they expect Oldman to last longer than Irons since Oldman is 10 years younger, and partly because Irons was too obvious a choice.
