Sean Connery as Gandalf? NFW...

"In an interview with Wired, Smith said, 'I would have absolutely messed up 'The Matrix.' At that point I wasn't smart enough as an actor to let the movie be -- whereas Keanu was.'"

Yeah, that Keanu-- great thespian of our time. . . ;)

I'm a big Connery fan, but Gandalf was cast perfectly. He was played by someone who knew the role, and gave a damn about it.

I can't imagine Cary Grant as 007. He just doesn't seem the sort of character to kick ass and cause mayhem.
