James McAvoy is interested in playing Gandalf in Silmarillion

Apparently James McAvoy is a Tolkien fan. 
The X-Men: First Class, Scottish actor revealed this, while talking with Total Film. Along with informing about him wanting to become part of The Middle Earth franchise and wield the staff of one of the most famous of fictional Wizards, Gandalf The Grey!
McAvoy added this: “I’d like to play Gandalf. It’s called The Silmarillion! It’s a collection of poems and songs that chart the ancient history of Middle-earth. My true geek is coming to the fore, but they’re really, really beautiful stories. In part of that is the genesis of Gandalf, or Mithrandir, or Stormcrow, or any of his many, many names. Anyway, maybe that’s the one!”

The are currently no plans on bringing an adaptation of 'The Silmarillion' onto the Big Screen, but with the success of all the Tolkien adaptations there is a possibility for this to be done.
Although McAvoy is a great choice to me personally, but shouldn't it be Fassbender?

What do you think?

Gandalf demands you shall not pass without commenting!
