Phew, continuity. I wonder how much he's getting paid for reprising the role. Not like he really needs it after 3 big-budget movies as Magneto and the 3 LOTR's but, still, dude's got bills to pay.

I think he'd probably do it for free if he had to. He clearly loves the role, so I doubt money is a big motivator in this instance.

It's nice to think of actors enjoying their roles that much. He really does bring the character to life, although it can't be a huge confidence booster to be really good at playing a centuries-old wizard haha.
