McKellen and Molina Join Da Vinci Code
According to Variety, both Ian McKellen [Lord of
the Rings] and Alfred Molina [Spider-Man 2] have signed on to join Ron Howard
on The Da Vinci Code. Alfred Molina will play the role of Bishop
Arigarosa, who strives to expose the truth [or at least threatened to] of
the Catholic Church and all of Christianity. Ian McKellen will take the
role of Sir Teabing, who is as much interested in the conspiracy as is Robert
Langdon [Tom Hanks].
