McKellen: Playing the Part is a great documentary that runs about 92 minutes long and showcases the work and life of the X-Men and Lord of the Rings star Ian McKellen but also features some people actually portraying him threw his life and of course even some actors as well also such as Luke Evans (Fast & Furious 6) and Patrick Stewart who he worked alongside for the X-Men movies.
