Over the Holidays, Sir Christopher Lee posted a video message to YouTube which discuses both the state of the world in general, as well as his upcoming projects. Naturally, he segues into his return as Saruman in Peter Jackson's forthcoming HOBBIT films, in a section beginning 'round 6:05.
Part 2 of his Christmas message can be found here. He discusses being made a Fellow of BAFTA early in 2011 (details HERE) and not having an acceptance speech prepared. He also references being made an "Horary Member of the Law Society of Dublin," being decorated by the French Ambassador as a "Commander of Arts and Letters," and his follow-up to his CHARLEMAGNE album, subtitled "The Omens of Death" (samples of first album HERE).
