WTF? Sir Ben Kingsley Stars As Ian MacKaye in Minor Threat Tribute Video
There isn't much to go on, even from the site that is taking responsibility for the video, but in a new promo made by MEAN Magazine, Sir Ben Kingsley (aka the dude who won an Oscar as Gandhi) has now taken on one of the unlikeliest roles of his life: Ian MacKaye, circa his Minor Threat days. Yes, believe it!

Is Sir Ben up for the part of Sir Ian in a new biopic on the early days of DC punk? Who knows? All we have to go on is this little bite MEAN gave readers:

Sir Ben Kingsley: Oscar-winner. Knight of the realm. Sexy beast. Stars for MEANÂ… in a tribute to our hardcore heroes, Minor Threat.

All you can really do is enjoy it for now.
