Today marks Willie Nelson's 80th birthday, but instead of waiting for gifts to be showered upon him, he has given us this important video. Courtesy of Team Coco, Willie has released his audition tape for 'The Hobbit 2', wherein he proposed to replace that Ian McKellan guy. "He's a good actor, but hell, I'm Willie Nelson."

Truer words were never spoken. In fact, let's just go ahead and recast everything with Willie in the lead role.
