VIDEO: Ian McKellen Teaches Cookie Monster to 'Resist' on SESAME STREET

You shall not pass! Please resist! The word resist means to control yourself and stop yourself from doing something you really want to do, though that's not a word that Cookie Monster really understands. So, stage and screen vet Ian McKellen stopped by SESAME STREET to demonstrate. Watch the clip below!

McKellen, well known for his roles in The Lord of the Rings trilogy and The Hobbit films, has appeared on Broadway in Waiting for Godot and No Man's Land, as well as Dance of Death, Ian McKellen: A Knight Out at the Lyceum, Wild Honey, Ian McKellen: Acting Shakespeare, Amadeus -- which won him a Tony in 1981 -- and The Promise. In the West End, McKellen has starred in A Scent of Flowers, Richard II, Edward II, Macbeth, Othello, King Lear, The Seagull, The Tempest and many more productions.
