      Ross and Chandler's friend Mike "Gandalf" Ganderson, who they called the party wizard, is based on the character from The Lord Of The Rings. Gandalf the wizard, who was also known to be a hit at the parties with his fireworks, was played by Ian McKellen in the Academy Award-winning film adaptation Lord of the Rings.
