No, 92-year-old Christopher Lee, who's made his name over the past several decades inhabiting scary roles ranging from Dracula to "LOTR's" Sarumon, has you beat: He's become a heavy metal singer.
This isn't a new thing. Lee's been involved in the heavy metal universe since the mid-2000s, releasing symphonic metal albums like "Charlemagne: By the Sword and the Cross" (2010) and "Charlemagne: The Omens of Death" (2013).
