Samuel L. Jackson - who played Mace Windu in the Star Wars prequels - has revealed that he is still unsure whether or not J.J. Abrams has left space for him in the upcoming Star Wars: Episode VII.
The thesp said that despite dropping some not-so-subtle hints to Abrams that he wants in on Episode 7, once he saw Disney had begun holding auditions again, he lost a little hope. He said:
I pretty much hinted to JJ that I wanted to be in the film at ' wedding, and he was kinda like, 'Mmm', that was about the most I got out of him.
In the interview on the Late Show with David Letterman, Jackson also revealed that and haven't been approached to reprise their roles of Luke Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi:
I asked Mark if he'd heard from and he said, 'No', and then all of a sudden, Ewan was there [in London] and I spoke to him on the phone, asked him if he was there doing Star Wars. He said, 'No, they haven't called me.'
But there's life in the old actor yet! Jackson continued:
I was thinking, maybe all three of us could just get together and go over to the Star Wars set and just stand around and see if maybe they could use some old Jedi!
I'd love to see Jackson back as the new Sith Master. But, frankly, as long as the Robert Pattinson-as-Jar-Jar-Binks rumors don't transpire, I'll be happy.
What do you think? Should Jackson, Hamill and McGregor have an appearance in Star Wars: Episode VII — The Force Awakens? Or are you looking forward to seeing some fresh franchise blood? Sound off with your comments in the comment section below!
