Max Von Sydow Cast in Star Wars Episode VII

The cast for Star Wars Episode VII (I can almost write that without cringing — almost) has been announced. One of the merry band will be played by none other than Max Von Sydow.

I’m a big Max Von Sydow fan. Not a fanatic, but his presence in a film lends a certain something. This comment posted by Owmyback (great username) on io9 somewhat echoes my reaction:

Am I the only one who read this and was like “Max von Sydow is still alive?”

My thought was more along the lines of, “Max Von Sydow is still alive. Cool. And he’s going to be in the next Star Wars movie. Also cool.”

io9 commenter CindyLouCthulhu (again, great username) added the following:

The Seventh Seal must have been a true story. Dude clearly beat Death at chess.

Here is the rest of the cast that was announced today on StarWars.com:

Actors John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson, and Max von Sydow will join the original stars of the saga, Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew, and Kenny Baker in the new film.

Peter Mayhew played/will continue to play Chewbacca, Kenny Baker was/is R2D2, and Anthony Daniels played/will play C3P0. Here’s a video interview of him for your viewing pleasure:

And just for yucks, a compilation of The Best of C3P0:

So? Are we excited? Do we care? Are we becoming overwhelmed by the amount of entertainment in the world today? The answer to all of these questions is… a little bit.

Carrie Fisher Will Return To Star Wars, Is Very Funny

The always wonderful website io9 tells us that Carrie Fisher told Palm Beach Illustrated that she would indeed return to Star Wars for the upcoming movies. This is good news. It is also good news that Carrie Fisher is funny.

Quote from the interview:

Q: What do you think Princess Leia is like today?

A: Elderly.

She says more, but the abbreviated version makes me laugh. Read the whole thing here.

Here is a video of Princess Leia insulting Han Solo, because really, why not? It’s only ten seconds. Watch it.
