Records. The Guinness Book of World Records has named Samuel L. Jackson the world’s highest-grossing actor. His films – which include not only the prequels but other blockbusters like Jurassic Park, The Incredibles and Iron Man 2 – have brought in a staggering $7.42 billion dollars.
Strange saberfellows. Noel Gallagher of the band Oasis was a neighbor of Ewan McGregor when he got the part of Obi-Wan – and he was the first to teach Ewan how to fight with a lightsaber. “I just happened to have two of those lightsaber toys, so I said, ‘Come on – in the back garden.'”
Uh-oh. Peter Serafinowicz – the original voice of Darth Maul in The Phantom Menace – told Digital Spy that he didn’t think the film was very good. “”But it was certainly an extremely exciting thing to be a part of,” he goes on to say.

Maybe that explains why he didn’t reprise his role as Maul for TCW. (If the rumors are to be believed.)
I contacted his agent last week and he’s not doing the voice. Don’t know yet who is (although we’ve all heard the rumours)
Ya know, I like Samuel L. Jackson. He’s one of my favorite actors.
But he needs to get rid of that damn eyepatch.
Nick Fury was a white guy. With hair. I don’t even know what direction some dumbass writer decided to take the character in, but the Nick Fury I remember was from Hell’s Kitchen and liked to smoke cigars, rip up his own shirts, throw Nazis around like ragdolls with his bare hands, call his commanding officer by his first name right to his face, and get in fistfights with a particularly fat sergeant named Bull McGiveny.
To Mark, Sam Witwer will be doing the voice. Personally, I’m looking forward to it since I thought Sam did a great job with Starkiller in “The Force Unleashed” and as the Son in the Mortis trilogy of Season 3 of TCW.
