George Lucas on The Colbert Report!

George showed up – SURPRISE – as one of the two finalists in Colbert’s Greenscreen Challenge. (See an entry montage) Colbert introduced the first clip, with the creator, Bonnie (not that Bonnie) on the phone, and then announced that the creator of the second clip, one ‘George L.’ was with them in the studio.

The clip was footage from the the opening ROTS battle, with Stephen, battle droids, and a very special guest. You can watch it on Comedy Central’s site or

Alas – George lost, puppydog eyes and all. He hung out for the rest of the show, both of them holding in the laughs only slightly better than Horatio Sanz on SNL, and ended with a heroic lightsaber duel. Who won? George. I believe that’s the first time Colbert let a guest win anything.

I’ll keep an eye on Youtube for more clips, but right now there’s not much there. Pirates, where are you when I need you? Slacking. How typical.

  1. LMAO! I don’t know who I love more right now, Stephen or George. Well played, LFL!

  2. Yeah got a little twitchy when I heard Colbert say my name. Too bad it wasn’t me. But then again, the last thing I want to do is beat GWL out of a trophy!

  3. Yes, but does John Scalzi classify this as entertainment? I need to know before I can enjoy it.
