Laga’aia talking to Lucas about live-action role?

Jay Laga’aia (Captain Typho) has told New Zealand’s Dominion Post that he has talked with George Lucas about a role in the live-action TV show which officially isn’t casting at all. Here’s a quote from the article, which appears on but not the Post’s actual web site:

“It’s one of those things that people sort of take for granted you worked on the first one, so … we’re in discussion at the moment because I’m interested in playing a couple of roles.

“You find with those sort of roles you can play different characters some are heavily made up, others aren’t.”

This whole situation is more than a little fishy, so I wouldn’t take it for granted just yet… (via)
