Princess Leia herself, Carrie Fisher will be at Celebration IV! Several other guests have also been confirmed: Kenny Baker (R2-D2,) David Prowse (Vader,) Garrick Hagon (Biggs,) Paul Blake (Motti) and more.
Rueters describes Carrie Fisher’s one-woman show as “watching a Wikipedia article come to life.”
Carrie Fisher has had, if nothing else, an interesting life. Or, at the very least, a lot of excuses to buy formal gowns while introducing George Lucas at awards ceremonies.
She has decided that now is the time to share her funny on stage in a bit of a variety act.
If you’re in the LA area, let us know if you go see it!
Gossip from Carrie Fisher’s 50th birthday party. George Lucas was in attendance – guess what his gift to Carrie was?
Associated Press: Carrie Fisher among the celebrities to roast Jane Fonda.
Sydney Morning Herald: Interview with Susie Porter, who played the waitress at Dex’s Diner in Attack of the Clones
Variety blogger Army Archerd interviews Mark Hamill and gets the scoop on some oh his upcoming projects.
Natalie Portman is being tracked all over Toronto, where she’s filming Mr. Magorium’s Wonder Emporium. The blog in question, Jaunted, claims the updates aren’t in real time, but still, kinda over-the-top.
No less weird, but not quite so creepy: The piano for a track on James Blunt’s album was recorded in Carrie Fisher’s bathroom.
Not so, I lie!
Comic Continuum has pictures of James Marsters from Smallville’s next (October 20th) episode. They also have a description of the October 27th episode, which has Carrie Fisher guest starring as the editor of The Daily Planet.
(I’ve heard Smallville is really, really awful this year, but what else is new? It can’t be any worse than The O.C., right? Please, someone tell me I’m right.)
In other SW guest star news, Comic Continuum also reported that Mark Hamill will be voicing the Trickster on an upcoming episode of Cartoon Network’s Justice League Unlimited. Hamill infamously played the Trickster in the short lived live-action Flash TV show starring Dawson’s dad, and (of course) voiced the Joker for Batman: The Animated Series. I’d link pictures, but you’re probably off just renting Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back for your Hamill-in-spandex fix.
The cover of the next “Vanity Fair” will feature Uncle George amidst the casts of all six movies. It hits newsstands on January 11th.
You can see the whole picture here (with some character spoilers). Um… wow!
