Good News: The Very Aged Original Cast Of Star Wars Is Up To Collect a Rare Check For the Sequels

Harrison Ford is up for it.

Um, so are Mark Hammill and Carie Fisher, but of course they'd be.

5 I think Disney has a chance to make three of the best movies in the series.

Lucas didn't do himself any favors with the last three. *shudder*

7 Hammill can't play Luke Skywalker again after playing Cocknocker in "Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back".

Of course, I'm posting this for the sake of typing Cocknocker.

Cocknocker Cocknocker Cocknocker.

11 I love Star Wars, and I grew up with Harrison Ford as the leading man actor of my generation, but at the same time I'd say fuck him.

Seriously, the guy has bitched and moaned about living under the shadow of Han Solo for years and rejected every association with it, but now the possibility of a Disney paycheck pops up he's all 'open' about it?

jeezus, have you seen Mark Hamill lately? Not exactly someone a camera should be pointed at.

Recast all the roles!

13 Soooo - do we get Pres. Obama as a new Jedi Knight? /snarc

19 Watching Obama's victory speech. And I'm reminded of the one good line from the prequels:

"So this is how liberty dies... with thunderous applause."

20 I remember Ford making a joke years ago about appearing again, and being in an anti-gravity wheelchair.
