Hey, all. "Moriarty" here. I'm not going to make this long or complicated or fancy. I am on my way out the door to a screening of X-MEN, so all I have time to do is say, yes, it's true... Christopher Walken has been confirmed for STAR WARS, and the announcement should be up on the official site within days. The coolest part is that he's got a character name now... and he is Darth Bane. Seen it with my own two eyes. Pretty f'ing cool. Talk to you soon.
Hey, everyone... just walked in from my second showing of X-MEN tonight, and I'm starting to sort through the TalkBacks below. First question... when did I supposedly say this casting news somehow involved a flashback? People are complaining about things below (this means you, Lazarus) that no one ever mentioned. Let me repeat, since that long complicated paragraph above seems to have baffled some of you. Chris Walken. Darth Bane. Saw the page on the official site with the soon to be released cast list. That's it. That's all I said. No flashback... no idea who the character is. I don't read the novels, so if this means something to some of you, that's cool. Just don't start jumping to conclusions about how Bane will be used yet. Let's wait until we actually start hearing a few story details before we start railing against them. Sheesh.
