Interesting little piece of Episode II trivia up on Dark Horizons about Samuel L. Jackson and his role in the upcoming movie:
“he asked Lucas if he could have a purple light sabre at the start of the shoot. Lucas replied ‘no’ and walked away. Come the day of the shoot however, Jackson performed his first sabre scene, when they showed him the playback…there it was”. He also laughed saying that “hordes of Star Wars fans will be coming up to him asking ‘why have you got a purple sabre’ looking for some deeper meaning”.
Heh. Star Wars fans will be pondering that one for a loooong time 🙂
