George Takei announces he’s going to be playing a Jedi in Star Wars Episode VII. I wish this were real.
Just after midnight last night, George Takei made an announcement on Facebook that he was going to be playing a Jedi in Star Wars Episode VII. Sadly, this turned out to be a joke… a very, very cruel joke. I actually got really excited for a minute until I realized what day it was. Damn, Takei would make a cool Jedi.
In addition to today being some sort of pot-smokin’ holiday, there’s also a number of prominent birthdays to be had. Today is the birthday of Adolph Hitler, George Takei, Joey Lawrence (whoah!), Clint Howard, Crispin Glover, Luther Vandross and Jessica Lange.
