Mark Hamill wanted Luke Skywalker to go to the Dark Side

Everyone loves that Luke Skywalker followed the light and didn’t go dark like his father. However, if the actor had his way, it would have been a different story.

Yesterday when the beloved actor was on The Tonight Show, he told Jimmy Fallon he went to George Lucas with that idea. “I pitched that to George because I thought that’s the way things were going in Empire [Strikes Back]. I’ve got the gloved hand, and I was dressed all in black,” he said. “But actually, George said, ‘No, it’s a fairytale for children. Luke is virtuous. He’s the good guy.'”

Do you wish Hamill got his way?

Now back to Luke’s severed hand, the actor also revealed something you didn’t know about it. In the original opening to Star Wars: The Force Awakens, the movie was going to start off with the appendage floating in the air holding a lightsaber. Then when it hit the atmosphere, the skin and bones were supposed to melt away, leaving just the lightsaber to float into nothingness. That means he would have opened and closed the movie. However, it did not happen.

While Hamill is very fluent in Star Wars, the same cannot be said about his knowledge of two of the other roles that he plays. Those roles are The Joker and Skeletor. Watch him fail at answering those questions.

His getting those answers wrong made me adore him even more. Seriously, besides Darth Vader, who doesn’t love him?

Jimmy Fallon and Lin-Manuel Miranda’s ode to Broadway’s return
June 9th, 2021 under Broadway, Jimmy Fallon, Lin-Manuel Miranda. [ Comments: none ]

Lin-Manuel Miranda is promoting his movie In the Heights. It is a movie that never would have been had it not started out as a Broadway musical.

For the first time, Broadway needs him more than he needs it. Therefore, yesterday when he was on The Tonight Show, he and Jimmy Fallon paid tribute to the Great White Way returning in September.

So, the two men called their famous friends up, reworked Hamilton’s You’ll Be Back, and performed a song and dance number that is worthy, of well, Broadway. September can’t come soon enough.

Jimmy Fallon has five more years of Tonights
May 18th, 2021 under Jimmy Fallon. [ Comments: 1 ]

NBC is so happy with the ways things are going with The Tonight Show that they asked Jimmy Fallon to stick around for five more years.

I don’t think it is a bad decision. He is safe, and he gets the guests. Even though his ratings are down, I expect them to go up again. Late night is still adjusting to a world post the Trump era. That was comedy gold for them. Not for me, but them.

I don’t know how anyone can watch the unfunny Stephen Colbert. I have tried, and my wanders shortly after I hit play. I also think that Jimmy Kimmel will not renew his contract with ABC when it is up. Now that Conan O’Brien’s show on TBS is ending, Kimmel is the longest-running late night host on broadcast TV.

Do you think NBC made the right choice?
