    Default I just interviewed Mark Hamill!!!

    I just scored an interview with Mark Hamill! I'm in such geek heaven! We chatted for about 15 minutes (ten of which went on the air) about his work on Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi! The piece was an homage to Bob Anderson, the hollywood stuntman and swordmaster who played Darth Vader and was also in films with Erol Flynn and choreographed the fights in Princess Bride, Lord of the Rings and so much more.

    I learned all sorts of cool factoids like the reason that there was less acrobatics in the first Star Wars movies was because Lucas believed that the light sabres were forty or fifty pounds and would require the fighters to use two hands.

    Such a wonderful interview.... It may not be available through the web until Monday.

    The Force is strong with me!!!!

    Will do. Still can't really believe that I got him. Sometimes, if you shoot for the moon you land on the death star!

    Crazy thing is he told me that he had turned down CNN, ABC and a whole host of others to do this with me and then asked if we had wide coverage because he hoped they could pull clips from our interviews!

    Argh... the web folks are being quite slow.

    I downloaded a copy from work and slapped it onto one of my own websites. It may not be artfully done, but for those who'd like to hear it... I believe it is there.
