Samuel L. Jackson Wants To Return in STAR WARS EPISODE 7

At this point, I think it’d be easier to make a list of actors who DON’T want a role in the next Star Wars trilogy.

There’s the original cast, with Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill, and Carrie Fisher. All three of those actors have declared their interest in returning to the franchise, and all the latest script rumors have involved them on some level or other. Even Jeremy Bulloch, the thespian responsible for bringing Boba Fett to the big screen, wants  to re-enlist as our favorite Mandalorian assassin.

From the prequel trilogy, Ewan McGregor stated he’d love to swing his blue lightsaber around one last time as the wise Obi Wan Kenobi. I don’t think there’s any real hope for him in EPISODE 7, since his character is a blue ghost (and was only relevant while Darth Vader lived), but perhaps Disney will create a solo flick for that ol’ Jedi bastard. McGregor’s performance in the prequels was the only real reason to endure those heart wrenching, nostalgia killing flicks, so it’d be a shame not to feature him in a well direceted spin-off. Imagine how great Clone War era Kenobi would be with Matthew Vaughn behind the camera?

Besides those few, though, another actor stated that he wants to return. Nick Fury… ahem, I mean Samuel L. Jackson, said as much in an interview with E!.

“I’m not surprised but totally geeked by the idea of there being more Star Wars. It’s like, okay, Obi-Wan was dead when episode four started, so maybe everyone thinks I’m dead and we’ll find out what happened to Mace Windu. I can come back as one-armed or a one-handed Jedi that’s still around that didn’t actually die.”

As much as I love Master Windu and his purple lightsaber shennanigans, I don’t think this is the best idea. It’d be wise to give the franchise a fresh start, essentially ignoring the muddling affair of the Prequels. Though, if Disney ever comes around to producing a solo Obi-Wan flick, Sam Jackson would make a pretty awesome co-star.

What do you think?  Do you want Mace in STAR WARS EPISODE 7?  Or do you want your next trip to “a galaxy far, far away” to be free from cross contamination?

After all, Sam Jackson is pretty cool…

    I actually think Mace coming back could be really cool. As the second highest ranking member of the Jedi council I don’t think he’d be so easily dispatched of. He certainly gave Palpatine a run for his money in ROTS. Unfortunately Mace underestimated the sith lords powers and after being mutilated, electrocuted, and hurled across the Coruscant landscape the message seemed all too clear, Mace had met his end… or not. There remains the possibility that jedi master landed safely, using the last bit of force he could muster to cushion his fall. Lets face it, we all know Jedi can survive extreme amputations, insane falls, and major electrocutions so it’s not hard to believe that Mace could survive such an ordeal and go into hiding, ultimately becoming a recluse jedi who reemerges much later to help form the new republic, redeeming himself for his major oversight or lack thereof during the clone wars and the rise of the sith.

    It would be terrible bringing Mace back. I don’t want episodes 7, 8 and 9 being as god-awful as episode 1.

  • Sambo

    thats stupid he died ….. this is after episoe 6?!?!?! he would be so old. he done be dead anyways… damn ppl are stupid just pick up with the main as old parents and revolve around their children shit!!!

  • Matthew Murphy

    Um spin-off film duh!

  • Finlay

    give him the Namor losing his memory storyline, say that his particular race is long living, lived as a hermit in the lower levels of Corusant all this time, done.

    • DreFactor

      That would be a good idea. Mechanical arm and everything. It could even tie in with that new game coming out that takes place in the lower levels.
      Plus Sam could easily play an older jedi master ( no offense Sam, just sayin)

  • Blackredfeet

    Or he can come back in a jedi Holocron

  • Sean

    Why in the hell would you want him back? Mace windu is an awesome charecter. Unfortunately Sam is terrible at playing a Jedi. His acting was awful. And I like Jackson. But hes really un-athletic and in no way looked like one of the most powerful jedis of all time. Go awat Sam, you sucked

  • VoudeauxChild

    Mace was an amazing character and a great Jedi. Bring him back!!!!!!

  • Dreth

    Samuel L. Jackson shouldn’t have been in Star Wars in the first place. Besides, Lando should still be around. And you know how the Star Wars film universe feels about having more than one dark-skinned actor per trilogy.
