Anakin Skywalker Grows Up


I'm apparently the last person on the Internet to have seen this video, but then again I spend every goddamn day of my life scouring the Internet, so if I missed it there's a chance that you might have too. It's an interview with Jake Lloyd, who played young Anakin Skywalker in The Phantom Menace, and it's utterly charming. He's totally real. I don't know whether I want to give him a hug or a high five, but either way I found the whole thing oddly moving. Maybe you will too. [Via]

"Plus, I didn't even get to bone Natalie Portman! THEY TOLD ME I WOULD GET TO BONE NATALIE PORTMAN."

Aw, sweet. And he's probably better with his arrow than he thinks.

Adorable. But I'd still like to kick that Jar Jar fag squarely in the nuts for wrecking the movie for me (and I bet that's who he's talking about at 4:10).

He can feel proud to have been in only the third-worst new star wars movie. That still makes him a Ruiner though.

The force is strong with this one. Glad to see he didn't go to the dark side.

Wait, rewind, did muhfucker just disrespect the young people? That shit cannot be allowed to stand.

nerd.

Maybe? Maybe not. I feel totally duped into wanting to like this guy, and he turns out to be a nerdouche.

Still, if there's a way to unsee this, I'd use it to unsee Phantom Menace first.
