Samuel L. Jackson may have been in approximately seventeen billion popular and successful films, including Disney's recent blockbuster The Avengers, but the man still has his priorities: he wants to play a role in the new Star Wars films. The actor who played Jedi Master Mace Windu recently told E! Online that he would love to appear in the new trilogy:
"I'm not surprised but totally geeked by the idea of there being more Star Wars," Jackson told E! News at the Spike TV Video Game Awards Friday. "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."
Jackson is widely cited as one of the best parts of the Prequel Trilogy, so his return to Star Wars in one form or another would undoubtedly be something that fans would welcome. Click through to E! for more of Jackson's comments about his involvement in the Star Wars saga.
