Samuel L. Jackson, who played Jedi Master Mace Windu in all three films of the Star Wars prequel trilogy, has never made it a secret that he wants to be in Star Wars. When Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace was in pre-production, Jackson told George Lucas that he wanted to be in the film, even if it was just as a stormtrooper. Though he eventually became Mace Windu and played the character's death in Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith, Jackson is ready for more. In an appearance on The Graham Norton Show in the United Kingdom, Jackson said:
- "I want to be in Star Wars now too, in J.J's Star Wars. I mean, come on. Jedi fall from incredible heights and a lot of them have lived with one hand. I think I could handle it."
Comedian Nick Frost, also a guest on the show, said Jedi "could just come back to life" by having their midi-chlorians reform, which Jackson agreed with. "They're Jedi!" he exclaimed.
Here is a clip from Jackson's appearance on the show, in which he talks about how he got his signature purple lightsaber in Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones:
