"ONE MAN DIED FOR ALL"

Date

November 23rd, 2016

Summary

A graceful skyscraper twinkles in the evening light of Coruscant.

Guests

Tony Consiglio

Notes

Film

  • Wipe to Coruscant apartment complex.
  • First appearance of Hayden Christensen's Anakin.
  • First appearance of "Obi-Jesus"

Podcast

  • Lack of applause shots in AOTC as opposed to in the Original Trilogy.
  • This scene in the elevator was added much later, after the first cut of the film was already complete. It was supposed to establish Anakin and Obi-Wan's relationship.
    • The scene is awkward and forced, which is odd because Hayden Christensen and Ewan McGregor had been acting together for the whole movie - shouldn't they have developed a rapport by now?
  • Jedi fashion.
Rigorous casting process for the Role of Anakin

  • Christensen won out because he had an Inner Darkness about him.
  • Who were some of these other 1499 actors that didn't make the cut? Will Disney be releasing any of this footage? Probably for purchase.
  • Mentioned: You'll be dead!, Too old.
  • Hayden Christensen's acting and other roles.
    • Referenced: Bailey Quarters from the show "WKRP in Cincinnati".

Meta Minute

  • 27:40 podcast episode length.
  • Anakin was born 41 years BBY, and the events of this movie take place in 22 BBY, so he is 19 years old.
  • On the date this episode first aired, the 20th anniversary of Attack of the Clones (which was first released May 16th, 2002) was precisely 2000 days in the future (just under 5½ years).
  • Christensen was never in a movie directed by Woody Allen, but he was in "Love and Betrayal: The Mia Farrow Story" a miniseries about Mia Farrow's relationship with Woody Allen.

Actors who have played Darth Vader/Anakin Skywalker

(Potential Rogue One spoilers) (Default sort is by order of appearance)

2 James Earl Jones Voice of Darth Vader

5 Sebastian Shaw Face of Darth Vader and Force ghost
6 Jake Lloyd Young Anakin Skywalker
7 Hayden Christensen Adult Anakin Skywalker, body of Darth Vader in Revenge of the Sith, and Force ghost in Return of the Jedi Special Edition.

Samuel L. Jackson

  • Samuel L. Jackson was 67 when this episode aired. By contrast, Michael Caine was 83.
 Tony tells the story of how he met Samuel L. Jackson:
  He worked in a sports store stringing tennis rackets.
  The machine was right in the front window where he was on display like a store mannequin.
  In walks Sam Jackson, dressed as Shaft (which was filming a few doors down) and he bought a tennis racket and some golf balls.
  Tony told him that he loved him in Star Wars because he acted with Yoda and in a movie where he was stabbed to death.
  • The movie Tony is trying to remember is One Eight Seven (1997) where he plays Trevor Garfield, a high school teacher at a troubled school. He survives the shanking he receives, but is later killed in a game of Russian roulette.
    • Samuel L. Jackson has acted in 144 films since 1972, and has averaged nearly 4 per year during that time. In his most productive years (1990 and 1996) he was in 7 films.
  • According to Sam Jackson (with the ambivalence if not support of George Lucas), his character Mace Windu survived the prequels[1]. This would play into the "Windu is Snoke theory" that some people have been kicking around. But since George is no longer involved with Star Wars, is this canon?

Quotes

  • Pete: You know what? He [Hayden Christensen] is a handsome young man. Tony: He's not... he's not ugly.
  • Tony: He was in a film called 90 Minutes in Heaven. I used to play that in high school <rim shot>.
  • Alex: I remember that movie [Jumper] existed too!
  • Pete: (as Tony, to Samuel L. Jackson) I love that movie where you got stabbed to death
  • Pete: (still as Tony) You know that these balls don't go with this racket?
  • Alex: My money's on Fisto. Pete: Always bet on Fisto.
