"I played with two lines of action figures when I was a kid: G.I. Joe and Star Wars. By the way, because we didn't have a lot of money, I used to steal them. I'd just rip open the packages and shove 'em in my pockets ... like a lot of kids. I got caught a couple of times, got my ass kicked by my parents.
So when I got the call saying, 'How do you feel about becoming the leader of the G.I. Joes?', it was like if I got a call from George Lucas saying, 'I want you to be in Star Wars' ... I'm gonna call J.J. and you're gonna help by printing it and I'm gonna be in Star Wars!"
He is a great actor. I believe I like all his movies except for the fairy thing. Why not, he would be a great presence. Only as a bounty hunter, smuggler, or some kind of general or something. Not a Jedi. In my mind that just does not work. Is'nt he gonna play a Klingon in Star Trek:In to Darkness? I heard he was a while back. If so nothing is sacred anymore.
I'd be fine with this also. He's a good multi-purpose actor, which is an asset for something like Star Wars which can turn on a dime between action and comedy... or descend into an outright farce occasionally, as the prequels did.
Rock wouldn't be any more out of place in a Star Wars movie than Sam Jackson was, so go for it I say. This might even increase my interest a bit knowing that Star Wars VII could be more than just a reunion film. Not to mention it would get him away from the ring for a while.
...even if a Star Wars appearance means that Rundown sequel I want will take even longer. Bah!

Bah gawd! Bah gawd! Rock Bottom! Rock Bottom! Captain Rock with the Rock Bottom on the Romulan Praetor! Bah gawd, King! He's whippin' that Romulan like a government mule!
Not sure why this is surprising. That's how Sam Jackson got in the prequels. Just said he wanted to be in them, with his own unique color lightsaber. Done.
He also said he would work for free. I wonder if he did?
