Personal Quote:

[on his Jar Jar Binks character representing a black slave stereotype] You know what? You have got to check your head and examine your own beliefs. Jar Jar is an orange frog. Heads need to relax. That shit is crazy . . . I just thought I was doing a funny role. I didn't know that the Jedi were a metaphor for the Man. See more »
