For years Star Wars fans could only dream about the events of the Clone Wars and Anakin Skywalker's fall from grace, as first introduced in the original Star Wars trilogy. The power of the dark side that seduced Darth Vader, the legendary piloting skills of Luke's father, it was all only spoken about, until George Lucas announced plans to finally bring Episodes I, II, and III to life, promising to show us the first meeting between Obi-Wan and Anakin and the fateful duel that turned the newly minted Darth Vader into "more machine than man." And George Lucas needed to find perfect actor to play the role. Which wasn't an easy task by any means.
There were hundreds of screen tests before Lucas enlisted young Jake Lloyd to play the future Darth Vader in Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace. To say the performance wasn't well received is putting »

What's Rachael Leigh Cook doing these days? Same old—cracking eggs to promote an important message. But this time, she's serving up a slightly different one. The 37-year-old She's All That and Perception star, who rose to fame in the '90s, reprises her role in a new "This Is Your Brain on Drugs" PSA, released Thursday—on 4/20—and 20 years after her first one. This time, she speaks out not only against drug use, but against existing drug policy in the United States. "This is one of the millions of Americans who uses drugs and won't get arrested," Cook says, holding up a white egg and putting it on a »
Daniel Gillies is perfectly happy being a father of two!
The Originals star stopped by the Et studios on Friday for a live interview and opened up about what life is like with his "beautiful" wife, Rachael Leigh Cook, and their two children, Charlotte, 3, and Theodore, 2.
"There's a lot of snatching of toys going on," the 41-year-old actor revealed with a smile.
"But [Charlotte] is a very sweet, older sister to him and she's day-by-day becoming more and more demonstrative," he said. "She'll be really sweet to my son and be like, 'Look, Daddy! Look at how great I'm being,' so that she can receive the reward later on, which is that I have to play her episodes of Dora the Explorer."
"If you're not a parent, you'll get to know Dora, trust me," he added with a laugh.

"You have to promise you won't fall in love with me."
Fifteen years ago, Mandy Moore tried not to steal our hearts in her breakout film role as the innocent, angelic Jamie Sullivan in A Walk to Remember, delivering that line to Shane West, who portrayed the popular, rebellious charmer Landon Carter.
At the time, fans only knew her as "Mandy Moore the pop star," the adorable 17-year-old bubblegum pop princess who introduced us to hits like "Candy" and "I Wanna Be With You."
While the Nashua, New Hampshire, native actually made her film debut in 2001 with a minor voice role in Dr. Dolittle 2, followed by a slightly larger role in The Princess Diaries, it was A Walk to Remember that really launched her acting career and made fans fall in love with her, forever. Yes, 15 years later, the now 32-year-old actress is still melting our hearts, now making us cry as Rebecca Pearson on [link »
Margot Robbie is a happily married woman.
The 26-year-old actress attended Marie Claire's Image Maker Awards on Tuesday -- her first public appearance since marrying her longtime love Tom Ackerley last month -- where she flashed her sparkly wedding ring on the red carpet. The Suicide Squad star looked amazing as usual in a leather Valentino outfit, honoring her makeup artist Pati Dubroff.
Et's Katie Krause spoke to Dubroff at the event, who was touched that Robbie flew in to Los Angeles specifically to support her.
"She flew in for this, yes, she's on the ground for less than 10 hours or something," Dubroff shared. "I couldn't even believe that she was adding that into her very busy life ... but that's the power of the relationship that's formed when you are a team."
And while Dubroff revealed that she didn't do Robbie's makeup on her »
