During an appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Saturday, the comedian — who will make his highly-anticipated return to Saturday Night Live after 35 years tonight — opened up about the decision that he now regrets.
“The only movie I ever turned down that became a big hit was Who Framed Roger Rabbit,” Murphy told late-night host Jimmy Fallon.
“You were gonna be in that?” Fallon asked. “Yeah, I was gonna be the Bob Hoskins dude and I was like, ‘What? Animation and people? That sounds like bulls— to me.
One of the first cameos to pop up in The Rise of Skywalker is Supreme Leader Snoke as we learn that he is a creation of Emperor Palpatine.
With its signature breathing apparatus – which was the catalyst for James Earl Jones’ rasping performance – it’s something of a monolithic symbol from the era of the Galactic Empire, a time when Vader and Grand Moff Tarkin ruled over the galaxy with an iron fist.
Fast forward to the Sequel Trilogy, though, and that iconic accessory has been reduced to a charred pile of ash, one which we saw smashed into a million little pieces on that recent (and really rather stunning) poster for Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. But it turns out that the film will have more connections to Vader than just his helmet, as a new TV spot has surfaced today which actually lets us hear some new dialogue from the big bad, with James Earl Jones back in the role.
Emperor Palpatine is back in The Rise of Skywalker. We already knew that since we have heard his voice several times before. We still have yet to see him, but he will be fully revealed next week. With that being said, Palpatine is back in a major
“I have been every voice you have ever heard inside your head,” the Emperor said. The voice changes from Palpatine, to Snoke (voiced by Andy Serkis), to Darth Vader (voiced by James Earl Jones).
Last weekend at Comic Con Experience Brazil (Ccxp), director JJ Abrams talked about the return of Ian McDiarmid’s Emperor Palpatine and said, “That character, as you’ll see, he’s got such extraordinary power. I can’t wait for you to see how and why that character’s back and what it means for these characters.” Emperor Palpatine was revealed in the closing moments of the final trailer as Rey approaches him.
A new clip from Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, released on Thursday, surprisingly reveals a major spoiler.
In the clip, Emperor Palpatine is heard talking to Kylo Ren, saying he has been the voice in his head the whole time, likely turning him to the Dark Side.
If that wasn't a big enough spoiler, his voice changes to that of Darth Vader, so it is clear that James Earl Jones has returned to play Vader once more. The voice of Snoke, played by Andy Serkis, can be ...
More than 30 years after the original hit theaters and became a comedy classic, the actor, 58, is hard at work on production of the follow-up — and as far as Murphy is concerned, so far so good.
“I’m just over the moon with how it’s turned out,” he said of the film’s progress, while in discussion with Antonio Banderas (his former Shrek voice cast mate) for Variety‘s “Actors on Actors” video series.
Saying he and the crew behind the sequel found a “clever way

It was a big Return of the Jedi Christmas for me in 1983 and ’84. My unwrapping extravaganza involved the Ewok Village action playset, the “Rancor Monster Figure,” Jabba’s action playset, Sy Snootles and the Rebo Band figure set, and – amongst my favorites – Lando Calrissian in Skiff Guard Disguise figure.
Fast forward more than three decades, and Star Wars collectibles remain some of my favorite gifts. Whether it’s a Jedi Robe Snuggie, a Darth Vader Hallmark ornament, or countless pieces of artwork and toys, the Force is definitely strong with the goodies I acquire during the holidays.
The connection between Star Wars and the holiday gift-giving season is a prominent one for many kids going for nearly three generations, and
In The Lion King, pioneering filmmaking techniques bring treasured characters to life in a whole new way. Simba idolizes his father, King Mufasa, and takes to heart his own royal destiny. But not everyone in the kingdom celebrates the new cub’s arrival. Scar, Mufasa’s brother — and former heir to the throne — has plans of his own. The battle for Pride Rock is ravaged with betrayal, tragedy and drama, ultimately resulting in Simba’s exile. With help from a curious pair of newfound friends, Simba will have to figure out how to grow up and take back what is rightfully his. The all-star cast includes Donald Glover as Simba, Beyoncé Knowles-Carter as Nala, James Earl Jones as Mufasa, Chiwetel Ejiofor as Scar, Seth Rogen
When it comes to the Sundance Film Festival, Redford stepped down and left the Sundance organization in 1993 because he feared “that his political enemies would accuse him of using the institution as a mechanism for promoting his political agenda in the culture.” As U.S. president, Redford stayed committed to the arts by hiring acclaimed photographer Andres Serrano “to rebuild the National Endowment for the Arts following decades of reduction and
