He was Wicket the Ewok in Star Wars: Episode VI Return of the Jedi, played Weazel and Wald in Star Wars: Episode I The Phantom Menace, and he’s been waiting and waiting for a call from J.J. Abrams about Star Wars: Episode VII.
The phone finally rang the other day…
Who would ever know? I mean, did anyone know the first time? He was dressed head to toe in Ewak p.j.’s… and didn’t have a speaking role. It could have been someone else that Mr. Warwick murdered and buried secretly in his backyard, in order to take the credit… Except for those who actually read all the credits at the end of films, who will know next time?
Mind you, a paycheck is a paycheck. It’s just that I don’t know why the fans would care.
