Did anyone catch Ewan last night on the Tonight Show? I just happen to catch a commercial that he was going to be on so I lucked out.

He didn't really talk much about the franchise or EP2 in particular. Maybe later next year. They mostly chatted about their mutual fondness for motorcycles and the rerelease of Moulin Rouge. They had some footage of OB1 singing from the movie. He actually sounded pretty good.

The one thing that I didn't like was from Leno. When he asked Ewan about the whole SW phenomenon, Ewan commented that he thought it was neat to have little kids come up to him and ask for autographs or other stuff, but it was kind of different when adults do the same thing. Then Leno made the comment that adults SW fans were only into the movies and nothing else. That's not exactly true. I also enjoy the toys, the music, the books, the comics, etc. ;)

I saw it as well, and found it funny. MC, I like your point about also being into the toys, music, etc . . . ! ! !

I thought it was pretty funny when Ewan asked the animal wrangler if he ever wrestled a one eyed trouser snake.

D'OH! :eek: I guess I missed that part. Did he also call the guy a wanker?

No, I don't recall him pointing out what a wanker that guy was . . .
But on his recent appearance promoting AOTC, Ewan had some good quips - I think I taped it, let me work on gathering some quotes. :D
