So, before I went to my parents today for Easter dinner, I happened to be watching a little bit of Jesus of Nazareth on History Channel. This was a miniseries from 1977. When Balthazar was speaking, I recognized the voice as James Earl Jones. I double checked online and indeed it was him. I then was looking up more info on the woman who played Mary, mother of Jesus. Her name is Olivia Hussey. Amongst her credits are voice work on a couple of Star Wars video games. She did a couple of voices on Force Commander, and was the voice of Kasan Moor in Rogue Squadron. So, two people with a Star Wars connection appeared in this show which originally aired shortly before the original Star Wars movie was released.

Check out Olivia Hussey's performance in the '60s movie version of Shakespeare's "Romeo and Juliet". Awsome.....and she was something like fifteen years old at the time.

How about if I reverse the i and the l and call him Blibo (pronounced Bleebo), along with his nephew Fordo. That makes it a Star Wars connection.
