• Ian McDiarmid to Appear at Celebration VI

      Ian McDiarmid, the actor who unforgettably played the evil galactic mastermind and the ultimate villain of the Star Wars saga, will be making a rare convention appearance atStar Wars Celebration VI, appearing on-stage and signing autographs.



      In 1983, McDiarmid embodied the full depth of the dark side as the Emperor in Star Wars: Episode VI Return of the Jedi, his face hidden under ghastly makeup and his eyes concealed behind sickly yellow contact lenses. When his true face was revealed as the apparently kind and helpful Senator Palpatine in Star Wars: Episode I The Phantom Menace (1999), he projected a different kind of evil -- a subtle manipulator of galactic events, a villain hidden in plain sight. As the prequels progressed, so too did Palpatine's plans until finally, in Revenge of the Sith (2005), McDiarmid got to play evil at its fullest, and revealed the true power of Darth Sidious.

      There's a Hat in Rancho Cucamonga, but it's always hella crowded. The food is worth it, but it doesn't lend itself much to hanging out.

      How is the weather by you today?

      It was 9 degrees when I woke up this morning. Unfortunately, that's Farenheit not Celsius. If I lived in Minnesota I'd expect this, but not Maryland.
