http://www.smh.com.au/articles/2003/...084201265.htmlThe Sydney Morning Herald talked to Bruce Spence about the part he plays in Episode 3. Here's an excerpt:
Next month he will shoot scenes for Star Wars Episode III - the sixth and final instalment in the series - in which he plays the leader of an alien planet who harbours a fugitive Obi-Wan Kenobi.
"I'm a very benevolent person, a helpful alien the heroes need to hide with for a while," Spence explained.
"It involves an enormous amount of latex. There are no tentacles, but he is very tall and he is definitely an alien."
I think the most important question here is: At what point in this story do the heroes need to hide with this character? It mentions Obi Wan by name, but "heroes" implies at least one traveling companion.
At this point, I will guess that Obi Wan gets his fugitive status later in the film........hard to be certain though.
