13 Dwarves and a Hobbit


Graham Norton: Isn’t there a thing about your lightsaber being a different color? Is that story true? 
Samuel L. Jackson: The purple lightsaber? Yeah—You know, when I first got [the role of Mace Windu in Star Wars], I didn’t know what I was gonna do. When I said I wanted to be in Star Wars, George invited me over to the ranch and I told him, “Look. I just want to be in your movie. I’ll be a Stormtrooper, you put me in one of those white suits, I’ll run across the screen. Nobody needs to know that but me. And I’ll be happy.” He said, “No, we’ll figure out something.” So I got over here and he made me a Jedi. And I did some scenes with Yoda, and I did some scenes with Liam, and everything was great. Then I came back the next year, glad they didn’t kill me off. There was this big arena. Fight scene. With all these Jedi and they’re fighting or whatever. (x)

Apparently Judi Dench got bored one day and they created a Les Mis barricade character for her in  May 2004 for just one performance.

Holy shit that must have  been hilarious to see.

Here’s a picture:


Dame Judi Dench in Les Mis (May 2004)

"As the show started, the announcement was made: ‘At tonight’s performance the role of Javert will be played by Nic Greenshields, the role of Enjolras will be played by Alexis James, and in Act Two in the barricade scene Dame Judi Dench will appear as Madam Lafarge’.

"And, indeed, Dame Judi appeared in a suitably drab costume and mob-cap. She handed some ammunition up the barricade; she helped tie Javert to the chair; she was then hit by a flying bullet and sank dramatically over a table and was then helped offstage by one of the chorus. In total - say just under two minutes onstage!

"Dame Judi is appearing in the theatre next door and apparently has some 45 minutes between scenes. Yesterday she popped next door and said it would be fun if she could walk on at the start of the barricade scene since she had the time available and is a great fan of ‘Les Mis’. They had a quick five minute rehearsal between shows yesterday and tonight - on she went."

“ Great people do things before they’re ready. They do things before they know they can do it. And by doing it, they’re proven right. Because, I think there’s something inside of you—and inside of all of us—when we see something and we think, “I think I can do it, I think I can do it. But I’m afraid to.” Bridging that gap, doing what you’re afraid of, getting out of your comfort zone, taking risks like that—THAT is what life is. And I think you might be really good. You might find out something about yourself that’s special. And if you’re not good, who cares? You tried something. Now you know something about yourself. Now you know. A mystery is solved. So, I think you should just give it a try. Just inch yourself out of that back line. Step into life. Courage. Risks. Yes. Go. Now. ”
