Jimmy Smits Doesn't Know He's Dead in Star Wars, Wants to Reprise Role

Jimmy Smits Doesn't Know He's Dead in Star Wars, Wants to Reprise Role

Despite being blown up with the entire planet of Alderaan in Star Wars: Episode 4, Jimmy Smits is willing to reprise his role as Princess Leia's adoptive father Bail Organa in Episode 7.



Source: Spinoff

In an interview with CBR's Spinoff, actor Jimmy Smits expressed interest in reprising his role as Bail Organa in Disney's upcoming Star Wars: Episode 7. Smits last appeared in Star Wars: Episode 3 - Revenge of the Sith, but in the original Star Wars movie, Episode 4: A New Hope, Organa was presumably killed with the Death Star obliterated the planet Alderaan. Undeterred, Smits told Spinoff, "my character was gone after episode whatever. If they want to call, let them call."

Of course, Smits statement could have absolutely no meaning in the grand scheme of things. Or, it could be that Disney intends to completely screw with Star Wars continuity, sending internet fanboys into fits of nerd-rage not seen since the Hostess Bakery filed for bankruptcy, endangering the community's future supply of Twinkies and Ho-Hos. Here at The Outhouse, we choose to believe the latter, as it would be more entertaining to write about.

No word yet on whether Sir Alec Guinness woudl be willing to reprise his role as Obi Wan "Ben" Kenobi in future episodes, but if being deceased in the Star Wars universe isn't going to stop characters from appearing, we don't see why it would stop being deceased in real life should either.

Rumor has it that Peter Cushing is angling for a role.

I saw no body.

Cloned. Teleported to safety. Time-displaced.
Lots of way to get around being "dead" :P

Yeah, let's make sure and include a 90 year old Bail Organa for some more riveting political scenes. :lol:

Yeah, but they need to find a REALLY GOOD explanation for where he was in Episodes IV, V and VI...

He was on Alderaan.

He got off before it was blown up.

There you go. :smt102

I actually don't give a shit about Jimmy Smits or Bail Organa, but still. :lol:

He's a Senator. He spends a lot of time in the Coruscant. Or maybe he was imprisoned somewhere for his Rebel sympathies.

It's crazy enough to work. Hell, Earl McGraw was killed in From Dusk 'Til Dawn, but he kept showing up in other movies. :lol:

In his defense, was ANYONE really paying much attention to who they were playing in the Star Wars prequels? Especially after the first one, and the birth of Jar Jar Binks.
