Welcome to the Legion!

I’ve been lucky enough to be a guest on Nerd Alert a number of times, but this is my all-time, hands down favorite clip. To celebrate the end of 2014, I present to you, the recreation of the Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back dinner scene from the recently rediscovered original script from Leigh Brackett (The Big Sleep), who sadly passed away before she could do another draft.

Today we have a dramatic reading of the original scene by myself, host Kim Horcher and former Mythbuster Grant Imahara. Kim plays a very drunk Han Solo, Grant plays both Darth Vader and Lando, and I play Princess Leia. What? You thought I’d play something else?

Check it out below and Happy New Year! May the Force be with you!
