« Reply #1 on: December 20, 2014, 09:23:46 AM »

Director Jason Reitman (son of producer Ivan Reitman) has been holding a series of live events where actors perform a live read of the scripts of famous films.  Yesterday he held a live read event of THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK.  And one of the special guest voice actors?  None other than Mark Hamill, who played Emporer Palpatine, Boba Fett and Obi-Wan Kenobi.

Some of the other cast members included:
Aaron Paul (Breaking Bad) - Luke Skywalker
JK Simmons (Oz, Whiplash) - Darth Vader
Kevin Pollack - Yoda
Rainn Wilson (The Office) - Chewbacca
Stephen Merchant (Extras, Hello Ladies) - C-3PO
Dennis Haysbert - Lando Calrissian
Ellen Page (Juno) - Han Solo
Jessica Alba - Princess Leia
Jason Reitman - Stage directions, R2-D2
