MC:-Perfect-Human-Being

DID YOU GUYS KNOW THAT MISHA COLLINS WAS UP FOR THE ROLE OF ANAKIN SKYWALKER, AND HE WAS SO EXCITED ABOUT IT BUT HE WASN’T ALLOWED TO TELL ANYBODY

SO HE WENT TO SKYWALKER RANCH FOR HIS AUDITION AN HOUR EARLY, AND THE PEOPLE THERE TOLD HIM TO TAKE A WALK AROUND THE RANCH FIRST, WHICH HE DID.

HE DECIDED TO DIP HIS LEG IN THE LAKE COZ HE THOUGHT IT WOULD MAKE A GOOD STORY WHEN HE MET WITH THE CASTING DIRECTOR AND GEORGE LUCAS.

WHEN THEY WERE READY FOR HIM, HE ENDED UP BEING TOO AWKWARD AND TOO NERVOUS TO EXPLAIN ANYTHING, SO HE WAS JUST UNCOMFORTABLY SITTING THERE IN FRONT OF GEORGE LUCAS WITH A WET LEG.

AND LATER ON, HE WENT OUT TO GRAB A BITE TO EAT, AND HE WAS JUST REALLY EXCITED ABOUT THE FACT THAT HE JUST WENT AROUND SKYWALKER RANCH AND MET GEORGE LUCAS–HE JUST HAD TO TELL SOMEBODY.

SO HE RANDOMLY TOLD SOME DUDE IN A PIZZA PLACE THAT HE WAS JUST AT AN AUDITION IN SKYWALKER RANCH.

AND THAT DUDE JUST HAPPENED TO BE THE COUSIN OF NATALIE PORTMAN, AND THAT DUDE JUST HAPPENED TO BE LIVING RIGHT ACROSS THE RANCH

THE DUDE ASKED FOR HIS NAME, SO MISHA GAVE IT, AND KINDLY ASKED HIM NOT TO TELL ANYBODY

AND WE ALL KNOW MISHA COLLINS DID NOT END UP PLAYING ANAKIN SKYWALKER

ANYWAY, IF YOU GUYS ARE INTERESTED, HE TALKS ABOUT THIS IN HIS REALLY INSIGHTFUL AND INTIMATE INTERVIEW WITH AISHA TYLER.
(It’s more than an hour long, but totally worth it. Aisha’s a great host)

HE SHARES A LOT OF GREAT “INSIDE THE ACTORS STUDIO” TYPE STORIES (childhood, insecurities, acting, experiences, views/opinions, etc) THAT ALLOW YOU AN INTROSPECTIVE PEEK OF THE MANY FACETS OF MISHA COLLINS.

I SWEAR I DIDN’T THINK IT WAS POSSIBLE TO FIND MORE REASONS TO LOVE THIS MAN, BUT I’M GLAD TO KNOW THAT I WAS WRONG.
