He gets to do some real sword fighting, with his hero Christopher Lee, no less, and does a lot more than sit around like he did in the last instalment, The Phantom Menace.

I had read some other stuff mentioning how Mr. Jackson considered it an honor to work with Mr. Lee. This article further proved how much respect Mr. Jackson has for him (and he is no lightweight actor himself!) And while it's true his Mace Windu got to do more in this film than the first I still came out saying that Lucas underutilized his extensive talents. I hope that in the third film Mr. Lee and Mr. Jackson will get even more screentime. That will surely enhance the last installment and make it the best of the three! (if not all six even)Smile

Mr Jackson is one of the coolest and in the same class as Mr Lee when it comes to acting. I never get tired on either Mr Jackson or Mr Lee. More of them in Episode III please.Laughing out loud
The way Mr Jackson said "Party's over" was just wonderful.

Wouldn't it be something if Mace Windu gets to die at the hands of Count Dooku in Episode III? Or vice versa...

Excellent idea SarumanRules! Seeing an intense scene like that between Mr. Lee and Mr. Jackson would surely be gripping and perhaps one of the best fight scenes ever. Let's hope that Lucas aleady thought of this and is running with it.

Well it would be nice to see...but I have a feeling that Anakin will be killing off most of the "main" Jedi characters. Such as Mace Windu, Dooku, etc. It's been told in the early Star Wars films that "Darth Vader" aka Anakin helped the Emperor hunt down and destroy the Jedi Knights. How can Anakin be the most powerful Jedi? By being the ONLY Jedi...

I have to say that I absolutely love it when well-established actors with strong credentials in their own right, admit to being starstruck by someone like Mr. Lee. While I thought that Samuel L. Jackson was woefully underused in AOTC I do consider him to be an incredibly fine actor that is always very watchable and...well...hell...he is just so cool! If Dooku and Windu end up facing-off against each other in Ep 3, I'll be damned if I know who to cheer for...

Cheers!

I think it's very cool of Mr. Jackson to think that Christopher Lee is a hero. That just shows that he appreciates Mr. Lee's acting.

I am sure Count Dooku and Mace Windu will face off in Episode 3 - but it will be Anakin who destroys Dooku so he can "take his place at the Emperor's side". Remember - there can only be 2 Sith - a Master and an Apprentice. Right now Dooku aka Darth Tyranus is the Apprentice of Darth Sidious. We know Anakin becomes Vader and is the Apprentice of Palpatine. However it happens - I am sure Dooku will go out in style!!!
