    Yes, if he did indeed say that than Bravo for him.

    I guess light sabers can't deflect bullets, like they can laser blasts? :dunno:

    I never noticed before, but yesterday Coming To America was on. He goes in and talks with McDowell. . .

    "No. Do not alert them to our presence. I'll deal with him myself.". :rofl: never caught the SW line before.

    He really seemed to be having fun with the role. I really liked the confrontation in his apartment, and pulling out the fumigator.

    Very true quote BTW.

    Heard a long time ago that JEJ was one of us and carried a 1911.

    Vader would carry a 1911.

    Hell, Mace Windu would carry one with BMF on it.

    My favorite James Earl Jones role was his portrayal of Few Clothes in the John Sayles movie Matewan. That's a real independent film masterpiece, in my opinion.

    Love that movie. James Earl Jones is one :cool: dude. David Strathairn did a great job as Sid Hatfield too. Definitely Sayles masterpiece. :cheers:
