Another geeky film update: Lord of the Rings director Peter Jackson made a cameo as some bad guy who gets shot with an arrow by Legolas in The Return of the King, and now George Lucas, the "Flanneled One" according to Star Wars fans, makes a long-awaited cameo in one of his six science fantasy films by having a brief appearance in Revenge of the Sith. If you watch the film, keep an eye out for him during the “opera scene” that takes place on Coruscant (that planet covered by ‘one big city’...for those of you who slept or walked out of the last two prequels. Not to sound like a 'basher' or anything, haha). An image of the Flanneled One in costume is shown below. Sorry that the pic isn’t big enough... I stole, err, took it from another website. For meaningless trivia, his character's name is Baron Papanoida (Papa Nerd? Pop Annoyed, since Lucas has 3 kids? Just kidding). Expect a comic book series, action figure or novel to delve into his history in the near future, hahaha.
