Some films that Jacobi has starred in were The King's Speech, I, Claudius, Gladiator and many others. In an interview with Radio 4 (which The Daily Mail reported), Jacobi said he immediately phoned his agent when he heard news of the forthcoming sequels.

He was good in Underworld 2 for his minor role there, He could be an older Jedi or Sith.

I could see it, So i wouldn't have a problem with this.

That would be great.. but wouldn't Luke kinda have to be the oldest or most experienced Jedi?

Jedi Master!

I really want to see some new bad guys, no more Sith. The Sith story is done. Bad guys should be the remnants of the Empire - meaning mainly military characters and bounty hunters, and perhaps some Dark Jedi.

That's all well and good that you want a role, Derek.

But let's put shit in one hand, and want in the other, and see which one fills up faster.

He could be an admiral on one of the imperial Star Destroyers.
