    He's telling this great story and Johnny almost seems to be a little dismissive of him, which is weird since he always gave a guest time to tell a good anecdote , unless he didn't like the guest that much. That wasn't the case here, I don't think, perhaps his segment was drawing to a close. Great story anyway!

    Actually I found he was rambling and I lost interest. Even the host's body language was like "ok commercial break now."

    When he says "Which small person is he?" He sounds like Obi-Wan... But the McGregor one.

    When all of the contextual/theatrical bullshit is put aside - isn't this just a full-sized human male intimidating a small-sized human male?

    They're talking about Jack Purvis, who played the chief Jawa, among other small characters.

    He's talking about Jack Purvis, the partner of Kenny Baker (R2D2), who did a comedy act together before Star Wars. He appeared in Time Bandits as Wally.

    Those were the days you will hear a great story with out plugging your new crappy movie that is coming out.
    I don't think I heard the words "Star Wars" in this video.
    Would have been great if they had that small comedian.

    The British, regardless of class, are delightful in the humor department. The Jack that Hamill was referring to was the late Jack Purvis.

    The sarcastic little comedian Hamill was talking about, was *Jack Purvis.* If you want to get an idea what he was like, watch the movies "Time Bandits (1981)" where he starred again with Kenny Baker and a whole gang of midgets, and also "The Adventures of Baron Munchausen (1988)" both by Python director Terry Gilliam.

    Thank you for this. Alec Guinness allegedly HATE Star Wars, but I don't think it was because he hated the movie or what it was about or hated the fans or was even sorry that he had anything to do with it. I think it had more to do with that being the only part he would be remembered for and he really wanted young people to have an appreciation for Shakespeare and movies based on great literature and I think he was sad to see that change. He was, at the time, one of a great generation of British actors who loved the stage and classical type roles so calm down SW fans, it was not about the movie so much as wanting young viewers to place value on the classics as well.

    All the cast members adored him and he was a very good influence on them professional wife. I think I might be a little mad too if I had played such legendary characters and only remembered for one of them

  • JustWasted3HoursHere

    Kind of a long lead-in for a short pay off. Still, I love Mark. He's a genuinely great guy who always is interesting to listen to. Saw him at Star Wars Celebration in Orlando in April and he was just as great as he always is. Never too busy or tired to talk to a fan.

    Wonder if it was Jack Purvis. Always thought he was exceptional. There is a scene in Time Bandits where he really brings it with the acting. Great in all of Gilliams work.

    He had a camel pin during BBC interview, now this one. Bet, he is a member of some secret club. No, not the I'm Luke club. Even though Luke, signifies Lucifer, the light-bearer.

    great story.. modern talk show hosts would never let a story run that long.. they'd feel the desperation to interrupt and make jokes constantly and change the subject. except Howard Stern...
