Ewan For President! (Of The Obi-Wan Kenobi Fan Club.)

I just want to take a moment to reflect on the only actor to actually take the Star Wars prequels seriously enough to even attempt to act: Ewan McGregor. What he did with crappy dialogue should have earned him an academy award. Seriously. I have watched them hundreds of times and he's such a great actor that he's the only one that looks like he's trying or even believes in the role. I mean, he acted the crap out of those blue screen shots, just like he was really there. At times I did get the sense that he was looking around at the other actors and saying, "Isn't anyone taking this job seriously?"

Kudos to Ewan because he made Obi-Wan Kenobi an action hero instead of some old fossil that someone dug up. (Han Solo's words, not mine.)

Also, you can't say Ewan McGregor without sounding like Fat Bastard, which is just this great bonus.
