George Lucas is coming to Legends Of Tomorrow - sort of.
Entertainment Weekly has learned that Grimm actor Matt Angel will be playing a younger version of the Star Wars visionary in the 2016 winter premiere of Legends Of Tomorrow.
“Because of circumstances, the time aberration in episode 209 is George Lucas quits film school,” executive producer Marc Guggenheim tells EW. “As a result, he never makes Star Wars or Raiders of the Lost Ark. As a result, Ray, who became an engineer because of Star Wars, and Nate, who became a historian because of Raiders, slowly start to lose their brilliance, because those things that inspired them to become who they are didn’t exist.”
Guggenheim says the episode will be one of the most ambitious additions to the DC TV Universe.
“We were watching a cut of it, and I said to Greg [Berlanti] that 209 is either going to be the episode where we’ll say that the show found a new gear in terms of how zany it can be, or it’s the episode that’s going to get us all fired,” he says. “It really is. You’re laughing out loud, I think with it, but it’s like, ‘Are we really doing this?’ It’s the ’70s bar fight on steroids. The whole episode is that level of crazy.”
Starring Arthur Darvill, Brandon Routh, Caity Lotz, Franz Drameh, Victor Garber, Nick Zano, Dominic Purcell and Maisie Richardson-Sellers, Legends Of Tomorrow returns Tuesday, January 24th at 9pm.
