It’s no secret that I adore Ben Mendelsohn. He’s a phenomenal actor (Rogue One, Bloodline, Animal Kingdom, Starred Up, Slow West) and, on top of that, in every interview I see, he’s ecstatic about each opportunity he’s gotten, grateful to be a part of every project, and so genuine and happy. This chat with Jimmy Kimmel is the perfect example: when he’s asked about being in a Star Wars movie, Mendelsohn goes positively giddy …
… and fanboys all over the place about growing up with the first movie, and his trading cards…you can’t help but beam right alongside the actor. His eyes twinkle and he’s practically bursting to answer Jimmy’s questions, but mostly does a whole lot of this:
I promise you’ll smile the whole way through. Just watch (and tell me if you figure out his screeching-through-closed-lips answers)!
BUT, FOR REAL, IS HE CONNECTED TO OBI-WAN???!!!!
