Hayden on Clone Wars at MTV, Virgin Territory, Jumper tops DVD Charts

I've been sitting on this since last week because I didn't like the game of "gotcha" that seemed to be played by an MTV interviewer because of Hayden's response to a question about Star Wars: The Clone Wars. There have been some interesting developments since then.

MTV put up a video interview with Hayden last week (video below) that was supposed to be about the promotion of Jumper being released on DVD. As most interviews go,other topics came up and Hayden was asked if he's going to find it weird hearing someone else voice Anakin in Star Wars: Clone Wars and if he had wanted to do the voice himself. Hayden's answer seemed to show that maybe he didn't have complete information about the movie and MTV focused on that when putting up the interview. The write-up with the video article was unfair, I think.

The Answers "Wishful thinking..."

In answer to the MTV article, The commented on the interview and it's something I've had at the back of my mind for the last few months as well. The article is clearly stated as opinion so take it all, my article too, with a grain of salt. There are a lot of what ifs in the The article but knowing how secretive every Star Wars project is, I've been wondering myself if there are some surprises coming with the release of The Clone War's movie in August. Lucasfilm hasn't actually confirmed who is voicing any of the characters. Click here for article at The

The Update "I can't talk about it."

The has an update from Star Wars Weekend that is just a tad mysterious. When asked by a fan if Ewan McGregor and Hayden would be doing voices for Clone Wars, Matthew Wood would only say, "I can't talk about it". Matthew Wood is one of the voice actors listed in the cast on IMDB as the voice of General Grievious which Wood also could not talk about when asked. This is starting to sound like the mystery movie where you've already figured out the ending but you can't wait because it's gonna be good folks. You can read that article by clicking here for The

I think George Lucas is such a mischievous kid at heart when it comes to surprising fans and Hayden was smiling a little too broadly while answering that question from the MTV interviewer. Canary du jour, Hayden? A little crow later for MTV? I can but dream.

Just a little conspiracy theory to help us pass the time.
