"Legends of Tomorrow" Destroy George Lucas's Career
Entertainment Weekly reports that a young George Lucas will appear in episode 209 of DC and the CW's superhero series Legends of Tomorrow." Executive Producer Marc Guggenheim spoke to EW about what we can expect.
“Because of circumstances, the time aberration in episode 209 is George Lucas quits film school. 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.”
“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. 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,” Guggenheim continued.
George Lucas will be portrayed by Matt Angel for the episode. His other work includes television shows "Sweet / Vicious" and "Grimm."
