Harry Potter Star Jason Isaacs has confirmed once again that he is ready to repeat the role of Star Wars rebels Villain the Grand Inquisitor in live action, should the opportunity arise. Similar to the discussion of the character earlier, Isaacs highlighted the Grand Inquisitor’s unique weapon selection as the main selling point to put him in live action, with the actor very much on board to use him himself.
“I think it was his lightsaber. I would love to use that rotating red lightsaber. I have the coolest wand in the Harry Potter world and I have the coolest lightsaber in the Star Wars world.”
Aside from being able to use a lightsaber in real life instead of seeing it play in animated form, Jason Isaacs He also provided some details on what would make him want to repeat the role all those years later, and even mentioned Mandalorian Season 2 star Katee Sackhoff and her positive experience working on the Disney + series.
“I’m open to anything. It’s always about the script. I don’t want to just show up so I can take a few pictures and attend conventions. I would love to play a role. The Inquisitor was a great role when I played it and if the Inquisitor did a great role again I would be ready. I’m not sure I have the patience of Doug Jones who plays Saru in Discovery, who was the creature in The Shape of Water and all. I know not now how many hours I would like to spend in prosthetics. But yeah, Katee had a very good time. I know Katee and I’ll say I loved being part of the Star Wars world. You invited me, even though I was just an animated character before. “
Not only did Isaacs explain his love for the character and choice of weapons, but he also stressed the importance of the script, stating that the Grand Inquisitor would have to be changed or varied in case he should reappear to save the actor from simply repeating what he did.
“It’s always the script and what you have to do. I know other socialmediagossips say, ‘I would like to see you in it’ or ‘I would like to see you in it. Most of the time, socialmediagossips want me to do something they’ve seen me do before, and they say, “There’s a character like this. Don’t you want to be in Outlander and play this and that? “And I say,” Well, not really because you’re just saying I should get that character over from The Patriot “or whatever.”
While there was no indication that the Grand Inquisitor will return in live action war of stars TV show there are several ways for him to do so, including the upcoming one Obi Wan Kenobi Series. For now, Isaacs is sticking to the “never say never” approach.
“I’m a bit caged because it could happen, I suppose.”
