Samuel L. Jackson is keen to star in 'Star Wars Episode 7'.

The 63-year-old actor played Jedi Master Mace Windu in original director George Lucas's three prequels and has revealed he is ''geeked'' about there being more installments as there is a chance for his character - who was sent plunging to his death out of a chamber window by Senator Palpatine in 'Revenge of the Sith' - to make a dramatic return in the Disney sequels.

Speaking from the Spike TV Video Game Awards in Culver City, California, on Friday (07.12.12), Samuel told E! News: ''[I'm] totally geeked by the idea of there being more 'Star Wars'. It's like, okay, Obi-Wan was dead when episode four started, so maybe everyone thinks I'm dead and we'll find out what happened to Mace Windu.

"In my contract I asked to get one of everything that's made… famous last words. I thought that I didn't want to have go out and buy the soundtrack and buy the t-shirt so they agreed.

Bettany Almost Jailed After French Airport Mix Up


Paul Bettany Luke Skywalker Star Wars Jennifer Connelly

Paul Bettany's son STELLAN almost landed the British actor in a French jail cell on Wednesday (29NOV06) after convincing airport authorities he was Luke Skywalker.
The three-year-old Star Wars fanatic baffled airport security when he insisted he was Luke and Bettany was super-villain DARTH VADER.
Bettany's wife and Stellan's mother Jennifer Connelly reveals, "They were in Nice and they were coming home and they got to the airport and went to passport control and Stellan has an American passport and Paul has a British passport.
"Stellan's photo was taken when he was about a week old and he's now three years old, so it's completely unrecognisable.
"So they march up to passport control and Stellan announces, 'I'm Luke,' and the woman at passport control goes, 'Excuse me.'
"She brings someone else over and they ask again, 'Who is this person? Is this your father?' and he goes, 'No, that's not my daddy.' And then they call the police.
"They said, 'Well, who is this man? What is this man's name?' and he says, 'That's Darth Vader!'
"It so happened that they were , like, probably the only three people in the world who hadn't seen Star Wars, so this went on for a little while before someone finally figured it out."
