Entertainment Weekly has reported that Jack Angel will be playing a Young George Lucas in DC’s Legends of Tomorrow.
Executive Producer, Marc Guggenheim, had this comment to say about the upcoming episode.
“Because of circumstances, the time aberration in episode 209 is George Lucas quits film school,” executive producer Marc Guggenheim tells EW. “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.”
He continued his thoughts on the episode with his co producer, Greg Berlanti.
“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,” he joked. “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.”
DC’s Legends of Tomorrow will return on the CW on Tuesday, Jan. 24 at 9 p.m. ET.
