You know who James Earl Jones is right? Maybe you do, maybe you don’t. Well, even if you don’t, you almost certainly know the character he played: DARTH VADER in the Star Wars Trilogy. Or at least he played his voice. He was also Musafa in The Lion King, and the scary neighbour in The Sandlot, amongst a bunch of other roles.
Last week on the Gayle King show (who?!?) she got him to read a verse of Justin Bieber lyrics from the song ‘Baby Baby Baby.’ It kind of sounds like that stupid voice you used to be able to get on old computers speaking Justin Bieber lyrics. It’s cool. His face while he’s reading them is pretty awesome too, like he doesn’t understand what is going on at all. James Earl Jones is pretty old now though, so maybe he just genuinely didn’t understand anything that was happening. I mean I have a hard enough time understanding Justin Bieber, I can’t imagine what people his age must think.
This video is pretty funny as well, as somebody spliced the Justin Bieber lyrics into that scene in Star Wars where Darth Vader is threatening Luke Skywalker and then he falls off that massive platform. I think this probably would have made a better scene in the actual movie. It’s deep.
