Rumor: Smits to Strap on Light Saber

Coming Attractions (by way of IGN Movies) has scored a major coup by reporting that former "NYPD Blue" star Jimmy Smits will have roles in both upcoming "Star Wars" prequels. Coming Attractions says his role in Episode 2 will be small, rivaling that of Samuel "Mace Windu" Jackson's in "Episode 1." Smits' role in "Episode 3" is rumored to be more substantial but the tight-lipped Jedis at the Skywalker Ranch aren't confirming a damn thing. For all we know, Dennis Franz' well-publicized posterior might be cast as a young Jabba the Hutt. Anything's possible in that galaxy far, far away. (Apologies for the picture -- it's the only one we could dig up).
