David Duchovny: Jedi Knight?

An article at Empire Online says that George Lucas has asked David Duchovny to take a role in "Episode III." The article doesn't offer specifics about the role, but Duchovny's smart-assed sense of humor and ample nose would serve him well as an alien comedian or a smarmy Cantina dweller.

The Empire report is particularly interesting because Duchovny's TV partner, Gillian Anderson, was long-rumored as a cast member in "Episode II." Back in January, Dark Horizons posted an item that said Anderson would be a member of the Jedi Council in "Episode II." Further information on her casting hasn't surfaced, so her involvement in "Episode II" is still a rumor.
