Episode II Pictures: Palpatine Hit by Galactic Ass Truck

New "Episode II" pictures posted at suggest that Senator Palpatine (Ian McDiarmid), the evil politician who becomes the really evil Emperor, will have a larger, and uglier, role in the next "Star Wars" installment. One particularly gruesome close-up shows that the Senator is well on his way to becoming the hooded, lightning-hurling monstrosity revealed in "Return of the Jedi." Compare the new image with Palpatine's appearance in "Episode I" and you'll see how liver spots and evil incarnate go hand in hand.

The other interesting picture from the new scans is a shot of Padme's (Natalie Portman) apartment. Ikea's influence has spread to a galaxy far, far away.
