People are seriously happy that someone who seemed to always be a fan of the series is getting a role in the latest incarnation.
And Glover has always been a fan. "I mean, I grew up on it," he told Time Magazine in August. "My dad was a big fan. I had all the toys when I was little. I had a Darth Vader with the lightsaber he has. It was cool. It’s a dynasty. It’s like the bible. I love that franchise."
Moral of the story: "Follow your dreams guys anything is possible."
