Clayton's "Star Wars" New Hope

He said he wasn’t in it- and he wasn’t, but according to reports this week, “Matrix Reloaded” star Clayton Watson might indeed be taking up a role in “Star Wars Episode III”.

While talking to TV Week, Watson said how a phony rumour that he tied him to the next “Star Wars” movie, actually got people talking about it for real.

“Apparently they want to see more for the next Star Wars movie. A rumour got out that I was in it and it wasn’t true, but the casting director heard about it and heard what else I’d done and wants a meeting with me as soon as I get back to Australia”, Watson says.

Watson, who stars on TV series “Always Greener”, says the show’s producers will work out a way for him to do the movie, should it happen for him.

“The producers have basically said they won’t stand in the way of whatever I want to do, but there is a certain amount of loyalty to the show. If something comes up, as it did with The Matrix Reloaded, there are always ways to work around it”.
