Christian Bale Open To Star Wars

Christian Bale is open to playing a role in Star Wars.

The actor who is known for playing Batman in the Christopher Nolan The Dark Knight Trilogy spoke with The Hollywood Reporter about his latest project, Amsterdam, and was asked about still having a desire to do Star Wars someday.

“All I ever wanted in Star Wars was to be in a Star Wars outfit and hit my head on a door or something as I walked through,” Bale said.

“The real nerds who watched Star Wars way too many times always knew about that one scene where the Stormtrooper hits his head on the door as he comes through. I wanted to be that guy. That was it,” added Bale. 

“But look, if I’m fortunate enough to be more than that, oh man, yeah. What a delight that would be. I’ve still got the figures from when I was little,” he said. “I also know Kathy Kennedy very well because she was working with Spielberg when I did Empire of the Sun, and now, she runs the Star Wars universe.”

Stormtrooper hits head in ‘Star Wars: A New Hope’

The stormtrooper who banged his head happened in A New Hope

On the Death Star, as a group of Stormtroopers walk into a control room and one of them bangs his head on the door, where George Lucas even added a sound effect in later editions of the movie. 

George Lucas also referenced the incident in Attack of the Clones when Jango Fett enters his ship and bangs his head, as the original Stormtroopers are clones of Jango.

If Christian Bale made his way into the Star Wars universe, who should he play?
