Ham Solo

Doncha hate it when your nerdish friends quote their favorite bits from the Star Wars trilogy (the original, not the execrable prequels)? You know the scenes... the Mos Eisley cantina, the trash compactor, "I am your father." While such mimicry seems irritating coming from our über-geek pals, it's kickass coming from the craw of Canadian actor Charles Ross when he reenacts the blockbuster space-opera troika for the One-Man Star Wars Trilogy, complete with vocal renditions of sound effects and soundtrack. Ross finishes his Force-filled run on Sunday, November 11.
