Slow News Day: Rare Interview Footage From Empire Strikes Back (Video)

Guess the title says it all, since tech news has gotten a little élan this weekend, might as well indulge the fanboys out there. A short video clip of rare interviews circa-The Empire Strikes Back has surfaced on a video sharing site. It’s pretty entertaining if you’re a Star Wars fan because it sheds light on the actors. Mark Hamill is such a normal guy, Harrison Ford was a carpenter before he signed up with George Lucas, and Carrie Fisher is pretty hot (when her hair isn’t done weird). Also, C3P0 speaks! The actor, not the droid. Catch the video after the jump!
