With less than one week to go before Celebration VI, the ForceCast welcomes David Collins to chat about his Digital Stage hosting duties, including several awesome Clone Wars themed panels and interivews. Later, Kyle Newman joins David as the pair discuss details of an all new live radio drama, set between Episodes IV and V, to be performed by several of the Star Wars Universe's top voice talent exclusively at CVI. Plus, a break down of the programming schedules for Saturday and Sunday, a Billy Dee Celebration flashback quote, and much, much more.


  • David Collins


  • Jason and Jimmy open the show by discussing their anticipation for next week's convention, Celebration VI, and Jimmy recaps his experience at Wizard World Chicago, where he took a Lightsaber Master Class with PT stunt coordinator Nick Gillard.
  • Billy Dee Quote of the Week
    • This week's quote is a flashback to Williams' CIV press conference, where he talks about Internet rumors that pop up about his life (and in this case, death).
  • Billy Dee will be playing a World War II veteran in an upcoming episode of NCIS.
  • Celebration VI Update
    • Jason and Jimmy welcome David Collins to the show to discuss his CVI hosting duties on the Digital Stage.
    • Kyle Newman joins the three to discuss his radio drama, "Smuggler's Gambit," which will star Collins as Han Solo and feature Jimmy Mac doing the sound work (including Chewbacca noises). Newman came up with the idea after hearing Collins' musical composition for The ForceCast 2011 Holiday Special. As he explains to Jason and Jimmy, he had always wanted to create something in the style of the NPR Original Trilogy radio dramas. Joining Collins in the main cast will be the stars of The Clone Wars, in addition to TCW guest star Sam Witwer (his inclusion is a ForceCast-exclusive reveal).
    • Jason, Jimmy, and Kyle go over the highlights from Saturday and Sunday's convention programming, from a preview of Episode II in 3D to Star Tours: The Adventures Continue and from Behind the Scenes of the Cantina to James Arnold Taylor and Carrie Fisher's one-(wo)man shows.
    • Jason and Jimmy recap the first five trading cards from their Series 2 set and reveal the final card: Jimmy talking to Stephen Stanton at the L.A. premiere of TCW S4.

Significant quotesEdit

  • "They can do wonders with makeup." "They're gonna have to!" -- Jimmy and Jason commenting on Billy Dee Williams' somewhat implausible upcoming role on NCIS. SponsorshipEdit
