James Earl Jones retires, signs over rights to that sonorous voice to LucasFilm Ltd

There’s a sweet twist to this sad news, that James Earl Jones has retired.

Vanity Fair makes it official, the great man with the singular voice is hanging it up at 91. But Lucasfilm is passing a last big check his way as he signs over rights to the voice of Darth Vader forever.

Well done all around. Great actor, a fun and fascinating interview. Caught him on a bad day once and he was still more interesting than half the actors you meet. Caught him on a great day and he could not have been kinder or grander.
