Legends Of Tomorrow Casts Matt Angel As Young George Lucas
In addition to appearing in Grimm, Angel is also known for acting in different roles on R.L. Stine’s The Haunting Hour, an anthology horror series.
The actor will make his appearance on Legends of Tomorrow after the current season resumes in January. As executive producer Marc Guggenheim explained in an interview, the iteration of George Lucas that Angel will play diverges from the trajectory followed by the real-life Lucas in a major way:
“Because of circumstances, the time aberration in episode 209 is George Lucas quits film school,” executive producer Marc Guggenheim reveals in a new interview with Entertainment Weekly. “As a result, he never makes Star Wars or Raiders of the Lost Ark. As a result, Ray, who became an engineer because of Star Wars, and Nate, who became a historian because of Raiders, slowly start to lose their brilliance, because those things that inspired them to become who they are didn’t exist.”Matt Angel (Grimm) has been cast as the young Lucas, and you can bet your life that we’ll be getting a lot of Star Wars jokes here! If no one mentions the prequels though, that’s a missed opportiunity!
