Carrie Fisher Has A Few Ideas for New Star Wars

Carrie Fischer was on The Talk yesterday, eliciting so many delighted squeals from the hosts that her deadpan zingers were barely audible. Luckily everyone held it together enough for Fisher to talk about a possible role in the new Star Wars movie. "I like the idea of being Mrs. Solo, and we've just fought and fought and I've killed him," Fisher joked. "But I'm sorry! I feel badly. And I've probably had an affair with some general," she said. It's an oh-so-topical nod to the Petraeus scandal, but it got us thinking about all the possible generals Princess Leia could have had a space-affair with. This is not as easy as you think! Oh, sure, Han Solo himself eventually earns the title in the Rebel military, but most of Star Wars's "generals" are officers in the Galactic Empire — which makes them unlikely candidates for Leia's affection. Okay,we'll see ourselves out.
