The New York Time Magazine sat down with James Earl Jones — the best parts:

You made your film debut as a member of the B-52 bomber crew in Stanley Kubrick’s “Dr. Strangelove.” How did that happen?

George C. Scott was playing Shylock in Shakespeare in the Park when Kubrick came to look him over. I was also in the play, as the Prince of Morocco, and Kubrick said, “I’ll take the black one, too.” That’s not what he actually said, but that’s the way I like to put it.

And:

You’re never tempted to pick up the phone and pretend to be Darth Vader?

I did that once when I was traveling cross-country. I used Darth as my handle on the CB radio. The truck drivers would really freak out — for them, it was Darth Vader. I had to stop doing that.

Amazing.
