  • James Earl Jones is a distinguished African American actor instantly recognizable for his deep, resonant Shakespearean voice and wide smile. The son of prizefighter and actor Robert Earl Jones, he was raised on a farm. In college, he briefly studied medicine but switched to drama. After serving with the Army he enrolled at the American Theater Wing in New York. He made his Broadway debut in 1957, then went on to appear in many plays before spending several seasons with Joseph Pap's New York Shakespeare Festival. Jones' biggest success onstage was as the star of The Great White Hope on Broadway (1966-68); for his work (portraying heavyweight champion Jack Jefferson) he received a Tony award. He had a small part in Stanley Kubrick's Dr. Strangelove (1964), but did not begin to appear onscreen much until the '70s. In addition to stage and occasional film work, he also appeared as an African chieftain in the TV series Tarzan and was one of the first black actors to be cast as a regular on the soap opera The Guiding Light in 1967. Reprising his stage role, he received a Best Actor Oscar nomination and won a Golden Globe award for his work in the screen version of The Great White Hope (1970) and went on from there to have a busy screen career. He starred in the TV series Paris in 1979-80. Beginning in 1977, he provided the melodiously wicked voice of the villainous Darth Vader in the three Star Wars films. Since then he has continued to appear on screen (over 40 films to date), stage, and television. He also continues to provide voiceovers (he can frequently be heard on the CNN television network). His portrayal of the grouchy, reclusive writer opposite Kevin Costner in Field of Dreams (1989) is among his most notable turns. In 1987 he won another Tony Award, this time for his portrayal of a frustrated baseball player in August Wilson's Fences. Most recently, Jones provided the voice for Mufasa, the regal patriarch in Disney's animated film The Lion King (1994).

Luke Skywalker

The Emperor
Yes...he would make a great asset. Can it be done?
Darth Vader
He will join us...or die...
Darth Vader (voice)
Don't get too proud of this technological terror you've constructed. The ability to destroy a planet is insignificant next to the power of the force.
Darth Vader (voice)
Your lack of faith disturbs me.
Darth Vader (voice)
You're powers are weak, old man. Obi wan: You can't win , Darth. If you strike me down, I shall become more powerful than you can possibly imagine.
Darth Vader (voice)
You're powers are weak, old man.
Ben Obi-Wan Kenobi
You can't win , Darth. If you strike me down, I shall become more powerful than you can possibly imagine.
Moff Jerjerrod
As I tell you, this space station will be operational as planned!
Darth Vader
The Emperor does not share your optimistic appraisal of the situation.
Moff Jerjerrod
But he asked the impossible, I need more men.
Darth Vader
Then perhaps you can tell him when he arrives!
Moff Jerjerrod
The Emperor's coming here?
Darth Vader
That is correct, Commander. And he is most displeased with your apparent lack of progress.
Moff Jerjerrod
(Nervously) We shall double our efforts!
Moff Jerjerrod
[nervously] We shall double our efforts!
Darth Vader
I hope so Commander, for your sake, the Emperor is not as forgiving as I am.

They were the police, jury and executioners, all in one. They were the Judges.

Luke Skywalker
No...thats not true..THATS IMPOSSIBLE!
Darth Vader
Search your feelings you know it to be true!
Darth Vader
NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!

Darth Vader
No!
Cleo McDowell
I'll let him know you're here!

Ben Obi-Wan Kenobi
Only a master of evil, Darth.

Sarabi
Your son is awake. [talking in her sleep]
Mufasa
Before sunrise, he's your son...(Talking in his sleep)
Mufasa
Before sunrise, he's your son. [talking in his sleep]
Mufasa
Remember who you are.
Darth Vader
Obi-Wan never told you what hapenned to your father?
Darth Vader
If only you knew the power of the Dark Side. Obi-Wan never told you what happened to your father.
Luke Skywalker
He told me enough... he told me YOU have killed him!
Luke Skywalker
He told me enough! He told me YOU killed him!
Darth Vader

Mufasa

Simba

Mufasa

Simba
We're pals, right?
Mufasa
Right.
Simba
And we will always be together, right?
Mufasa
Simba, let me tell you that my father told me. Look at the stars. The great kings of the past look down on us from those stars.
Simba
Really?
Mufasa
Yes. So whenever you feel alone, just remember, that those kings will always be there to guide you... and so will I.
Mufasa
Everything you see exist together in a delicate balance. As king, you need to understand that balance, and respect all the creatures, from the crawling ant to leaping antelope.
Simba
But Dad, don' t we eat the antelope?
Mufasa
