"I think it's a necessity, historically, in the tradition of these films," Affleck told The Sunday Times. "For me, anger is so deeply buried and contained that when it does kind of come out, it comes out in stronger bursts. I tend to be respectful, polite, get along, put up with, put up with, put up with ... then, when it finally emerges, it's not something I have a ton of control over. I'm not gonna go into a Wolverine berserker rage, but I do have a, I do [...] That's my personality."

/Film reports a new rumor circulating that an Obi-Wan Kenobi standalone "Star Wars" film is in the works. Originating from Making Star Wars, the unnamed source states that, "For the spin-off movies they were initially going to stay away from any Jedi or Sith characters. But I'm hearing now that because of the popularity of Obi-Wan (fans recently voting for him on the official website etc) that an art team is now working with a writer on concepts for an Obi-Wan movie."

Greg Grunberg, who has frequently appeared in projects by J.J. Abrams, confirmed via Twitter that he will have some kind of role in "Star Wars: Episode VII."

Yes @smgulz it IS safe to assume I have a role in #StarWarsEpisodeVII - If I say more than that, JJ will have me killed.

Two fun tidbits from across the Internet over the weekend: The Hollywood Reporter has compiled four clips of "The Simpsons'" concert at the Hollywood Bowl, where Weird Al, Conan O'Brien, Jon Lovitz and more performed some of the most memorable tunes from the long-running series. Here's O'Brien performing the Monorail song from "Marge Vs. the Monorail," originally performed by the late Phil Hartman.

Also, "Sesame Street" decided to take on "Star Wars" -- Only One Cannoli is probably the best parody character name they've come up with yet.
