comments: Here's the next big thing. And it's been a long time coming. Hunky Ewan made the world notice with his great performance in the offbeat Trainspotting. But it will be his performance as Obi-Won Kenobi in the Star Wars prequal series that should cement his status as megastar. In addition to Trainspotting, the versatile Scottish actor has been seen in such films as Velvet Goldmine, A Life Less Ordinary, Brassed Off and The Pillow Book. One to watch, but then, with The Phantom Menace playing every single movie screen on the plante last summer, how could you miss him? Up next: opposite Ashley Judd in Eye of the Beholder.
