Beast Mode brought a little bit of Oakland to the Empire, making the man who used to be Anakin Skywalker sound a whole lot different than he usually does.

Now playing for the Raiders, All-Pro running back Marshawn Lynch got to visit the Industrial Light & Magic and Skywalker Sound offices during an episode of his Facebook reality show (yeah, that’s a thing) No Script. After messing around in VR, Lynch sat down with supervising sound editor/designer David Accord to do some voiceover work for the Dark Lord of the Sith.


The results are a hilarious contrast to the iconic James Earl Jones deliveries we all know and love. I was really, really hoping that Marshawn would work “run through a motherfucker face” in there, though.

Video games. Comic books. Blackness.
