Ewan McGregor: 'I'd be happy' to return to 'Star Wars' if asked

Don't worry, casting directors on the next three "Star Wars" pictures -- if you need Ewan McGregor, he'll be there for you.

The actor, who played Obi-Wan Kenobi in the first three prequels in the series (the character was played by Alec Guinness in the second three films, which were actually released first) told Digital Spy that he'd step into the part again (despite the character's having been killed off in "Star Wars IV: A New Hope").

"I guess, yeah, of course," he said when asked about the reprisal. "I mean, if they need me, yeah, I'd be happy (to return)."

That said, he has no inside information to share about whether the next three films in the series will even use Obi-Wan. "I know nothing about it, other than what I've read on the internet," he said.
