I don’t have a lot to say about Ian McDiarmid. Sure, he’s an accomplished actor on screen and in theatre. He has worked with some of the biggest names in Hollywood. He is most respected by his peers. But he is the freaking Emperor! Palpatine himself! And he played the SAME character in Return of the Jedi. That is the reason I chose him.
