Morning Roundup: Denis Lawson Has Birthday, Is Still Coolest Uncle Alive

Yesterday, actor Denis Lawson turned 65. And while this aging thing is a serious achievement; his alter-ego Wedge Antilles remains the only pilot to fly in every major air battle in Star Wars and live to tell about it. He’s also Ewan McGregor’s uncle and makes a mean mojito. (We made that last part up, but guess it’s probably true.)

Highlights of your other daily offsite links include:

  1. Patrick Stewart being awesome on The Daily Show.
  2. Mark Millar brought in as a hired consulting gun for Marvel.
  3. Elementary producer explains what the heck Elementary is.

Stubby the Rocket is the voice and mascot of Stubby is all like cut the chatter, Red 2.
