In the upcoming movie The Men Who Stare at Goats, Bob Wilton — a reporter (played by Ewan McGregor) thinks he has the story of a lifetime when he meets Lyn Cassady (played by George Clooney), a man who claims to be a former member of the U.S. Army’s First Earth Battalion — a unit that employs paranormal powers in their missions.
Based on the non-fiction book by the same name, the movie is bound to be saturated with Jedi references if it’s anything like these quotes from the trailer:
Bob Wilton: “So what you’re saying is that you were a psychic spy?”
Lyn Cassady: “A Jedi warrior.”
Lyn Cassady: “We’re Jedi. We don’t fight with guns, we fight with our minds.”
The irony that actor Ewan McGregor who played Obi-Wan Kenobi in the Star Wars Prequels is getting schooled in the ways of the Jedi by George Clooney just makes the movie that much more entertaining. The movie also gets extra points for bringing back The Dude (Jeff Bridges) in a glorious way.
