Count Dracula... er, Dooku

Christopher Lee is an awesome actor... so you would think the combination of Christopher Lee and Star Wars would be equally great. Alas, there's just something about Count Dooku (aka Darth Tyrannus) that doesn't work. Maybe it's his lines? He's just too bland, too old, or something. His role in Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith was really short! There's nothing really intimidating about the character and so much potential for a really cool bad guy is wasted.

I kinda agree with you....I don't exactly know how Dooku's supposed to be like (i.e. in the novels) but for some reason my mind can't seem to agree with Christopher Lee playing a bad'o in Star Wars....it just doesn't go together. I'd think he'd fit more in a role of a Senator or something like that.

Yeah... I'm still baffled on how he got into two of the biggest movie sagas at the same time... Lord of the Rings and Star Wars. He must have sold is soul! LOL!
