Jeff Bridges (Arlington Road): ”I don’t know, man, everyone’s talking about Star Wars.”

Julian Sands (The Loss of Sexual Innocence): ”I’m not really a sci-fi person, so Star Wars isn’t an issue. Eyes Wide Shut has to be the picture that’s most anticipated.”

William Fichtner (Contact, Go): Star Wars, Star Wars, and what’s that other one? Star Wars. Actually, I love the Austin Powers trailer. In fact, I will probably have a better chance of seeing that the weekend it comes out than Star Wars.”

Brekin Meyer (Go): ”Is there anything coming out besides Star Wars? Just kidding. I want to see Notting Hill with Julia Roberts because I’m a total sucker for her. I’ll take my girlfriend.”

Jennifer Jason Leigh (eXistenZ): ”I’m going to Africa this summer.”

Lucy Liu (Ally McBeal): ”It’s more about the actors who are working this summer than the actual movies. I want to get a dose of Ewan McGregor, Sean Connery, Julia Roberts, and a lot of others.”

Kelly Rutherford (Melrose Place): ”It’s all about travel for me this summer. I’m visiting the Netherlands, Rome, all over Europe. I can’t wait to relax.”

Ron Howard (director, EDtv): Star Wars. I’m also looking forward to Austin Powers.”

Elise Neal (The Hughleys): ”It’s got to be Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me. I loved the first one — I’ve seen it about five times and I’m still cracking up.”

Robert Forster (Jackie Brown): Wild Wild West. Have you seen the trailer? I remember the [TV show], and it was a favorite.”

Rufus Wainwright (musician): ”I’m going to La Scala in Milan to see some opera with my mother. If that ain’t the perfect summer entertainment, I don’t know what is.”

Taye Diggs (Go): Wild Wild West. I’m a fan of Will Smith’s all the way. He gives me — all of us — something to aspire to.”

Omar Epps (The Mod Squad): ”I want to see Wild Wild West. I liked the preview. But basically The Matrix did it for me — that’s 21st-century action right there.”

Kirsten Dunst (Dick): Austin Powers 2. I love Mike Myers so much! I’m not a Star Wars fan — I’ve never even seen a Star Wars movie, so this will be my first one.”

Sally Kirkland (EDtv): ”The Star Wars prequel. I have had many out-of-body experiences as a result of George Lucas films.”

David Cronenberg (director, eXistenZ): ”Riding my mountain bike through the woods.”

Melissa Etheridge: ”Woo hoo, Bruce and the E Street Band. And Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young.”

Chris Tucker (Rush Hour): ”I’m looking forward to, what’s that thing? The Empire Strikes? Star Trek? Yeah, yeah, Star Wars, that’s the one.”

Lisa Nicole Carson (Ally McBeal): ”The sequel to Austin Powers, definitely. I tried the accent out, but I didn’t do it that well. Loved the film anyway.”

Poppy Montgomery (Life): ”Having just done a Garry Marshall movie [The Other Sister], I would have to say Garry’s Runaway Bride.”
