Brook Lopez may not know if he will be able to play in Tuesday's game against the Denver Nuggets after missing the last eight contests with a lower back strain, but there are more important issues to discuss. Like, what does Lopez have to do to get some sort of role in next year's Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens

Per New York Post

“I really would like to get a part, like a walk-on part, in the next Star Wars movie, so, I’d like to lobby for that,” Lopez said. “Let’s work on that. I’d like to be a wookiee. I would really like to be a wookiee. They don’t need my ugly face in there. They don’t need me acting. I’m not going to blow anything, guys. C’mon, Mr. Lucas. I just want to be in the movie."

"I feel like I could do it. I’m a huge Star Wars fan. I just want to be a part of it. I grew up watching it. I mean, I’d really like to be in the movie … I’ve thought about it for — when I heard about the new one, I went to my agent, so you guys have got to help out, too. You guys think I’m kidding, but I’m not. I’m not kidding at all.”

If George Lucas, or even director J.J. Abrams, can hear Brook's pleas, make his Christmas dream come true. 'Tis the season of giving, so make it happen, guys!
