Here’s Chris Hardwick on “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.” Lightsabers Are Involved

Did you catch Chris Hardwick last night on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon? He talked about Course of the Force and the Nerdist Channel, with more details than you’ve heard before. And the whole audience got tickets to a screening of The Phantom Menace in 3D immediately after the taping. Here, more lightsabers:

(I know, not available in other countries. Nothing we can do about that. That’s a network thing. It’s beyond our control. Sorry) (UPDATE: Seems to be working in a lot of countries, so never mind, unless it doesn’t in your country, in which case sorry again)

Our original announcement of Course of the Force is here, and that’ll link you to all the information you need, including the official site and all that.

    Works in Israel too!
    This is new.. When this post came out it didn’t work…
    Could NBC finally have realized they were being idiots and if people WANT to consume their content outside of the US that it’s a *good* thing?

    Great interview! Loved the lightsaber moves!
    Hey, speaking of “moves”… How about those fantastic pull ups Chris did from the legs hanging from the balcony?
    Primus gets me pumped too!

  3. Beau Ryan says:

    Everyone at the office is happy to hear you say “Machinima” on Jimmy Fallon. Great job Chris!

    That poor audience having to be forced to pile up into buses and subjected to the horror that is the Phantom Menace in 3D. For shame, SHAME I SAY! Actually very cool thing he did, my opinion of the prequels aside.

    I stayed up last night just to watch this.
    Worth it.
    Woke up a little late but my classes start late so it’s ok.

    I wan’t a lightsaber like that. I only had the extendable ones as a kid.

  8. Matt says:

    Way to suck the devils the dick Chris, those people thought they were getting lightsabers and you pulled the switch with Phantom Menace in 3D. Just kidding Chris great appearance.
