Plenty of celebrities are Star Wars fans. Plenty of them are well-versed enough in the Star Wars galaxy that they know about Admiral Ackbar.
But there’s only one celebrity I know of who has actually proclaimed Ackbar as their favorite.
I’m talking, of course, about Tina Fey…
Don’t believe me? She’s at about 2:40 in this video, where various celebrities pick their favorite Star Wars character. In the midst of all the Hans and Vaders, there’s Ms Fey, proclaiming her love for the Admiral.
She’s also referenced Ackbar on 30 Rock, in the season 1 finale “Hiatus,” asking “Is that how far apart my eyes are? I look like Admiral Ackbar!” (I don’t have a video clip for this one, but would I lie to you?)
Keep it up, Tina Fey. Your Ackbar love is an inspiration to us all.
