NEW YORK, N.Y. -- Little Darth has come helmet to helmet with the voice of the original Darth Vader!
Super Bowl commercial break out star Max Page, who played Little Darth Vader in Volkswagen’s Passat commercial, met James Earl Jones on Monday night.
The legendary actor presented the 6-year-old with an authentic Vader helmet backstage at his show, “Driving Miss Daisy,” on Broadway in New York City. The helmet was inscribed with, “To Max, may the force be with you, from James Earl Jones.”
“Thanks,” Max told James after receiving the gift. “It’s a real helmet!”
“I like the one you wore in commercial though,” James told the young actor.
Max told Access Hollywood that it “was such a surprise” to receive the gift from the actor and that he planned on showing it to his dogs back home.
As for the most fun thing he has done since becoming an overnight success, Max revealed it was something most of us might take for granted.
“Probably riding in the taxis, they’re fun!” he added.
On Monday, Max told Access Hollywood Live’s Billy Bush and Kit Hoover, “I’ve actually never seen ‘Star Wars.’”
