Bai Ling into Playboy and out of Revenge of the Sith

It’s already a few months ago but Bai Ling, who was set to appear as Senator Bana Breemu in the upcoming “Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith,” has apparently been cut from the film according to NBC17. Ling, who visited the now-legendary fan line outside the Mann Chinese Theatre in Hollywood to promote the film, blamed her spread in the June issue of Playboy magazine for her ouster.

“I posed for Playboy and it may have been doing that which upset George Lucas (the “Star Wars” creator/director),” Ling told the New York Post’s Page Six. A LucasFilms spokesperson confirmed the cut, but claimed it had happened more than a year ago.

Ling’s Playboy spread can be found here.

  1. And here we have her! What a shame she was cut. Would have made the movie more interesting 😉
    (she looks a bit like Mrs. Spock here… I know, different series 😉

  2. Bai Ling sings on VH1’s new show “But Can They Sing?”

    Excerpt from a Roger Ebert interview:

    “I am on reality TV! New VH1 show! Named ‘But Can They Sing?’ Celebrity super pop stars, can they sing? They give you four days to learn song. Models, actors, can you sing? I am on with Joey Pants, Larry Holmes, Morgan Fairchild and Carmine Gotti. I tell them, have no trouble with Sinatra. ‘The Way You Look Tonight,’ no problem! You know what they want me to sing? ‘Like a Virgin!’ My God! Not my style! Show plays Oct. 30, at [9] p.m.” She makes sure I write that down. “Be sure to watch! You have to vote for me! Can vote by phone, Internet, every way.”
