The seventh installment in the Star Wars franchise is due to be released on Friday, and pretty much everyone is excited about it. Kobe Bryant was asked which of the famous films characters he most relates to, and his answer is the least surprising thing ever.
Kobe on which Star Wars character he is: "Darth Vader, of course. But I don't take orders from the Emperor, so Darth Emperor, maybe."— Mark Medina (@MarkG_Medina) December 16, 2015
Bryant talked about the importance of embracing all emotions, including anger, to fuel his performance in his Showtime documentary Muse, so it is hardly a surprise that he is drawn to the Dark Side of The Force.
Even more entertaining is that Bryant decides that simply being evil and super powerful like Vader is not enough, and decides he would like to be the Sith Lord Emperor Palpatine.
