James Earl Jones will forever be known as the voice of Darth Vader, the (mostly) faceless villain of the Star Wars saga whose heavy breathing and hands-off strangling of subordinates gave the first trilogy a cohesiveness that the second trilogy lacked. He also gained notoriety as the voice of CNN, another role that required him to take full advantage of his booming baritone. But whenever I think of Mr. Jones, I recall him walking into McDougal’s restaurant as the king of Zamunda in the classic comedy, Coming to America, wearing both an enormous skinned lion across his shoulders and a look of complete and utter disgust upon his face.
