Call­ing all Star Wars fans! This May the 4th (aka Star Wars Day) brought a sur­prise even cool­er than a lightsaber duel. Darth Vad­er him­self, leg­endary actor James Earl Jones, is up for a MAJOR award: the Con­gres­sion­al Gold Medal!

Why is this a big deal? The Con­gres­sion­al Gold Medal is the high­est civil­ian hon­or in the US, reserved for true Amer­i­can heroes. Jones isn’t just Darth Vad­er, though. He’s a war vet­er­an, a Tony Award-win­ning actor who broke racial bar­ri­ers in Hol­ly­wood, and the icon­ic voice of Mufasa in The Lion King! Basi­cal­ly, he’s a total legend.

From Stut­ter­ing to Star­dom: Jones’ jour­ney is inspir­ing. He over­came a stut­ter to become the boom­ing voice we all know. His roles in clas­sics like Com­ing to Amer­i­ca and Field of Dreams are unforgettable.

May the Force Be With This Bill: Even Star Wars fans in Con­gress are on board. Law­mak­ers from both par­ties are back­ing the bill to award Jones the medal. They rec­og­nize his incred­i­ble career and his impact on Amer­i­can cul­ture. This is one award every­one can agree on!

So, will James Earl Jones become the first Sith Lord to receive the Con­gres­sion­al Gold Medal? Only time will tell, but one thing’s for sure: The Force is def­i­nite­ly strong with this nomination!
