Hayden Christensen is the only actor to play both Anakin Skywalker and his villainous alter ego Darth Vader as originally, a stuntman was going to don his life support suit after he completes his transformation as Vader but Christensen (who grew up watching the original trilogy as a kid and always wanted to play Vader prior to being cast) convinced the crew to build the suit for him (he's 6', eight inches shorter than Vader's original suit actor David Prowse) and various camera tricks were used to make him appear to be the same size as Prowse, so when he showed up donning the suit, the crew cheered.

Oh, you don't get it anyway. I can delete that if you want.
No, it's just that I'm unsure on that. I don't think you should delete it at all.

at one time there a cinema that accidentally showed saw 3d instead of megamind
I remember there was a theater that showed The Hills Have Eyes 2 instead of The Last Mimzy. The former film has an opening scene involving a naked woman graphically birthing a mutant. Think of all those poor kids that got traumatized over that.

Also, TIL in the early 1900s Wagner von Jauregg treated syphilis patients with malaria (winning the Nobel Prize). The patients developed malaria, causing a severe fever and killed the syphilis bacteria. Then given the malaria drug quinine and cured. This was used until the development of penicillin

The DeLorean was not the original idea for the time travelling machine for Back to the Future. A fridge was originally considered for such but it was discarded out of fear that it would lead to children going inside their fridges.
