Sounds like my boy-genius after one of the newer star-wars movies we got programs/making-of booklets.

He looks at the actor that played the older Annakin and says "No wonder they picked him to play Annakin, he looks just like him."

BWAAAHAHAHA

Same kid, as a munchkin told his gradma that "You know, if they'd move those "Deer Crossing" signs, maybe the deer would not cross there."
