Celebrity Auditions for the Role of Yoda in Star Wars

Yoda is an incredibly powerful Jedi Master in the Star Wars universe. Series creator George Lucas originally wished Yoda to follow his other characters in having a full name: Minch Yoda, but instead opted to have many details of the character's life history remain unknown. 

He also auditioned several celebrities for the roll of Yoda before deciding to go the puppet/CGI route for the character.  Here are the characters who made it to the finals.  Lose out to Puppet Yoda they did.
