** It gets even better when you think about his role in both franchises a little more: ''The Two Towers'' was the central film of ''The Lord of the Rings'' trilogy, and is the film in which Saruman's threat is at its greatest. ''Film/AttackOfTheClones'' is the central film of the ''Star Wars'' prequel trilogy, and is the film in which Count Dooku plays the greatest role. Both films came out in 2002. The fact that Saruman and Count Dooku are very comparable characters helps (they're both [[CoolOldGuy cool old guys]] that were some of the greatest forces of good in their respective franchises who were then [[FaceHeelTurn corrupted]] by a powerful, sinister figure, and were [[SuddenSequelDeathSyndrome abruptly killed]] in the third installment of their respective trilogies).

** In his autobiography, he recounts his romance with an heiress whose father disapproved of her being with someone of such a lowly profession as an actor. During a party on their estate, he tried to embarrass Lee by bringing up his heritage, only to discover that on his mother's side, Lee was descended from an ancient Italian noble family. The man's other guests spent the rest of their stay teasing him about being a noveau riche.
