* PlayingTheirOwnTwin: [=McGregor=] portrays twins Emmit and Ray Stussy in the third season of ''Series/{{Fargo}}''. He also portrays both Tom Lincoln and his clone Lincoln Six Echo in ''Film/TheIsland''.
* PromotedFanboy: "I've been waiting nearly twenty years to have my own light saber. Nothing's cooler than being a Jedi Knight." Purportedly, he had trouble filming the action scenes because he wouldn't stop making lightsaber sounds. Denis Lawson, who played [[EnsembleDarkhorse Wedge]] [[BadassNormal Antilles]] in the original trilogy, is his uncle.

He also pulls double duty as Emmit and Ray Stussy in the third season of ''Series/{{Fargo}}''- but this is actually a case of ActingForTwo as, contrary to popular belief, the brothers are not twins (they ARE relatively close in age, but Ray is slightly younger- which is a major plot point in the series).

* IAmNotSpock: Or, in his case, he is not Obi-Wan Kenobi. He does prefer to distance himself from the famous Jedi Master, though that's not to say he didn't enjoy working on the ''Star Wars'' prequels. He's gone on to say that he'd be willing to return to the role and explore what happened to Obi-Wan in the gap between the two trilogies. There is a recent statement that he was happy when he reprised his role in Episode VII.
