Revenge of the Sith Ian McDiarmid is Emperor Palpatine
Sci-Fi Wire was able to catch up with Ian McDiarmid and get him to spill a few details about playing Emperor Palpatine in Star Wars Revenge of the Sith.

McDiarmid Talks Star wars Revenge of the Sith

By the way Ian McDiarmid talks about his character, Emperor Palpatine, you can tell that he really enjoyed playing the part of a Sith head honcho. And why shouldn't he be? He has had some involvement with Palpatine for over 20 years! Ian McDiarmid knows Palpatine and what makes him tick.

Here is a little of what Ian McDiarmid had to say about being Emperor Palpatine one last time:

[Ian McDiarmid interview below]

I think the Emperor is the incarnation of evil, and he's only really interested in power and manipulation. Nothing else gives him any pleasure. He's a Sith from way back, and they don't have a moral universe. They want to create power for themselves by destroying others. It's very interesting to play a character that is irredeemable. There are even real people that have that kind of motiveless malignancy. It's like watching [former Yugoslavian president Slobodan] Milosevic, somebody that only seems interested in power and manipulation.

Wow, the guy makes a relation between Sith and real people... tough love for Milosevic.
