We haven't heard much from comedian Jim Jefferies' FXX (formerly FX) comedy 'Legit' since closing out the inaugural season this year, but it seems the breakout hit is far from its most desperate hour. The once (and future?) Princess Leia herself, Carrie Fisher will take on a role when 'Legit' returns for a second season on FXX, but who will the formerly Alderaanian princess portray?
While Harrison Ford is doing his best to stay quiet about 'Star Wars: Episode 7,' Carrie Fisher (the first to spill the beans about returning for Disney's 'Star Wars' sequels) is still talking.
