Academy Award winning Actor James Earl Jones is coming to Melbourne next year to perform in Driving Miss Daisy at the Comedy Theatre.

The legendary voice of Darth Vader joined Neil Mitchell this morning from New York and opened up about a number of issues, including the reelection of President Barack Obama, growing up in the racially segregated southern United States and what he thinks of his one-of-a-kind voice.

Asked how much longer he'll continue acting, Jones said however long he's still physically and mentally capable.

"I'm 81, and I see no reason to stop, until they stop hiring me," Jones joked.

Listen to the fantastic interview below.
