Conan Christopher O'Brien (born April 18, 1963) is an American television host, comedian, writer, and producer. He is best known for hosting the late-night talk shows Late Night with Conan O'Brien, The Tonight Show with Conan O'Brien, and Conan.

On May 1, 2007, after talking with Star Wars creator George Lucas about his cameo in Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith and his feelings for having finished, by then, the Star Wars saga, O'Brien invited his associate producer Jordan Schlansky to ask Lucas which was the name of the Imperial officer who gets strangled by Darth Vader at the Death Star conference room scene from Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope.

After thinking it for a while, Lucas responded that the character's complete name, as he was already known as Admiral Motti, was "Conan Antonio Motti," a tuckerization of O'Brien's name. The name was then canonized and the next day O'Brien shared his surprise that the name was quickly adopted by Wookieepedia.[1]
