Grammy-Nominated "Star Wars" Geeks Are Psyched for "The Force Awakens"

Just because you're a Grammy-nominated musician doesn't mean you can't also be a total Star Wars geek -- just ask Hozier. The Irish singer/songwriter tells ABC Radio that he can't wait to see the new movie Star Wars: The Force Awakens, but not because he's dying to see the new characters, or the returning cast from the original film.  No -- Hozier says he's interested in technical stuff.

"[Terrence] ain't done nothing different than Marlon Brando or Sean Penn, and all of a sudden he's some f*****'n demon," Daniels told the industry trade publication. "That's a sign of the time, of race,…
