Jake Lloyd brought out the annoying cute side of Darth Vader, playing a young Anakin Skywalker in the 1999 "Star Wars" prequel "The Phantom Menace" -- and today, he turns 23!

While George Lucas' flick is back in theaters now, don't expect to see Lloyd in anything new these days ... his most recent film was "Madison" back in 2001!

Lloyd, who went to Columbia College Chicago, still occasionally makes appearances at comic trade shows and was most recently seen last summer at Comic Con in Philadelphia (right).
