If anyone is keeping a running list of People Who Want Legally Blonde 3 (opens in new tab) to Happen Already, please formally add Luke Wilson's name (opens in new tab) to the roster.

The actor spoke with ET Online (opens in new tab) Friday at SiriusXM's Radio Row and, naturally (because when is it not natural to engage a beloved early aughts rom-com and/or chick flick star in some nostalgia chat?) Legally Blonde came up. Specifically, Legally Blonde 3 came up—because it's the movie that has to happen to complete the trilogy the world needs, but never deserved. 

Even though Wilson insisted that he doesn't know many details about the rumored third installment of the Elle Woods saga (opens in new tab), he did confirm that he's 100 percent in, assuming the project comes together (which, like, please let it come together, universe—give us at least one win).

Here's exactly what Wilson had to say (opens in new tab) about the movie: 

Of course, Hollywood is unpredictable and, until a movie goes into production, it's impossible to say for sure that it's happening. But, when it comes to Legally Blonde 3, we can all take comfort in the fact that Reese Witherspoon (aka Elle Woods herself) basically confirmed (opens in new tab) that it's a thing last summer.

"It’s true... #LegallyBlonde3," the actress wrote on Twitter, along with a video of her floating luxuriously in a pool, Elle Woods-style (opens in new tab).

In August, Witherspoon (opens in new tab) doubled down on the announcement in an interview with ET (opens in new tab), saying:

“Oh, it’s gonna be so fun! I got to go to a meeting the other day where we talked about all the new plot points and all the characters and some returning characters and some new characters. I mean, I got so excited just in the meeting. I was like, 'This is gonna be good.'"

So, to recap: Legally Blonde 3 is basically definitely happening and, when it does, Luke Wilson (opens in new tab) is going to be in it, giving Elle and Emmett the happily ever after they so truly deserve.
