PostSubject: So, Zac Efron....   Fri Jul 26, 2013 1:24 pm

It was rumored the other day that Ryan Gosling and Zac Efron have been casted to play in the new Star Wars movie. Gosling being rumored to be Skywalker's son, Ben Skywalker, and Efron to be casted as Solo's son, who'd I assume is Jacen Solo as he's older than Anakin.

This casting isn't spectacular in my opinion, and I feel like those who casted these actors are directly trying to influence those actors' fanbases (e.g. the many teenage-young adult girls that wheeze over Efron) into investing in the Star Wars franchise. Personally, I wouldn't like to see either of these actors in the Star Wars universe as neither really seem to fit to me, and the thought of Efron playing Jacen is very disturbing.

Anyway, thoughts on this and who'd you like to see in the next Star Wars movie? Personally, I can't get enough of Alan Rickman.

Efron? Eww.
Still, rather him than Miley Cyrus or any of the other live-action Disney crew.

Obviously, I hold out hope that Harrison, Carrie, Mark, Kenny, and Anthony will reprise their roles - although it would be nice to see Peter, the role of Chewie could, given what occurs in-established-expanded-universe, be in some dispute, depending on when the movies take place in-universe. It also, of course, depends on whether they make use of the already-established expanded universe, although I do hope that if that is to be the case, they make nothing more than a mention of Sidious beyond Episode VI.

My choices for other actors? Well, it all depends on what roles they have that need filling.

For example, an old and wise Jedi (assuming that the movies include some focus on Luke's newly-established order) mentor in the series could easily be played by someone like Ian McKellen, who could also be a badass in all the right situations. A cool, calculating Admiral on the side of the villains could be played very effectively by Ralph Fiennes. If the Mandalorians were to get involved (because there always seems to be a Mandalorian somewhere in a Star Wars saga/derivative thereof), it would be nice to see Temuera Morrison finally in-person in the role of Boba Fett.

Other actors, whose roles I can't quite picture at this stage, I would like to see are:

David Tennant.
Warwick Davis (although not in the capacity as an Ewok).
I am in accordance with the propagation of Alan Rickman.
John Hurt.

(Very hard to come up with a list that isn't, in some way, linked to public appreciation/fanatical following)

It would be quite amusing to see Zachary Quinto and/or Chris Pine have some role in this film saga.

Gosling was awesome in Drive and there honestly has not been a movie that Efron could really try something, which also means that he may not know how.

At leas we will have someone to replace Christensen as the bottom bitch of SW.

I would love to see Charles Dance as some grand Moff (provided the movies bother with Imperial Remnant business). Pellaeon would be nice but his appearance has been somewhat established.
