BadSamaritan Posted October 21, 2005 Share Posted October 21, 2005 Imagine, if you will, that one day, George Lucas decides to go and remake the original Star Wars trilogy. Nightmarish, isn't it? But that is not the point. The real point is, who would he cast into the roles of the main charachters? Who would get to play the rougish Han Solo? Who could fill the shoes of the naive farmboy Luke Skywalker? Who could entrance us with her regal bearing as Princess Leia? And what about everyone else? This is what I want to know!! Personally, these would be my picks. As the Naive Farmboy, I wouold have to go with Edward Fuflong:http://www.edward-furlong.com/postcard/03.jpg Mr. Furlong is best known for his role as Danny Vinyard, in American HIstory X. But he has had many other roles, all of which he did quite well, even rising above piss poor writing inthe fourth Crow installment. As for the never say die, go against all odds smuggler Han Solo, I would have to go, oddly enough, with this man: http://www.vidiot.com/UPN/images/PB/ParaNormalJF.gif Jonathan T Frakes., better known as William T Riker, from Star Trek TNG. As for this pick, to me Frakes has the best chance at pulling off Han Solos' overall attitude. Granted, he is getting on in years and would have to dye his hir some, but still. Ah yes, the lovely Leie Organa (Solo). Princess of Alderaan, twin sister of Luke Skywalker, leader in the rebellion. For this role, I would have to say a famous starlet would be perfect. http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v445/droiger/Jessica_Alba_192071g.jpg Why? She can pull off the regal look, the herion look, and the leader look. And I bet she would look so cute with her hair up in those odd buns... Moving on, who do we get to play the old sand hermit/teacher/jedi Master Obu Wan Kenobi? Intelligent, wise, patient, all of these things are what make him so danged cool. And frankly, who better to play an eldery sword weilding good guy, then none other than a elderly, sword weilding good guy? http://24ur.com/media/images/extra/Jul2001/1005215.jpg Sean Connery is one of the best actor out there. He is the right age. He has that wise, all knowing attitude when he wants it. That, and his accent makes him just that much cooler. Grand Moff Tarkin. Controller of the Death Star. Killer of Alderaan. A hard role for anyone. They would have to be tall, thin, and have that just plain evil look to them. http://www.columbiatristar.fr/03/espion_demi/main/img_film/c_dowell.jpg Malcom McDowell fits the bill, doesn't he? And better yet, his voice is crisp. Clean. Imperial. A perfect actor for this role. As for the rest, I don't know. Lando Calrissian would be hard to portray. james Earl Jones will ALWAYS be the voice of Darth Vader. What other major roles are there to fill? And who would you want as the actors for a modern day Star Wars? I once knew a great man. Nothing got to him, and he always smiled. May he forever rest in peace, knowing fully well that his freinds shall remember him. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
