    Which Actor would you like to see or possibly think would work in Star Wars?

    Alan Rickman- As an Imperial character (not an all out bad guy though.) in OT era or a force user that's neither Jedi or Sith in PT or Before era.

    John Noble- A ruler of some sort or a scientist in any era

    David Wenham- Could work as a grim solider that doesn't like war in any era.

    Jason Isaacs- Not animated but an Imperial in a live action film

    I can't answer this because I am a character guy. So whoever good for the character.

    I can make a list of directors though.

    Guillermo Del Toro (imagine the creatures)
    Spielberg (finally)
    Scorsese(I know it's a long shot, but imagine a star wars crime film)

    Olivia Wilde would be the perfect Satele Shan for a TOR film. I think she'd be perfect in any SW film, she's got that SW vibe to her.

    Why not make her Bastile Shan in a KOTOR film? I'd rather they start with KOTOR and then transition to TOR.

    Jeremy Irons could play a force user character. (Thinking of Eragon) A kind of Obi-wan type(like the one in ANH, but different)
    It could be in a before PT era movie.

    This. It's awesome that he was a background guard in TPM, but if that were to be an impediment in him getting a role in a new movie, that would be incredibly stupid. He was sixteen years younger at the time and wore a helmet. Unless you knew it was him, you wouldn't know it was him, you know? Let him have a beard like in the Hobbit movies, or gray out his hair, or something, and you'd never know. But he's too good an actor to miss out on a role just because of an earlier cameo (you can't even call it that, really).

    No, seriously. I want Armitage in a new SW movie now.

    I thought he played a fighter pilot in TPM.

    In any event, yeah, he's a great actor. Though I felt his Thorin was a little one-note.

    I liked his Thorin but he could have been vastly superior under a different crew (writers / director) ahem. But I'd love to see him with a much meatier role in this SW trilogy. I can see him as being on either side, but I'm shifting toward Imperial. :D

    According to Wookieepedia, yes, he played a pilot, but this is the image it provides.

    So I'm not 100% for sure on that. [face_dunno]

    Weird. Don't even think that's him! Though is that a Naboo pilot's outfit?

    Agreed. IMO, Peter Jackson is an overrated director, and Philippa Boyens is a terrible script-writer. Would have loved to see a different team take a hack at the Hobbit.

    You and me both. The less I say about Philippa the better, but, yes, I'd love to see Richard in another iconic role and it would be fun to see him do something else in Star Wars.

    It's a royal guard outfit. The sleeve on the right side of the screen is the pilot uniform.

    Did you ever listen to her on the DVD commentaries for the LOTR and Hobbit Special Editions? I call her approach "scriptwriting 101 gone bad."

    So much potential, given the excellent source material, squandered by amateur script-writing.

    No. Her scripts and the one interview I mistakenly read are enough proof. I wish Christopher Tolkien would have said the only way the Hobbit films will be filmed if they had new director / screenwriters.

    But enough about them, this is Star Wars.

    I know Viggo won't do another blockbuster (so wanted him for Doctor Strange), but I think he'd be an interesting Star Wars character. Not force sensitive, but I can definitely see someone like Han or Poe (what little we know of Poe.)

    Agreed. Viggo, Karl Urban, Cate Blanchett, Sean Bean, Ian McKellen, Hugo Weaving, perhaps Armitage (or even Martin Freeman, in a more humorous Star Wars spin-off), would be great in the GFFA.

    But the main person I want to join the GFFA is Alfie Allen (Theon from Game of Thrones). To me, he'd be the perfect choice for a son of Luke, if there ever is one.

    I can see the bone structure, but I completely spaced on my man from Romania, Sebastian Stan. He also reminds me of Mark in a big way. And if he keeps being underused in the Marvel movies, Disney should throw him a Wampa bone.
