    AS it's a little slow right now, maybe this will get some conversation going.

    When I read the EU books, I tend to mentally cast who I imagine playing the various characters. For me at least, it makes the books seem a little more cinematic. What follows are a few of the people I can see playing these characters. For some, there's more than one person, but that's just because I can't decide.

    Thrawn- Alan Rickman, David Bowie or Tim Curry.

    Paelleon- Joss Ackland (Lethal Weapon 2 as Argent Rudd)

    Danni Quee- Sarah Chalke (Elliot on Scrubs)

    Admiral Daala- Julianne Lewis or Sela Ward

    Winter- Darryl Hannah

    Joruus C'Baoth- Sean Connery

    Talon Karrde- Tom Skerrit

    As much as I hate to say it (I'm already getting sick) I can see Tom Cruise (hurling now) as Kyp.

    Now to save this post, I can see Orlando Bloom as Jag Fel.

    And to finish this love triangle out..I'll just go with pure eye candy on this one, but she can act too, Jenny Love Hewitt as Jaina.

    Tom Cruise? I don't know about that. Who I could see as Kyp Durron would be Angus McFayden (Robert the Bruce in Braveheart). Another "Braveheart" alum I could see in the SW Universe would be Brian Cox (Uncle Argyle). He's also in the new X-Men movie. I could see him playing Booster Terrik.

    I could see Gene Hackman as Talon Karrde, and Hugo Weaving as Xizor.
