    Now I know this topic existed in the past, in fact I bookmarked it, but it seems to have vanished. So, I figured I'd bring it back.

    After reading countless books in the EU I start to put faces to the characters. Some, fit almost perfectly with the art, others...not so much. Still, here's a bit of my EU casting.

    Corran Horn: Joe Flanigan

    For me, this just fits perfectly.

    Grand Admiral Pellaeon: Sir Derek Jacobi

    [IMG][IMG]

    Grand Admiral Thrawn: Jeremy Irons

    It's the voice, more then the physical appearance.

    Talon Karrde: Robert De Niro

    This is the one most people tend to disagree on.

    General Garm Bel Iblis: William Hurt
    [IMG][IMG]

    Garik "Face" Loran: Ryan Reynolds

    That's just a few. How about you guys?

    I like the corran horn one especially. The only casting choice I can say for sure is that if they ever had to recast Han Solo, I want Nathan Fillion.

    Luke Skywalker, Fate of the Jedi era: Mark Hamill. Again. Cause Mark Hamill is in his 60s now, like Luke is in FotJ.

    Here's my list of who could portray who from the EU: Amy Yasbeck as Mara Jade, Simon Woods as Ben Skywalker, Leighton Meester or Summer Glau as Jaina Solo, Sean Faris as Jacen Solo, Marcia Cross as Admiral Daala, Rachel Taylor as Tahiri Veila. I'm sure there are tons more but that's what I came up with in a short time. What do you you all think?

    Also, while I have no problem with Jeremy Irons, I think I would prefer Hugo Weaving for the role.

    I feel like we need a Kyp, Kyle, Corran adventure. The big 3 on the council aside from Luke...

    Kyp has kind of fell in line lately, haven't been thrilled with that... Have Corran and Kyp on neighboring planets that want's to go to war. Kyle on seperate mission. Kyle finds secret hand playing both sides against each other for it's own gain. Gets Kyp and Corran on board. The three of them use their various non Jedi strength to tear it up...
