    Haha, De Niro would be an excellent Karrde. :)

    I've read a lot of fan-cries for Joseph Gordon Levitt as Jacen Solo. Not sure I like the idea myself...

    My 2 cents.... Christian Bale for Thrawn and Tahmoh Penikett (Helo from Battlestar Galactica) as Jagged Fel. ;)

    Nina Dobrev as Jaina. I'd be good with Joseph Gordon-Levitt as Jacen.

    I vote for Enver Gjokaj for Face, but not because of any physical resemblance. I've just never seen another actor switch roles so convincingly as he does.

    Jeremy Irons for Thrawn, definitely. He seems perfect for the role.

    I still say Hugo Weaving for Thrawn, and someone said Christian Bale? I like him a ton, but I'm not sure if that's a fitting role for him. [face_thinking]

    Also, Jason Statham as a not-dead Boba Fett.

    ????? You want Jason Statham to play a clone of another actor?

    It's been mentioned in the Republic Commando books that facial expressions and speech patterns help distinguish clones from one another. Motion capture would work. Statham's facial expressions on a Temuera Morrison model. Morrison is fantastic, of course, but he's only got so much range. He can't be every Jango Clone ever (even though physically, he is). You've eventually gotta mix it up a little bit.

    Once upon a time, I actually pictured Nathaniel Lees in that role.

    Not to mention that depending on the time period in the OT, Boba Fett would be much older than his father ever aged to.

    Ellen Page and Joseph Gordon Levitt as the Solo twins would be pretty great. Both can pull of the serious side of Leia and the humorous side of Han.

    The guy from Arrow would be a great Jaden Korr

    I'm not seeing it.
    You should see Jedi vs Sith. She's a natural redhead.
    I'd cast Christina Hendricks. Redhead (I know she's a natural blonde, but she dyes her hair).

    I was focusing entirely on facial features, not hair colour.

    I guess it's just that I feel that the book cover made her look unnatural.
    I prefer/think of her as Rain instead of Darth Zannah.
    Blame Jedi vs Sith comics, I guess.
    And Tomcat's fate in the comics is CANON. I refuse to believe that Rain would actually willingly kill him.

    His fate in the book is exactly as in the comic- he goes off to become "just a man". However, 10 years later he bumps into Zannah.

    It's not that different from Anakin- he began as a sweet kid, yet murdered the love of his life in a fit of rage very shortly after becoming The Apprentice, so why can't Zannah murder Tomcat 10 years after becoming The Apprentice?
