    I've had that problem with the old browsers I'm forced to use at work, never had it with updated browsers (I use Chrome and Firefox.) If you reload the page and then edit, it usually works.


    I wouldn't trust any of that right now. If IMDB say rumored, it's just that, a rumor. But other than that... I have no clue.[/quote]

    Somebody deleted the Master of Kroll reference today, but Fisher-Becker is still listed (they deleted the Jaina Solo reference too).

    What's wrong with THAT?

    The Mara Jade rumor is interesting. Always liked the character. Not the name though.

    Well a while ago a guy was rumored to play 'nexus' IMDB is your best source to check the quality of the movie but not the best for casting rumors.

    Okay, so Mara Jade. If it is true, who would play her? I mean it would be odd if she were played buy someone significantly younger than Hamill. (Judy Dench for Mara!!)

    No, Judi Dench is not playing Mara. My secret inside sources tell me she's been cast as Bob's wife :p

    You heard it here first!

    She could probably play Bob if they wanted her to.

    This may be INCREDIBLE wishful thinking... but if they bring back the force ghost of Anakin Skywalker, and they decide to ignore the DVD edition and go for the "old anakin" route, they should get...

    "loving my #StarWarsEpisodeVII girls: @carriefisher, @ridley_daisy, #BillieLourd, #MaisieRichardsonSellers"

    So I guess Maisie really is in? Billie is Carries daughter - maybe like John Boyega's dad, she has a cameo?

    I realize it's the wrong era but Cruise would make a really great Rush Clovis like character. An arrogant schemer you love to hate.

    Wow what the hell, why would they keep Maisie a secret. Even if she was Obi Wan's daughter that cat is pretty much out of the bag? Good catch.

    There is the rumor about not knowing the main protagonist until the end of the movie. Maybe this has something to do with that? Keep Maisie hidden until the end of the movie? Wasn't she one of those we all thought was a lock?

    Cruise cameo? Now we know who will be shot down in the cantina :D

    Maisie is in? Wow. Time to launch a: most beautiful woman in Ep VII poll. Between her Lupita and Ridley this will be a dream.

    Exactly. Is everyone opposed if he gets murdered on screen?? =D=


    [edit]: I actually have no problem with Tom. Loved the last two M.I. movies.

    I love Tom Cruise as an actor. I would worry that he would look out of place in a Star Wars movie though. It would certainly be a case of "hey look there's Tom Cruise!", which is what you don't want while watching a movie like Star Wars, which is more about bein immersed in the worlds and characters. A lot of movies can get away with a superstar in them, but not Star Wars.

    Don't want Cruise anywhere near Episode VII.

    This is supposed to be the return of the Big 3 - even a cameo by that Scientologist nutjob will overshadow them unfortunately.

    Stay home, Tom.
