    I thought this would be a fun idea for a thread. If they were to make movies off of the EU, who would play our favorite actors?

    I'll start my listing a few EU characters, and you guys reply with who you think would be the perfect actor for the role. Put the Actor's name and the Character's name in Bold. Check out the Mark Up Codes link here if you don't know how to do it.

    Jacen Solo
    Anakin Solo
    Jaina Solo
    Mara Jade
    Talon Karde
    Kyp Duron
    Corran Horn
    Grand Admiral Thrawn
    Grand Admiral Palleaon

    That's it to start, feel free to add more.

    I personally feel that a young River Phoenix would be perfect for the role of Anakin Solo. Maybe even Liv Tyler for Jaina? I'm not a huge fan of hers, but I could see her as Jaina.

    oliver platt as Captain Pellaeon? egad!
    it better be an older Oliver Platt...

    my pick for Kam Solusar would be Bruce Willis.

    Keira Knightly could be Jaina.

    I agree with mara about mara, I don't really see Angelina as luke's main squeeze.

    I think that a grand admiral palleon would be better served by anthony hopkins. And for Thrawn I'd say James Woods. Think Hercules....he was great.

    Well she was never my first choice and I really hater her voice. I think it was a picture I was looking at that made me consider her.

    did you see not another teen movie....she looked just like Jeniffer Love Hewitt in that movie....friggin scary. I like Eliza Dushku as Jaina though, her whole Faith character going to the darkside....pretty similar to what happens to Jaina (though she doesn't go ALL the way bad). Remember you would need a guy who would work well as her twin brother. I think Jacen is the hardest character to cast....

    I did see it but I didnt know it was her. *shudders*
    I only remember her from Lost in Space and the pic I saw was from when she was about that age.

    'Know it's a while back, but yeah, I do agree that Angelina Jolie wouldn't make a good Mara... however, she might make a good Mirax.

    Dude your all crazy! ;) Go see the new Tomb Rader and tell me again you don?t think she is good Mara Jade Material, you just got to think about her with red hair. I thought about Jennifer Garner once but think about it if you had Jennifer and Angelina both holding lightsabers witch one would u be more intimidated bye? Jennifer is not even as attractive as Angelina ether and she?s already got the attitude to match where as Jennifer Garner has to act (and I hate to say but she doesn?t do a good job of that anyway) I would much rather stick with the one who has the academy award.

    O and as far as grand admiral palleon goes I have only read about him in (currently sense that?s were my RPG is set) in Hire to the empire, Dark force rising, and last command. And he was such a bad ass as in NJO so sorry for the confutation but for NJO I would have to agree with Carl on the Anthony Hopkins call that would rock!

    O and I think Carl should play Jacen and I should play Anakin. Those are my changes. :)

    dude....Angelina Jolie is WAY to young to play Mara Jade. Think about it, she would NOT look good as Luke's wife. Plus she would look retarded with red hair. But this thread isn't about us agreeing. That's who you would want to play her, I can respect that dude. We should stop this destructive criticism and move on.

    who would be a good Boba Fett? I'm talking about the one from Sernpidal? You know the Mayor...

    Ummmmmmmmmmm Eliza hell yeah, but dude that wouldn?t be cool I would want to jump her bones then, and that?s not cool to kiss my own sis-???. O never mined.

    Again you are entitled to our opinion Carl but once again I think the resin you and I are not coming to terms on this conversation on the Mara Jade is because you are thinking of Mara NJO and I am thinking for the campaign Hair to the empire were she is only 24 years old. ;) But what ever works for you, I am curios who you would cast in her place?
