    uninspired casting Liam Neeson.....my god.....would Alec Guiness also be considered uninspired....

    I'm all for unknown actors for the main characters.....you need Liam Neeson & Alec Guinness kind of casting for the supporting roles...the kind of actors who gives instant credibility and gravita to the whole story.

    Currently, the actor (beside the big three) for that kind of role would be Fassbender (too young though)......Russel Crowe....but he's already playing that kind of character in Man of Steel.

    Crowe would have been great in SW.....he almost got the Obi-Wan's part in the prequels...

    I want to be in Episode VII... :D

    Maybe one of the side characters could be Mara Jade-like. Different name, of course, but a similar backstory and look. :p

    I'm hoping there's more truth to the William Shatner April Fools joke than just a routine annual prank. I'd love to see him and Leonard Nimoy in the film!

    I agree... any Trek references or actors would make zero sense IMO.

    Humour. It is a difficult concept. It is not logical.

    And why don't they get the entire cast of The Expendables while they're at it too?

    Samuel L. Jackson wants to reappear as Mace Windu in ‘Star Wars Episode VII'
    Source: Hypable

    I want to be in “Star Wars” now too, in J.J.’s “Star Wars.” I mean, come on. Jedi fall from incredible heights and a lot of them have lived with one hand. I think I could handle it.

    I think a lot of the PT cast would like to be in ST given a chance, Ewan, Ian, Samuel for definate - Hayden and Natalie may be shy

    I think they'd all be much more interested in getting their own spin offs than making a ton of shoehorned references and cameos in ST.

    Jackson was on a uk chat show the other day and was very much into coming back as Mace Windu, he realised he was dead but is still very keen, he mentioned Ep7 in particular

    I love Sam Jackson but just no. Mace Windu is dead. Just leave him there to rest in peace. Same with Ray Park. The only reason I could see him coming back is because of his great martial arts skills but they can find others who have the same ability so I don't think it's necessary.

    Exactly. Please leave the dead characters dead. Their story has already been told, it's time to bring in a new batch of characters and start a new chapter.

    Now, if we're talking the spin-offs, that's something entirely different. In that case, sure, bring him back.

    i dont mind either way, but Disney would see Jackson as a bums on seats name, i think we may get a few mins of ghost/holocrom of him in ST and then starring role in a spin off

    I really don't see a reason for him to return as a Force ghost so to me it would feel forced. Also I don't want to see the ability to Force ghost watered down by every dead Jedi having the ability.

    Sure but he also died before he could learn the power. I just don't want to see Force ghosts of every important Jedi running around in the ST because I think it would really cheapen their appearance and it could easily become too much. Like I said I don't see a reason for Mace Windu to appear so I don't think he should.
