    If Episode 1-3 had been made in the 80's and George had used the cast from 4-6, which roles would suit which actor best, and vice versa? Here are my thoughts :

    Episode 1-3

    Young Obi-Wan Kenobi : Mark Hamill
    Qui-Gon Jinn : Sir Alec Guiness
    Darth Maul : David Prowse
    Darth Sidious \ Palpatine : Ian Macdermid
    Padme : Carrie Fisher
    Adult Anakin : Harrison Ford
    Yoda : Frank Oz
    Mace Windu : Billy Dee Williams

    Episode 4-6

    Old Ben : Christopher Lee
    Luke Skywalker : Ewan Macgregor
    Han Solo : Hayden Christensen
    Leia : Natalie Portman
    Lando : Samuel L. Jackson
    Darth Vader : Ray Park
    Emperor : Ian Macdermid
    Tarkin : Liam Neeson
    Yoda : Frank Oz

    Hayden couldn't be either Han or Luke. If Ewan McGregor was Luke, Hayden would just look silly as Han, calling him "kid," and the like... Also, just because Billy Dee and Samuel L. are the only black guys to have big roles in the Star Wars films, it doesn't mean they have to switch roles. I say stuff Hayden away in the Lando role, and make Samuel play Han Solo. Yeah, that's how I'd do it. You also forgot to cast Dooku, and since I can't think of an actor to fill in for him from the OT, I'll just say that Lando's robot aide guy could do it.

    Good ideas, Levi!

    I couldn't think of anyone from the OT who would fit into Dooku's role... I firgured it would be silly having Hayden call Ewan kid, but I guess I was only thinking of his "rebellious" personality in AOTC, and Han's nature in the OT. Hayden would make a good Lando!!

    lol... Yoda the wookie Jedi. He would wipe the floor with Tyranus in 2 seconds.

    Can you imagine little (yoda)Chewbacca trying to overpower storm troopers with his brute force?
