Hi everyone, I know there's a casting call section on this site but it doesn't seem to get updated very often. I know this sort of thing probably gets discussed a lot here, but bear in mind I'm only new to these boards. These are my suggestions on actors appropriate for roles is they filmed either Tim Zahn's Thrawn Trilogy or his Hand of Thrawn Duology. I am drawing from these five books because I consider them to be the best novels written in the Star Wars Extended Universe, and would love to see any (if not all!) of them adapted. Grand Admiral Thrawn- a coveted role if these novels were to be filmed, I agree with the casting call on this site that he should be played by Jeremy Irons. He has that gravelly voice and has had plenty of practice at being a bad guy. Captain Gilad Pellaeon- again, I agree that Derek Jacobi would make a perfect Pellaeon. If for no other reason, because he physically looks more similiar to him than any other candidate I can think of. But what I like about Pellaeon is that he isn't really a bad guy; he's just a loyal officer doing his job, and I think Sir Derek would bring the right amount of dignity and nobility to this role. Joruus C'Baoth- Donald Sutherland was the most popular on this site; I'm not so sure. I personally think James Cromwell would play this well: he's a character actor who is in no way typecast to play villains, as I fear Sutherland is. This makes him more ominous, as we don't know just how dangerous he is. Mara Jade- this would undoubtebly be another very hotly contested role, and I can't think of any "known" actress who could pull it off. In my opinion, given the mysterious nature of her character, this role may be best off in the hands of an unknown. Talon Karrde- I hope people don't think I'm fawning here, but once again I think the site's choice is correct: Sean Connery would be excellent in this role! Lets face it- who wouldn't love to see Sean Connery in a Star Wars film? Plus, his character is like a grown up Han Solo, and let's not forget that this man played Harrison Ford's father in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade. At 74, he may be a little old, but he has aged so well I don't think it will matter. Moff Disra- we're onto the Hand of Thrawn novels now. Given that all the Imperial Officers in the classic trilogy were played by British actos, I think Brian Cox would fit this role nicely. Zahn describes Disra as small and grey haired, which Cox is. He has also made a career out of playing villains who are scheming and political rather than pantomine camp: a perfect fit. Major Tierce- this would be a performance which also requires mystery. I think Daniel Bernhardt would make an excellent Tierce: he's tall, skilled in martial arts and has played a similar character in The Matrix Reloaded. Despite the fact that this was a big film, it is unlikely people would recognise him from this as he was wearing sunglasses for the whole of this film.
