    I recently read the MedStar duology, awesome BTW. Anywho I thought of some ideas for a cast:

    Jos Vondar- Matt Damon seems like a good choice for a snarky guy who also has some existential issues. It would have to be Matt Damon nowadays, since Jos is supposed to be at least in his 30s or so.

    Tolk le Trene- Rashida Jones, mostly because she plays a nurse on Parks and Rec, plus she's the right skin tone. Even though Jones usually does comedies I could easily see her in a more serious war role.

    Admiral Erel Kersos- Clint Eastwood plays the old man with a troubled past really well. Plus he's worked with Matt Damon before so they would click well together here.

    Uli Divini- Uli is said to look a bit younger than he is, so Leonardo DiCaprio circa Titanic would be good for such a role. Plus Leo could bring Uli a lot of charm, especially when interacting with Barriss. Again it helps that Leo played a doctor, sort of.

    Den Dhur- I see Den as having a sort of New York accent similar to James Cagney's. He seems like he would have a sly-sounding voice, so Steve Buscemi could be another good choice, or even Tom Kenny.

    I didn't really picture anyone for the various aliens. Kaird I sort of see as looking like a realistic Falco, and to me Zan sounds like Christian Bale.

    I don't know, mainly because I have no reference for Glover in my head as I've never heard of nor seen him in anything besides the photo you posted. Based on that, I'd say Glover is actually lighter than Windu! As far as the timeline references, I'm not quick enough to figure out how old Rostu would be, although I have read most Rostu containing books with the exception of the Med Star stuff. I guess there'd be about a 10 to 15 year gap b/w Shatterpoint and the CN books? It's not that hard for me to mentally age Wright a little, and yeah, I'm sure they had clippers in the GFFA, I mean, they had to give Chewie that sweet-ass flat top in SOTE right?!?

    Even after ten years, Rachel Leigh Cook for Jaina. The reason is continuity of character. She looks just like Padme's "mom" Trisha Noble here :

    http://www.imdb.com/media/rm3631913728/nm0000337

    And she looks like Carrie Fisher and Natalie. She's still perfect.

    I may be alittle delayed, but here I've thought up a small cast for X-Wing:

    The Rogues-

    Wedge Antilles-Denis Lawson is all I can think of, but he's sadly too old. James McAvoy (X-Men: First Class) might work.
    Corran Horn-Chris Pine (His arrogant attitude when playing Captain Kirk was rather Corran-like).
    Tycho Celchu-Karl Urban (Don't label me a Trekkie, please :)
    Wes Janson-Someone'll need to help me on that one... Mark Wahlberg comes into mind.
    Gavin Darklighter-Not sure. I've thought about Justin Long, but I doubt he'd be taken seriously.
    Hobbie-Jeff Goldblum would work here.

    The Wraiths-

    Face-Ryan Reynolds
    Ton Phanan-Michael Biehn of Terminator fame could work.
    Myn Donos-James Marsden (Cyclops)

    The Empire-

    Ysanne Isard-Cate Blanchete
    Soontir Fel- Hmmm, Jason Isaacs?
    Warlord Zsinj-Give Anthony Hopkins a handlebar 'Stache. :)

    I'll do more later.

    I certinly don't like the idea of Mark Wahlburg playing such a playful character. I mean, plus he doesn't have the squat looks of Wes either.

    Lucius Malfoy as Soontir Fel? Psh. Please.

    Not to be flaming or anything. I mean, this is a thread for opinions.

    Wow, I forgot I even made this post. lol. I don't think you're flaming, I actually take back a few things... I think Timothy Olyphant actually would do well as Janson.
    Having not seeing HP in so long, I honestly forgot Isaacs starred in that.Wow.
    How do you like my idea for Zsinj?

    I'm thinking Face could be played by Bradley Cooper... if one actor can handle playing two totally different characters both called Face...?
    Also from the A-Team, Sharlto Copley (Murdoch) could make a good Tom Phanan perhaps?

    On your Ysanne Isard, Cate Blanchette is naturally Blonde though of course hair dye can sort that out. I still struggle to imagine her in this role.

    Definitely liking Zsinj Hopkins :)

    Looking back at my previous posts, I am actually cringing at most of them. Damn Ferus Olin...messing with my mental images of characters.
    Wes Janson - Owen Wilson
    I don't remember exactly where I first saw this pick, but it is stuck in my head now. Feel free to think of someone better.
    Nas Ghent - Nicolas Cage
    This is the only choice for Nas Ghent.
