    I know she isn't an actor, but Michele Bachman really needs to be recruited to play Daala. Might be a good career change after the presidential run was a bust????

    Nah, I think Nic Cage would be better as Revan, now that we know what he looks like.

    Alright, I'm sold. CQuigley: Just because I can't think of any right now, doesn't mean it didn't happen.

    I never thought I'd see the day when questions like "Who should play Jaina" are actually a legitimate concern.

    Nic Cage would be better as everyone.

    Also, David Cross has had Thrawn nailed down for years:

    So guys, I think the time has come.

    The time has come to pool our resources (albeit limited from living in our parents' basements) and dare the undareable. Think the unthinkable. Do the impossible. Commit the one true act that will allow our names to live on in the memories of Litizens of future generations to come.

    Some way, some how, through spam internet petitions or staking out on Skywalker Ranch the Cinderella Castle grounds, we must convince LFL/Disney to cast Steve Martin as Cal Omas.

    [​IMG][​IMG]

    ....aaaaand convince them to make him the ST villain. All the STs would instantly win Oscars since Steve Martin's always hosting.
    ....aaaaaaaaaaaand we must convince them to give him his own spin-off series. Those would undoubtedly win more Oscars. Cal Omas would become a household name.
    ....aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaand we must convince them to make a Broadway musical starring Cal Omas called "King Hutt". It would have a kickass ensemble. Omas would be totally decked out in his Naga Sadow finest. I dunno who the Hutt would be -- Rotta I guess? They can use Detour's canned punk-Rotta design. Regardless, "King Hutt" would win Grammys up the wazoo.

    I dunno guys, LFL/Disney can't go wrong here. Steve Martin has been providing quality entertainment for generations. Star Wars has been providing quality entertainment for one generation and maybe subpar entertainment for two more. There's a reason Steve Martin is asked to host the Oscars all the time. Heck, he's probably the Sith Lord of the Oscars -- he IS the Academy!


    So Disney you want an Oscar? Sour your million Pixar films didn't win an Award yet? Well they won't because they're cartoons.
    And LucasFilm, you PO'ed none of your last seven six (I WILL NOT COUNT THAT TCW FIASCO!) films didn't win nada? Well they won't because they're sci-fi, and the Academy will always turn their nose up at you.

    So you guys want a shot at the Big One? Vote Steve Martin for Cal Omas. He's your man.

    I think Cesare Gorgi... I mean Francois Arnaud as Jacen

    I think he could do a good job with Jacen's 'fall'. He is an awesome actor.

    Julia Gilard she is also a crazy leader of a government that came to power under less then clear circumstances.

    Any ideas for ACTORS though?

    As much as I'd love to see Michele Bachmann in the role of a female villain, I wouldn't want any of the female villains in Star Wars to be soiled by being played by Michele Bachmann.

    I5-YQ - Hugh Grant (voice)
    Talon Karrde - Daniel Day Lewis ala Bill the Butcher
    Palleaon - James Brolin

    Look Disney, it's Cade Skywalker. Use him in a movie now.

    It's Todd Lasance playing Caesar in Spartacus: War of the Damned. I couldn't stop imagining him with a lightsaber the whole time. Even his mannerisms fit with the future Skywalker character.

    Thoughts?

    He looks a lot like Cade. If Disney does a Legacy spin off, they should hire him.

    I've posted these before over at the other one, but these are some of my ideas, or who I hear in my head (and they do not keep to one particular era, kinda all over the place):

    Dash Rendar : Dennis Quaid
    Jax Pavan : Josh Lucas
    I5YQ : Hugh Grant (voice)
    Thrawn : Hugo Weaving (again moreso the voice)
    Garm Bel Iblis or Palleaon : Sam Elliot
    Talon Karrde : Daniel Day Lewis (kinda in the same vein as his Bill the Butcher)
    Cade : Paul Walker
    Jeriah Syn : Gary Dourdan
    Droma : Lee Van Cleef
    Nom Anor : Skeletor (voice)
    Mara Jade : That red head from Under the Dome
    Antares Draco : Eric Bana
    Corran Horn : Eric Stolz
