I love how these threads tell us more about the fetishistic leanings of members than anything else. Evidently, those opposed to Carrie in a bikini have never downloaded anything labelled "Mature Porn." Now, back to the topic at hand. Perhaps Luke will only exist as a hologram or other recorded message. Perhaps 7, 8, and 9 will be some elaborate "Search for Skywalker" story arc. Perhaps anything. I am just glad that Mark isn't wagging his tail like a dog and that he is actually interested in evaluating the script. Which tells me he wants to do it but needs to see a script and not just a treatment or idea. And the whole age thing is pointless. Hollywood rarely casts an actor of specific age for a character of specific age. This is called "acting." If Mark can pull it off, then so be it. He seems honest enough about his own abilities. Don't worry, everyone. We're not going to get the William Shatner effect. Remember, The Shat looked old but fairly healthy in Wrath of Kahn. By The Voyage Home, he resembled one of the whales he was saving - that's someone not caring about how they come across in a film, only that they're in it. I'm pretty sure he and the other(s) would be involved in some capacity (no matter how limited) just to bridge the films. Then, they can retire to the Mos Eisley Bar and Grill for the rest of their lives.
