    Okay, let's put away the issue of what he will be called. What will he play?

    I guess that I should have clarified that my speculation was not fact. Thank you.


    I am going to guess that he is not playing a person who is gifted with swords.

    Makes sense in a way. JJ is creative enough not to give him the exact same role he had in GoT. Then again, everyone expects him to grab a lightsaber at one point. He didn't have much roles beside Syrio, so who knows what he can play convincingly. You have anything in mind?

    I had the pleasure of working with him on a short film not too long ago. Fantastic guy, I'm really happy for him.

    Funnily enough, the shoot was not long after the sequel trilogy announcement and I remember us all talking about who we think might direct. As an added bonus, he also had a play with my lightsaber.

    Plays Shakespearean fools and clowns often. Interesting. I wonder if that plays a part in his character?

    i had wondered if he was a swordfighting/lightsaber duelling double for mark hamill, but after watching that interview i think that would be a waste acting wise.

    Would be interesting. A jester. So far we had two jesters in star wars. That little freak of Jabba (not gonna attempt to spell his name) and in the EU we had Onimi (I think) who basically masterminded the Yuuzhan Vong war, the most deadly and costly military event in star wars history.

    I met him in 1995. I'm 5'10" and he was barely shorter than me but taller than my brother who is between 5'7" and 5'8". He's definitely close to 5'9" if he isn't right at it.

    He may be as tall as Hamill but looks even less like him than Kyle Katarn.

    Queen Leia's fool.

    Who she also practices lightsaber sparring with, periodically. Because her brother, who was supposed to train her, has been missing for some time.

    That's kind of awesome. It'd be cool if he were her political aid, something like the Senator Palpatine to her Amidala in TPM, but more of a comic relief character, and then they both unexpectedly pulled out lightsabers when the time calls for it.

    Miltos and Oscar Isaac have very similar, controlled-chaos curly hair. Mayhap they are related in the film?

    If the dude who had a lot of swordplay on Game of Thrones isn't wielding a lightsaber in a Star Wars movie, I would be shocked.

    I honestly would be a bit shocked if they gave him a lightsaber. It would be like casting the kid who played Joffrey to play a spoiled little Sith twit.

    Yes, it is a pity that Jar Jar wasn't used to fulfil the role of the jester/wise fool. He would have been a much more affective character in that role of the idiot who sees more clearly than the sane people/the one who can speak his mind to politicians and get away with it.

    I hope this Miltos chap does play a role like that because it would work well in the Star Wars universe.
