    Hello folks and welcome to the Official Casting Contest!
    First, thanks mods for allowing me to do this and I hope everyone has fun.

    Before I get into how we play let me make a point of the number #1, unbreakable, may the mods have mercy on your account if you break it, rule: This thread is not for discussing casting rumors so if that’s what you want to do please go to the designated thread for that discussion. Thanks. :)

    So, with that out of the way let me explain how the contest works:

    Contest Rules:

    1. You are allowed one entry and you cannot change your answer once submitted
    2. You are allowed to submit as many or as few actors in your entry as you want
    3. No entry posted after the cast has been announced will be accepted
    4. No returning actors will be accepted
    5. In the event that there are individual casting announcements instead of one large one no actor announced can be submitted (I will of course accept them if they’re submitted before the announcement is made)
    6. You may submit any actor you choose even if they haven’t been rumored
    I will award a point for each correct name submitted but here’s the twist: To prevent anyone from simply posting all the actors who have been rumored I will deduct half a point for each wrong name submitted. So choose your names well!

    The contest will continue until filming begins in May by which point we should have the full cast and a winner(s) can be determined. The thread will then be locked by a mod.

    For your convenience I have gathered a list of the actors who have been rumored thus far:


    Jonathan Rhys-Meyers
    Chloe Grace-Moretz
    Saoirse Ronan
    Chiwetel Ejiofor
    Benedict Cumberbatch
    Jesse Plemons
    Adam Driver
    Michael Fassbender
    Hugo Weaving
    Sullivan Stapleton
    David Oyelowo
    Michael B. Jordon
    Zac Efron
    Judi Dench
    Rachel Hurd-Wood
    Alex Pettyfer
    Ryan Gosling
    Leonardo DiCaprio
    Ksenia Solo
    John Noble
    Emmanuelle Chriqui
    Alexis Dziena
    Taissa Farmiga
    Jason Flemyng
    Daniel Day-Lewis
    Gary Oldman
    Jack O'Connell
    Martin McCann
    Jack Reynor
    Lily Collins

    I make no guarantees that this is a complete list of every single actor rumored for a role but I've done my best to assure that it's a least a good majority of them.

    So I hope everyone has fun and let the game begin!

    EHT Edit: Added two names (in blue). Added another name in green. And another in purple.

    Oh and just a note: I will update the list of rumored actors if I remember any more or if any one else is rumored. I want to make sure it's a comprehensive list so you won't have to go scouring the interwebs for their names. :)

    Don't be so sure. If i told you half the things I've heard about this casting process you'd probably short-circuit!

    Of the already rumored actors/actresses these are the ones I felt had the best shots of making the cut. While its likely some of these are compeating for the same role, sometimes the runner up gets offered another role hence why my list is longer than I feel it should be. That or I just can't make up my mind, lol.

    Edit: gonna be a good sport and like everyones bets. Just cause... ;)

    Let me know if you want those updates made via edits to your original post; probably best to keep it all in one place.

    And just to make sure everyone saw this part, you do realize Chiznuk "will deduct half a point for each wrong name submitted", right? Some lists are looking pretty long... maybe people are just very confident. :p

    Thanks @EHT. I agree it'll be much cleaner if it's edited into my original post. :)

    Ksenia Solo - Han and Leia's daughter
    Hugo Weaving - Imperial Commander
    Gary Oldman - Sith Master
    Vera Farmiga - Mother of Luke's Child
    Michael Fassbender - Jedi
    David Oyelowo - Jedi

    Alexis Dziena - Nightsister/Bounty Hunter
    Chiwetel Ejiofor - Senator

    -------
    I added roles because it helped me imagine a possible cast. I think it's possible we get a Han and Leia son too, but I'm unwilling to go with Driver or Effron at this point. I think it would be cool if we had two Solo daughters, their personalities opposite.

    You actually reminded me of a point I intended to make in my original post but forget: It's totally cool if you want to guess the characters the actors will be playing but it will not count positively or negatively to your overall score right or wrong. I wanted to make the point system as simple as possible so I don't have a dozen categories to have to calculate when the time comes to tally up the entries.

    And also I want to give credit to @Dra--- for coming up with the idea of a contest and allowing me to run with it. :)

    Contests are fun. Better than us going stir crazy and chopping each other up into bite size pieces.

    Come to think of it, Gary Oldman would be incredible in a Star Wars movie.

    Just want to point this out these three won't count as they would be returning but I'm assuming you were joking anyways so no harm done. The rest are good. :)

    Although I sense they will pull a "Superman vs Batman" (aka all the new cast members be people we never even thought of or knew were even being considered), if I had to guess I'd say:

    Benedict Cumberbatch


    Chiwetel Ejiofor


    Gary Oldman

    Jesse Plemons

    (even though I'm hesitant on the Plemons since I've seen dozens of times actors and directors confirming they've talked but then have nothing happened so thats kinda why I still think the people actually cast are those we dont know about but hey....its a fun contest so who knows :) )
