    This is a hard fricken contest. You have to make decisions about how many Sky-Solos, whether Luke will have a wife, and even who makes the best master-apprentice Sith combo. Hard decisions!!!

    Having said that, Vera Farmiga as Luke's wife is genius on my part. Someone hire me as a casting director now! (I'll flip burgers too.)

    I want to let everyone know of an amendment I'm making to rule #5. It's nothing major and hopefully it won't even be needed but I'm telling you now because I don't want to just spring it on everyone if does happen. In the event that one of the trades reports that an actor has been signed (not in talks but actually signed onto the film) that actor can no longer be submitted. The reason for this is because unlike rumor sites the trades are as close to being official without it coming from starwars.com as you can get and I feel like it wouldn't be fair to those who didn't have this information when they submitted their entry if new entries can use this information. I hope everyone sees this as fair and thanks to everyone who has submitted thus far. :)

    Isn't she like 40? 22 years younger than Mark? Kinda not normal for SW to have a mid 20's kid

    60 year old men and 40 year old women is pretty normal. Luke has some major game.

    If Luke's son is 25 she gave birth at 15. That's not normal in the SW universe.

    Come on. Maybe she was 20 or so. Or you just say she's 50 in the movie. Easy to work around.

    You don't have to give me a hard time for that to happen. Vera is a fantasy I'm willing to lose points on. ;)

    I admit to really liking the actress enough to not care, since it could be done right even still.

    Age her a bit with make up for 'present' day stuff, and have her out of aging makeup for old holorecordings of her and Luke (but him in deaging makeup)... plus it would leave wide open the possibility of using her 20 some odd year younger sister Taissa playing either their daughter or even older holorecordings of her to explain her backstory (that's actually how Taissa got into acting, helping her sister by playing her sisters character as a teen for the flashbacks).

    Not sure I want this but it is appealing (based on how good of an actress she is) and intreaging to me (of how they deal with the age difference).

    I like that Dra was bold in this casting guess, its fun considering outside the box choices.

    I've always wanted one of those game/contest winner doohickies :D. Okay, come on. Use the Force, Juke!

    Benedict Cumberbatch
    John Noble
    Gary Oldman
    Zac Efron
    Jesse Plemons

    I went short and safe. If the cast is indeed "locked", as recent reports suggest, then I'll go with the actors most recently rumored (save for Cumberbatch and Noble, who've been rumored forever).

    Enough with Benedict Cumberbatch. He was already in star trek. If we are going that route then may as well have the whole star trek crew on board.

    I want to add Jack Reynor to my list. I know there is a denial out there, but I think he could be Luke's son.

    Darth Chiznuk can confirm this, but one of his rules says, "You are allowed one entry and you cannot change your answer once submitted".

    True enough. No need to add him to the list then.
