    I was just thinking, if Episode VII is supposed to be coming in 2015, wouldn't that mean that casting would need to begin as soon as possible? I hopeful that at some point in 2013 we will start hearing about who some of the actors will be. No names are certain at this point, but many have been suggesting that Mark Hamill and Anthony Daniels could be likely. Time will tell.
    On a side note, after hearing the big news yesterday, my older sons and I were telling my 9 year old that he needs to audition for the role of Darth Maul's grandson. He was all for it!

    I'd love to know how many celebs have already made their interest in playing in the SW universe known.

    Ewan McGreggor has already said on twitter that's he'd love to reprise the role.

    I don't imagine many have since the release of RotS, but I imagine that number is now going to rise. Significantly.

    Nathan Fillion
    David Tennant
    Alex Pettyfer (can continue the whiny)

    Don't know what roles and really, with the exception of Nathan, the other two are just eye candy.

    I think I'd rather have a thread "Who should NOT be cast in ep VII":

    Snoop Dogg
    Any Kardashian
    Snooki or any cast member of Jersey Shore
    Honey Boo Boo
    Miley Cyrus

    Really hope we see Actors with charisma and presence.

    If we see the likes of Fassbender, Hardy, Idris Elba, Chris Hemsworth, Renner, Emily Blunt, Scarlett Johansen etc we would be in for a treat.

    Isn't Christian Bale a massive SW fan? There must be plenty out there. I imagine Disney/ Kathleen Kennedy are getting a lot of calls from various agents.

    Who would be best to play Jaina Solo or Ben Skywalker?

    Micheal Fassbender. Not that I want him, he's just in every big movie lately, and I almost guarantee he will find a way into this one.
    He's the Matt Damon of this decade (by which I mean he's going to be ubiquitous).

    For females, Uma Thurman still got her great looks even in her 40s, and she was beyond impressive in the Kill Bill series.
    She'd make a great Jedi or Sith, whatever the case may be.

    An EU casting thread actually being relevant again?

    Never thought I'd see the day.

    Maybe things will be different with Disney, but in the past there have been very few well know actors in Star Wars movies. Alec Guinness and Peter Cushing in the original trilogy, Samuel L. Jackson, Liam Neeson and Christopher Lee for the prequels, but beyond these, most of the actors were in the early years of their careers and Star Wars was their first huge break. I'm hoping that they will bring on another legendary veteran actor like Guinness, Lee or Cushing though.

    Fassbender would have made a killer young Anakin had they gone with an older character/ actor for the prequels. He even resembles a younger Sebastian Shaw. Daniel Craig could have been Kenobi! Anyway, that's irrelevant now. I guess it depends what the roles available are. I have a feeling we may see some hires (at least a director and writer) fairly soon. If they are aiming for 2015 they need to get a wriggle on.

    I think many people would go rampage if they recast the big 3.

    How is the Great Sith War and KOTOR2 cast?

    I think Liam Nesson should return. What role? No idea. I think I've heard that Ewan McGregor is alright with coming back as Obi-Wan Force ghost

    Whoever does casting (if they do the big three or any other characters from the OT) they should look at the thread that was on Del Rey's site for casting the Thrawn Trilogy

    I am especially excited to watch as Will Smith jockies to have his gifted son secure a major role.

    Nathan Fillion as anyone or anything he wants to be. Even if he wants to play a palmtree.
