I cheched the net for some Luke-casting ideas and it didn't exactly calm me. Andrew Garfield, Liam Hemsworth, Josh Hutcherson, Joseph Gordon-Levitt... Garrett Hedlund, Michael Pitt, Topher Gravce, Charle Hunnam, Paul Dano, Scott McClure and Anton Yelchin Most of these are chosen because they'r hot right now or because of their cool-quality I can't say I know most of them, but a few clicks on YouTube definitely made me balk. Paul Dano was intense - but I hate to say I'd lilke my Luke a bit more... dashing... ScottMcClure has something but Anton Yelchin was more like it. Actually Yelchn was th eonly one who seemed even a little towards the right kind. But as for lost of them - gotta quote Stackpole: "You're good - but you're no Luke Skywlaker!" I think the problem with castin/writing Luke is partly his many facets that even writers tend to forget (the farmboy, the rogue and later the JediMaster) - but also the fact that in his bascis - he's not cool at all!!!. I've met a lot of people who don't like Mark Hamill - and I think this is becasue he play the role full out - exposing the nerve - and that makes many people crinche! No, Luke isn't cool - but he learns how to become it!!! And problem with him in mature age is, that there should still be an inch of this nerve close to surface!!! I honestly can't see many do that. Then, of course, the Mara castings are even worse. "Give Christina Hendricks a lightsaber ". Gaaaahhhhhh!!!!!
