    Yay for Fragile Hope and LOL on Mara's reaction to the beard. Not every dude can pull off the beard thing and look distinguished -- glad he can pull it off. :p

    Don't want Luke in Ep#7 to look too much like a hermit :eek:

    I saw him today. He very deliberately stroked his beard during the parade. :D

    Beard stroking could be taken so many different ways. [face_devil]

    OK, BEHAVE Y'ALL :p

    My muse is back and wants to write so much! It's great, except for this stupid essay in the way, but after that, I WILL FINISH MY NANOWRITEMO (that I failed miserably). I've been thinking about doing a July Nano, but with how delicate my muse is, it's probably a bad idea.

    Am I the only one not loving the beard? I preferred the stubble, personally.

    The Ep VII challenge is still going, right? I have finally been inspired.

    I don't like the beard either, but it would hide many flaws of his face that resulted from his auto accident and reconstructive surgery. I'm not saying he looks bad, but he doesn't look like that 'Too hot to be a widow' drawing we all love.

    Yeah, the beard hides all the flaws from the accident that are now showing with aging. But it hides the dimples, which...damn.

    All in all though? He looks fantastic!

    He does look great and I didn't want to sound crass about his looks, but he actually looks younger with the beard. I saw a nice drawing of him over on Starwars7news.

    Yup, that fan art has been going around since last year some time. The artist is Phil Noto.

    Oh, I think he looks great, and in the photo the beard actually looks alright, but watching the video it's a bit scruffy for my liking. That and the beard would seem to indicate widower/hermit Luke, which I guess was expected...

    Well, I think once he gets to set it'll be groomed to match whatever Luke's circumstances are. He might have been told to grow it out as much as possible and then they'll take care of it, you know?

    I'm just in awe of the weight loss, honestly. He looks trim and fabulous.

    Because everybody knows guys with beards never get the chicks. :p Don't be so negative. Maybe Mara liked him scruffy. I do think the make up people will probably do something to make that beard look acceptable.

    Eh, it's a personal thing, I'm not fond of full beards. I don't mean to be negative, I really do think he looks great :)

    I didn't mean don't be negative against beards JadeLotus. I just meant that if Luke does have a beard in EP7 don't give up on Mara appearing. I am hoping against hope that J.J. won't totally disregard characters from the EU (and I mean characters, not necessary EU back stories). If you are going to give H/L kids why not call them Jaina or Jacen instead of making the movies totally foreign to the people who kept SW alive between the movies by providing a big influx of EU money. I have always seen a two tier level of SW fans. There are the movie goers and then the people who go a step beyond and do cosplay, fan art, fan fiction, fan movies and such. It is like the difference between a Firefly fan and a Brown coat. I would never compare my Firefly fandom as even approaching Brown coat level.

    I do think the beard was a good choice for Mark because it does cover a lot of the scars and the aging. Mark IMO couldn't pull off the 'too hot to be a widower' Luke, but he does look great. The beard is a bit scruffy, but if he's at SW Weekends, then I don't think he's filming yet (I could be wrong), so it could fill out more. But the weight loss is pretty incredible.

    But I understand personal preferences. I hate stubble - it either gotta be a full beard or clean shaven.

    I like the look of military men (short hair and no facial hair), but since I have been around military men all my life I guess that is normal.

    And yes, I know guys can have a mustache in the military, but it is frowned upon with officers.

    Mark did say today that he wished George had given him a girlfriend. So there's that. ;)
