    I was originally all for Gary Oldman (that guy can play anyone!) until I saw the Patriot. Col. Tavington just oozed Tarkin-ness. Although something may have to be done about Tarkins first name though. IMDB credits his name as Wilhuff Tarkin. Wilhuff?!?!?

    I always thought Gabriel Byrne would make a good young Tarkin :) He's got that angled "skull like" face...LOL. Apologies to Mr. Byrne...LOL.

    I always thought that Robert Carlyle would be a good Tarkin. He certainly has the look.

    I'd go with either Ralph Fiennes or the guy who played the father in "The Others"...I think his name is Christopher Eccleston. Jason Isaacs wouldn't be a bad choice either, though I personally see him more as Lucius Malfoy in "Harry Potter" now.

    i have to retract my robert carlyle vote and go with ralph fiennes as well. i saw an interview with him today and immediately saw how perfect he'd be.

    Ralph Fiennes wouldn't be a bad choice I guess. I just see him as his Strange Days character. All the time. Eh, what can you do.

    You could just image Robert Carlyle... "Obi, I needs a smoke!" :p

    Ralph Fiennes would be okay, I guess. But like Meri, all I can imagine him doing he redoing his Red Dragon role.
