    My top three - Wedge Antilles, Obi-Wan Kenobi and Ben Skywalker. Rustle the order around depending on mood.

    Mine? Wedge, Tycho and Kyp... [face_love] Kyp is always at the top, Wedge and Tycho move order depending on mood.

    Ooh, Tycho is wonderful, but... yeah.

    I have to admit, Wedge is number one far more often than not. I solve it by pulling them all in and making them part of the same family. (I do this to EVERYBODY.)

    Good ensemble cast of Droids, as well (they may be metal and circuits but they need love too!). Whistler and Squeaky being top for me.

    Whistler is so good, he's about half the reason I loved Corran so much. Squeaky is hilarious.

    I'm about to recast my top 5 after rereading some books.

    Wes Janson
    Wedge Antilles
    Anakin Solo
    Luke Skywalker
    Corran/Mirax Terrick Horn (They have to share 5th. They don't mind.)

    For me it's always been Wes Janson with his assorted cohorts. [face_love]

    Obi-Wan Kenobi. I became more of a fan after the PT. There was little to no wavering in his resolve. He saw things very clearly. Yes, he didn't see the level to which Anakin was descending, but who did.

    After that, it gets tougher, but I suppose it has to be Wedge and Tycho.:D

    Old Republic, definitely Obi-Wan. In my opinion, he was the greatest Jedi of the Old Republic in those years leading up to the fall of the jedi.

    For pure character and wisdom I too would choose Obi-Wan Kenobi.

    Seriously, I watch the PT for Obi-Wan, not Anakin.

    Makes me respect Qui-Gon greatly. In TPM Obi-Wan was all about adhering to the strict rules of the Order, but by the end of everything he was a lot like his master.

    He was the closest to a "Normal" character as we got for those movies.

    This guy had some good ideas:

    I've seen that before, and he does have some great ideas... Less of the Obi-wan/Padme though. It just... doesn't work for me.

    Trying to cast the EU and the Next Gen. It's... interesting. (Translation: somewhat frustrating, but fun all the same.)

    Obi-Wan/Padme? No. But yeah, I'd seen it before and his ideas had some potential.

    I may be one of the only fans in the world that actually liked the Obi-Wan/Siri Tachi dynamic...

    I keep stunt-casting the EU books, and I get Jeremy Irons for Thrawn, Sam Elliot for Pellaeon, no problems, but who would play Wedge and the Rogues?

    Now, probably James McAvoy for Wedge, Tom Hardy for Janson,maybe Tahmoh Penikett for Hobbie, no idea for Tych.

    Oh, and Michelle Forbes for Isard. No contest.

    I think Tom Hardy for Janson would work.

    I think I would actually switch James McAvoy and Tom Hardy. For some reason I see Tom Hardy as a really good Wedge.

    I don't like any of those, myself. Just personal opinion. *shrugs* Never found anyone I've liked for the fab four.

    Michelle Forbes would work perfectly for Isard. The others would be more difficult.

    I love Obi-Wan/Siri! It's the only one I do like. Okay, maybe it wasn't explored in any depth - but it was in one of the young readers books, so I didn't expect too much. But there's so much potential there!

    And I read somewhere a suggestion of Michael Fassbender for Tycho.

    Hmmm. I have the problem that I just visualize Tycho as much older than he is.

    Which one is preternaturally young? I thought it was Janson? This is mentioned somewhere in Starfighters of Adumar... I think.

    Yeah, that's Janson. Say he's in his thirties in SoA but can pass for ten years younger.

    I picture them as in the comics so none of those fit for me. And I hate Fassbender.
