    It would be fitting, given that he was in Spaceballs, a spoof of Star Wars.

    If Christopher Lloyd, who had played a Klingon, could have a role in The Mandalorian, why not Bill Pullman? Maybe he plays a planetary monarch, whose daughter is threatened by the First Order or Empire. ;)

    He should be a rockstar who's feeling lonely.

  5. Keanu Reeves as Darth Revan
    Tom Hardy as Darth Bane or Darth Malgus
    Peter Dinklage as a Member of the Yoda Species maybe Vandar Tokare or Adult Grogu or another New Character
    Bryan Cranston as a Old Jedi or Sith
    Michael Mando as Bossk or Jaster Mereel
    Robert Pattinson as a Descendant or Ancestor of Luke and Anakin i think he could play a Good Jacen Solo/Darth Caedus
    Jenna Ortega as a Sith Character

    Owen Wilson continues to be a revelation in Loki, so I'd love to see him do something dramatic in a star war.

    He's been in non-comedies before. No Escape had his character and family trying to escape a SE Asian country (wasn't named) from a coup.

    Yeah, I'd seen that before (as a Bond fan, I showed up for Mr. Brosnan) but thanks all the same! I do remember thinking he was good, but since it was such an outlier back then, it's taken seeing him in Loki to reinforce his range, for me at least.

    Owen Wilson as this chill, dadlike Jedi Master with a constant sense of wow is what my heart needs.

    Heather Langenkamp as a new Mon Mothma kind of character. I saw her recently in Midnight Club, and thought she was great. Plus despite her fame from the Elm Street movies, I think she's not such a big name, so it would be easy for most people to simply see her as the character she's playing, rather than something like, "Oh look, it's Sylvester Stallone pretending to be a Star Wars character...."

    Salma in a dual role as the Tonnika sisters. Are they still canon? I think they could be worked into the Lando film.

    Sure: https://starwars.fandom.com/wiki/Tonnika_sisters

    "The Tonnika sisters, Brea and Senni, were sisters—though not twins—who became infamous criminals. At one point Han Solo and Lando Calrissian met up with the two sisters on a casino ship in the Hydian Way. In another instance, one of the sisters came to hate Lando Calrissian."

    Whoa, they're not twins? Maybe they could retcon them as mother and daughter. Salma and Selena dream team.

    I want to see people with facial differences and disfigurements in unambiguously heroic roles. Off the top of my head, the only specific actors I can think of are Forest Whitaker, who's already in the franchise, and the late Marty Feldman. We need much more - good - representation. Fight the stigma, normalize!

    Daniel Dae Kim
    Glen Morshower
    Vaughn Armstrong

    Somehow, those three seem to pop up in just about everything I like! Kim has the intensity to play a Jedi maybe, while Morshower and Armstrong have long track records of playing military officers, I could see all three fitting into a SW movie quite well.

    Daniel Dae Kim is going to step in Mark Hamill's shoes as Fire Lord Ozai in the live-action Avatar series, so he would be good as a Dark Sider, perhaps.
