    You know the drill people. George Lucas just gave you the greenlight and opened up his checkbook. It's time for you to make the phone calls, choose the actors and actresses that best fit YOUR fan fic.

    Who's first?

    *laughs* The only original characters I've got are the ones in The Edge of Your Shadow, and they're easy. Princess Kiele is Leelee Sobiesky, and Talwan is Wayne Knight.

    I don't suppose we can use actors that are dead or aged by now, can we? Because there were only two names I recognized in everyone else's entries!

    Well, I cast dead actors all the time, when I'm reading books by authors I like!

    Trett and Arwen I haven't found the perfect
    actors for yet.

    Milo Taival ("Bound to Happen") is a younger version of the kid that played Brandon in Galaxy Quest.

    Master Myron ("Bonds and Beauty") is Sam Waterston.

    Senator Saylor (also "Bonds and Beauty") is James Mason (who's dead, but I don't care. You can do wonders with CGI, nowadays...)

    Wow, Jemmiah! You packed in almost all of my favorite actors in there!

    Sean Bean! Colin Firth! Rufus Sewell! Jamie Bamber! The list just goes on and on....

    My very short list:

    Damaeo Niveh : Damian Lewis

    Healer Tolm : John Hurd

    Rina Vayda : Nicole Kidman

    I DO have an actor in mind for Lewix Winchard but if I revealed it, it would be too obvious what movie I had JUST seen to get inspired.

    Senator Dinary : Stanley Tucci

    Ismala Dinary : Erika Christensen

    All other characters I usually get inspired by musicians so....unless some of them decide to do some acting... ;)

    EDIT: Some changes. Got inspired.

    Well I don't have a lot of OCs, (and not all have made appearances yet). Plus, I know very limited modern actors so don't be surprised if you see a lot of dead ones.


    From War Within:

    Syana Kyle
    Claire Forlani (never saw her in anything but I saw her picture on a WOT cast list. Looked just about right for Syana). And the characterization is straight from me.

    Sgt. Garis Taledor
    He looks kinda like a young Tem Morrison I think. But since he's too old and already in Star Wars... Tom Sizemore (The classic war movie face) has the attitude. He's based off Ding Chavez from Rainbow 6.

    Lt. Frances Demetter
    I know this is the dumbest pick ever, and it really really bothers me. But somehow, no matter how much I DESPISE this movie, she seems right for the part (and the name doesn't help). Baby (Jennifer Grey) from Dirty Dancing.

    Carel Kyle
    This was hard. I needed someone who could play a snobby, polished character, but still get in some fighting. No pretty boys like Josh Hartnett or Affleck, so I'll go with Jude Law.

    General Vithara
    I based him on George S. Patton. So George C. Scott naturally!


    From Blue Orchids:

    Deric Yawson
    Someone you could hate easily, but you wouldn't think you would. A charmer, with a dark side. Pat Howard, don't ask.

    :D

    Hmmm...

    Hendrix Empyrean (who is in BTSS and Twilight of Innocence)the young version: Colin Hanks
    Older version: Carson Daly (althought I don't think he really acts)

    And the only other person I can think of right now:

    Ariana Jancu'th(Obi-wan's sister): Julianne Moore

    People people people! You're leaving out some great actors and actresses!


    Freddie Jones
    Vincent Schiavelli
    Angus Scrimm
    Leo McKern
    Ralph Fiennes
    Ellen Burstyn

    Character actors work great.

    I love Ralph Fiennes! [face_love] :D And in Schindler's List he's brilliant - almost as Liam himself. ;)

    Anyways, this character is from Amidala_Skywalker's story, "If the Mask Fits: Chosen One", but she's based on me, so I hope she doesn't mind me putting it here... ;)

    Maya Tasco - Keira Knightley

    When Am was doing the art for Maya and Obi-Wan, she used a picture from Keira's website. And I must say that she really looks like me... at least a little bit... ;) :p :D

    Oh, guys, I had a great idea the other day! Judy Dench would make a FABULOUS Jedi Master! I don't have anywhere to put her right now, in any of the stories I'm working on, but someone please, please cast her in something. I can just picture her standing up to a recalcitrant warlord with that eyebrow of hers! (Remember her as Queen Elizabeth? Or M?)

    I've got Michelle Yeoh as a Senator, but I haven't posted the story yet. (It's only 1/3 finished, so it's gonna be a while).

    I'm thinking if you crossed John Bye with Robert Carlyle, you'd be close to Trett. Someone think of an actor who's the human equivalent of a Golden Retriever? That's who I'm looking for...
