    Yeah, it's interesting that he appears in so many different stories. Didn't exactly see that coming from the Onderon arc of TCW.

    It's because he's so awesome in Rogue One. His character screams "Back Story".

    He like some outside agent who got the backing of the goverment and soon, ocne it changes regime they abondon him and hunt for him and he becomes a rebel and later a terrorist to the empire. He was the first rebel, and he was trained by Dart Vader himself, and later in life becomes just like him. He's what you become if the fight consumes you. I think Saw's story is a by product of the empire. He probaly became more violent when he saw the horroes the empire did to his people and the innocent.

    Saw Gerrera is a character that for me gets better with each re-watch. He's not on screen that much, but in those moments you really wonder just WTF happened to that guy to get him to the point he's at.

    I think Forest did by far the best acting job in the movie. There's not a lot in the dialogue, it really requires a performance to bring the character to life. I don't know if it's true, but it's pretty easy to assume Forest was chosen based on his performance as Idi Amin.

    I like Forest in this a lot, but for me he’s just a touch too OTT, and as such the least successful of the Rogue One ensemble.

    Yeah, he was so out there that I couldn't take him seriously.
