What actor/actress would you like to see in new Star Wars Movies?

Beside the already interested main cast from the original films (& prequel films.....??) for the new trilogy, what actors/actresses would you like involved in the new films? spin-offs included.

I think Dennis Lawson (Wedge) could make a return, possibly now an Admiral in the New Republic.

Jeff Bridges would be great as an old friend/rival of Han Solo

The only character I'd care to see back is Luke.

I think there's something very Star-Warsy in Kevin McKidd He can be rougish, evil, or noble.

Marc Blucas looks like a merge of the Skywalker and Solo gene pools.

Pity he has the charisma of a wet towel.

If Mark Hamill is not in it i won't even bother seeing it.  And yeah i understand he is about 20 years too old for a 40 year old Luke Skywalker.

These damn films should have been fast tracked for production in 1993, but no we had to have those badly made video game commercials with Jar Jar Binks and Hayden.

In my opinion these films should have started going into production in 1983.

But ROTJ was so awful that maybe a break between it and the next one would have been a good idea.

Personally I would like the bulk of the characters to be completely new and played by virtual unknowns with as many of the original actors as available playing Greek Choruscant.

Artoo and Threepio should be the only major OT players.

I'd love to see Chloe Moretz as Han and Leia's daughter.  She could easily pull-off the swagger of Han and the strength of Leia.  Also, Kick-Ass proved that she has great physicality.

I would like to see Russel Crowe, Mel Gibson, and Arnold as the villains.  Then everybody would go to see it.

Not that this is allowed to happen in blockbusters anymore but I can't be the only person who wants unknowns / TV actors with one or two well-established faces as the big bads can I?

I think Rufus Sewell has a great persona for a space opera, either a good guy or a bad.

I always thought that Robert Powell looked a bit like Peter Cushing:

......but he's now 68.....Peter Cushing was 64 when he did Star Wars

^ Along with Christopher Eccleston he would have made a really good Tarkin.

I don't get the love for that guy. He's the most annoying fucking twat on screen. 

Watch him in Gone in 60 seconds, man, he can't play a bad guy for shit. With his grating bloody accent and that fucking stupid smile. As for his Dr Who, thank fuck he left when he did. 

 

What an arse!!

Oh, wait ...

I can no longer call myself a Star Wars fan. I’m sick of the same played-out aesthetics/tropes being remixed/regurgitated time-&-time again; I’m sick of the deteriorating characterization/worldbuilding which have been in play since 1983; I’m sick of the toxic fanboys from all ideological camps; I’m sick of the capitalist pigs who refuse to allow this IP into the public domain where it rightly belongs. So while I may still admire the first two films for their technical achievements and characters, I’m no longer capable of enjoying Star Wars in any capacity due to the reasons delineated above.
