Star Wars Sequel Trilogy Fan Cast
6.51. Tobey Maguire
Tobey Maguire as Luke Skywalker
-I don't know how this one will be responded to, but I think this could work. There's just something about him that makes me think he would fit the part well. Back in the day as Spider-Man he played the young and somewhat naive hero, sort of like how Luke Skywalker was in the Original Trilogy. By this time he'd obviously older and wiser, and I still think Maguire could play that. In his recent role in BROTHERS he showed a great level of dramatic intensity in that role.
7.92. Hugh Jackman
6.93. Maggie Gyllenhaal
7.64. Will Smith
Will Smith as Lando Calrissian
-Now don't start laughing just yet. Lando Calrissian played by Billy Dee Williams back in the day was the king of cool. Nowadays we've got Will Smith. He has the charisma to play Lando, and has done a blend of comedic and serious dramatic work in his career. Both of which would help him in this role.
7.85. Ewan McGregor
Ewan McGregor as Obi-Wan Kenobi
-I know it's really popular to slam the acting of the prequel trilogy. But no matter what's said I firmly believe that Ewan McGregor did a fantastic job as Obi-Wan, especially in Episodes II and III. The man's a very talented actor, and very much resembles Sir Alec Guinness. Just use some make up to make him look like the older Obi-Wan if his ghost were to appear again and then you'd be set.
56. Peter Mayhew
7.47. Rachel Nichols
7.38. Hugo Weaving
7.59. Bill Nighy
Bill Nighy as Darth Plagueis
-Heh, I thought why not cast this role. I remember around the time of REVENGE OF THE SITH's release there were rumors going around that a character involved in REVENGE OF THE SITH would be the villain of the sequel trilogy. (Or at least I think that was a rumor, could somebody clear that up?). I thought through the characters, and all I could think of was Darth Palgueis. How do you get worse and stronger than Palpatine? I thought perhaps maybe that rumor was pointing towards his master! We technically never saw his death, and if he was as powerful as made out to be, then maybe there's a way he could've survived. As for an actor, I really like Bill Nighy. He was great as the villains Davy Jones in PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN, as well as Viktor in UNDERWORLD. Also, like Hugo Weaving he's got an awesome voice. I don't think there's a high chance this would happen, but as I said this one was just for a bit of fun.
