Actors [In reply to] Can't Post

I think Benedict Cumberbatch is the most likely to get a role in the new Star Wars trilogy for J.J Abrams has a tendancy to cast actors he had worked with and Benedict did a great job in Star Trek: Into Darkness.

Actually, none of them. [In reply to] Can't Post

But if I had to pick one, I guess it would be Cumberbatch. I like him the least..

haven't given it a thought [In reply to] Can't Post

Didn't really see the last three Star Wars films. (I mean, I rented them, but fast-forwarded a LOT. And counted how many scenes began with a ship taking off or landing - SEVENTEEN in one film alone!) George Lucas lost it with "Return of the Jedi" imho. But if he's not writing or directing and the reviews are positive, I might see the new ones. It would appropriate for them to cast unknowns, like they did with the first films (except Sir Alec).

I would prefer none of them [In reply to] Can't Post

I prefer not to see actors I'm familiar with in movies like these. I like to just see the character, not the actor.

I think any of those 5 would be worth seeing. [In reply to] Can't Post

I picked RA but it was a tough call.

MF: the great "everyman" guy could probably fit in "everyfilm" - would he choose SW or have something less "risky" that he might prefer?

IM: he has fantastic experience and is a wonderful actor - but both his bearded and unbearded faces have already been transformed into iconic massively recurring main characters on the big screen - although he did pull it off once (Magneto to Gandalf - presto!) so perhaps I underestimate his acting powers

OB: I like him but feel like he is taking more steps towards romantic lead roles - which might not shine much in SW (however - if I am wrong and a romantic lead is a big part of SW then he would fit there imho)

BC: this guy plays awesome villains and I am sure he could do it again - but having BC be the main villain in too many big blockbuster series starts to feel a little bit like making Sauron the real villain behind everything ME ... maybe stretching it?

RA: I am wiling to bet that power-politics and drama both feature in SW alongside a slightly mysterious and slightly shady element - sounds good for RA!

I would not wish that fate on any of them [In reply to] Can't Post

Sadly, Star Wars has been stretched too thin, like butter over too much bread.
