If you happen to be one of the many who is following along with all the latest Star Wars hubbub, you most likely heard more than a fair share of names being dropped into the casting hat for the upcoming movies.
Practically everybody and their mom (yes, quite possibly my mom) wants to snag a role in the new Star Wars trilogy. Seriously – everyone from legit stars to B-listers to relative unknowns want in on what will surely be a piece of cinematic history.
Corey Feldman announced how he’d love to step into the role of Han Solo’s (Harrison Ford) son. Yes, Corey Feldman. Let me be frank when I say no one but Corey Feldman wants Corey Feldman to be in Star Wars. He’s pretty much campaigning for himself which, in retrospect, I’m pretty sure no big-shot Hollywood director has ever said “I want Corey Feldman to be the star of my movie.”
We’re scraping the bottom of the barrel folks! So what’s one more name added to the incredibly long list, right? This might be perhaps the weirdest casting rumor to date. Ted, from this past summer’s comedy flick, wants to enter in on the fray. Making the announcement from his Facebook page, the foul-mouthed Seth McFarlane voiced character apparently had a dream he’d star in a future Star Wars film.
Last night I had a dream that I was cast in the new Star Wars movie as an Ewok bounty hunter with a checkered past. I got to kill Jar Jar and then blame it on that whiny little bitch, Wicket. I got to kill him too. It was awesome.
So what do you think? Does Ted have the acting chops to take on that envisioned role? Is the end of the world truly right around the corner? I don’t pretend to have all the answer,s but I’m positive Ted in a Star Wars film is what the Mayan’s predicted.
