Yelchin could definitely play a Skywalker. I'm sure he could do both Star Trek and Star Wars because the characters will be different enough.

And when I say a Skywalker, I don't mean Luke. Even though this thread is for recasting.

for a young luke, maybe... but if this takes place after, Return of the Jedi, we need someone who looks closer to this, luke...

... or even older

That's why I said I don't want Yelchin playing Luke.

Yeah, Luke should be at least in his early 30s. Also, I highly doubt they'd want Yelchin, since he's already tied to Star Wars' #1 competitor for the sci-fi geek crown.

Never heard of it. Is it one of those cult things like A for Andromeda?

Yep, it's fully possible in this day and age. CG and makeup can take years off of Hamill. I really can't see anyone else for the role.

I say cast Hamill as a same-age Luke Skywalker. If he's elderly, it would give meaning to the whole "When 900 years you reach, look as good you will not, hmm?" line Yoda gives. Then kill off Luke and have him appear as a Force Ghost--YES.

Mark still looks ok for being 61. He looks rough but younger than his actual age. I'd say he can easily play Luke in his early 50's but he'll need to lose some weight. He needs to get fit!!

And if Harrison Ford wants to get back in touch with his younger, more popular self, as in Indiana Jones IV, we may see Han as well. Sometimes when people get that age they leap at chances like this to prove they still have it, and I see something of that mentality in Ford.

Jeff Bridges in TRON: Legacy, also by Disney. People are rather split as to how realistic that looked, but SW VII will obviously have a larger budget than T:L. It's a hint that's the path they may take.

Yeah, that's from Jeff Ross roasting Carrie Fisher, it's still hilarious.

Yeah, plus T:L had a fully CG Bridges. Luke most likely won't be, so it will be easier and less noticeable.

Leonardo DiCaprio as the late 30's/early 40's Luke Skywalker FTW!

If Leo can't be had, then Liam Hemsworth would work.

CG Luke is just a waste of money imo unless they get the tech right
