Star Wars VII cast – and beyond: Episodes 7-9 : a selection of actors and actresses who could play Jedi, Sith or other charactersby ant-kay | created - 02 Mar 2013 | updated - 28 Apr 2014 | Public
This is a list of actors who I think would be very suitable to play characters in the new Star Wars trilogy, Epsiodes VII - IX, whether it be as Sith or Jedi or other part such as Imperials etc.
In the new movies I'd like to see the Stormtroopers armed with lightsabres, as per Ralph McQuarrie's original concept drawings. It would also be interesting to finally reveal the mysterious Dark Jedi...
Actor | Hairspray
Nervous-looking lead and supporting actor of the American stage and films, with sandy colored hair, pale complexion and a somewhat nervous disposition. He won an Oscar as Best Supporting Actor for his performance in The Deer Hunter (1978), and has been seen in mostly character roles, often ...
To play the main Sith villain, naturally. It would be nice to see him appear, especially considering he was rumoured to have done a screen test for Han Solo, or play Darth Bane in the past.
2. Gina Carano
Actress | Haywire
From pioneering women's MMA to blazing a trail in movies, GINA CARANO is one of Hollywood's most unique rising stars. Carano began her training with Muay Thai to competitive MMA, where she competed in Strikeforce and EliteXC. Her popularity led to her being called the "Face of Women's MMA" and she ...
Athletic Jedi Knight or Sith apprentice, highly skilled in the martial arts, just like the very popular Ray Park. She could even very suitably play one of the Skywalker clan. Alternatively, she could play a superb Imperial Officer / Captain.
Actor | Inception
Few actors in the world have had a career quite as diverse as Leonardo DiCaprio's. DiCaprio has gone from relatively humble beginnings, as a supporting cast member of the sitcom Growing Pains (1985) and low budget horror movies, such as Critters 3 (1991), to a major teenage heartthrob in the 1990s,...
Jedi hero, of course. Has to be, but perhaps a bit of a tearaway... Perhaps one of the Skywalker family carrying Vader's genetics?
Actor | Tasogare Seibei
Hiroyuki Sanada was born on the 12th of October, 1960 in Tokyo. He made his film debut when he was 5 in Game of Chance (1965) (Shin'ichi Chiba played the lead role.) Sanada's father died when he was 11. Sanada joined Japan Action Club, organized and run by Sonny Chiba, when he was 12. Sanada first ...
Jedi Master - takes you back to what the Jedi Knights were based on - Samurai. He could also lead a suitable vehicle for the Star Wars spins offs.
Actor | The Avengers
Thomas William Hiddleston was born in Westminster, London, to English-born Diana Patricia (Servaes) and Scottish-born James Norman Hiddleston. His mother is a former stage manager, and his father, a scientist, was the managing director of a pharmaceutical company. He started off at the preparatory ...
A great choice for a Dark Jedi character who turns from good to evil, with a very high level of lightsabre skills, but maybe an outsider due to his appearances in Thor / Avengers movies? However, now James Spader is taking over as the main villain what better time than to hire Tom? A superb actor at any rate, and a top addition to the Star Wars franchise... I know he would be very popular.
Actor | Den 12. mann
Jonathan Rhys Meyers was born Jonathan Michael Meyers on July 27, 1977, in Dublin, Ireland, to Mary Geraldine (Meyers) and John O'Keeffe, a musician. He and his family moved to County Cork, Ireland, when the actor was nearly a year old, and then, at the age of 3, his father left the family, leaving...
He would be perfect playing an unbalanced Jedi Knight turning to the Darkside to become one of the Dark Jedi... Son of Solo / Darth Cadeus?
Update (May 2013) – He's been selected as the first possible, official new Star Wars actor – Let's hope so, as I'm sure he would do real justice to a role – Watch this space!!
Actress | Let Me In

Actor | Hannibal
Mads Mikkelsen's great successes parallel those achieved by the Danish film industry since the mid-1990s. He was born in Østerbro, Copenhagen, to Bente Christiansen, a nurse, and Henning Mikkelsen, a banker.
Starting out as a low-life pusher/junkie in the 1996 success Pusher (1996), he slowly grew ...
Proved himself as a great Bond villian - now how about for the next SW trilogy as a Sith Lord, or even an Admiral for the darkside? He would rule the fleet with an iron fist for sure. He has already been mentioned as perfect to the part of Darth Malgus or another Darth character.
9. Rosie Marcel
Actress | Holby City
Rosie Marcel was born on May 6, 1977 in Roehampton, London, England as Rosie Ellen Celine Marcel. She is an actress, known for Holby City (1999), Holby Blue (2007) and The Castle of Adventure (1990). She has been married to Ben Stacey since March 27, 2013. They have one child. She was previously ...
Surely destined to play Asajj Ventress or Darth Talon? Her piercing eyes say everything. Her high cheek bones add an extra menacing dimension to her look. She could play a terrifying Sith villain to the greatest effect. I reckon her character would embody all that the darkside represents, and, as a result, she could bring alive one of the most famous cult Star Wars characters on a par with Darth Maul, even with her own spin off eventually perhaps? The franchise needs more female heroes... and villains.
Actress | Wakefield
Pippa Bennett-Warner was born on July 23, 1988 in Banbury, England. She is an actress, known for Wakefield (2016).
Daughter or neice of Lando

Highly under-racted actor who is well overdue for Star Wars action. - He could maybe even play a younger Han Solo?

Jennifer Shrader ...
Suitable to play a tough Princess or young Jedi Knight apprentice. Daughter of Solo or Skywalker even? She even looks like she could be the offspring of Han Solo and Leia.

Laid back action hero to save the Jedi from the Sith. Just like Han Solo, perhaps a bit of a gambler too?...
19. William Fichtner
Actor | Crash
A small-town guy with a big heart, William Fichtner has been captivating the hearts of Western New Yorkers for decades. Bill was born in 1956 on Long Island, New York, to Patricia A. (Steitz) and William E. Fichtner. He is of German, Irish, and English descent.

Terrence Howard was born in Chicago, Illinois, to Anita Jeanine Williams (née Hawkins) and Tyrone Howard. He was raised in Cleveland, Ohio. His love for acting came naturally, through summers spent with his great-grandmother, New York stage actress Minnie Gentry. He later began his acting career ...
Already part of the Lucasfilm family in Red Tails, I think Terrence has plenty of potential to be a Star Wars hero, perhaps a loveable rogue like Lando... Jedi trainer, or even as an outright baddie? In my opinion highly under-rated.
21. Kevin Spacey

Another highly under-rated actor, it's high time Hari made it really big in Hollywood... starting with Star Wars as a Rebel Alliance Commander. (He currently plays Michael Spence in Holby City, BBC TV)
23. Eva Green
Actress | Casino Royale
French actress and model Eva Gaëlle Green was born on July 6, 1980, in Paris, France. Her father, Walter Green, is a dentist who appeared in the 1966 film Au Hasard Balthazar (1966). Her mother, Marlène Jobert, is an actress turned children's book writer. Eva's mother was born in Algeria, of French...
Eva could bring her beauty and sophistication to the Star Wars saga, either on the good side, or the bad. I could imagine her just as good as a power crazy Imperial Officer, as well as a Queen or Princess.
24. Craig Parker
Craig Parker was born on November 12th 1970 in Suva, Fiji and now lives in New Zealand. He is best know for his part as Haldir the Elf in The Lord of the Rings trilogy, although he had a part in the 1993 film of Stephen King's "Tommyknockers".

Ever the beauty, but she proved she was no spring chicken in Avengers Assemble, so she could even be very suitable as the next all action Aayla Secura perhaps, or as a princess?

Kevin's early training as an actor came from The Manning Street. ...
He has to be included, not just because he is a brilliant, very talented all round actor, but also because he can play good or evil (in this case most suitable to play a Sith). Also because he can apparently be connected to everyone in Hollywood - or probably in this case, the Star Wars Universe! A possible contender for a younger General Tarkin character with those high cheek bones.
47. Rachel McAdams
