BDW isn't looking so hot on Dancing with the Stars...  Was kinda hoping he'd get in shape from the show for the movie, but, uh, no.  :-\

I mean, the guy's close to 80.  What does anyone really expect?

I don't know what I expected I guess, and maybe I should've taken the time to google his age and figure out why he looked so bad...  Google is useful.

I guess I kind of expected what I'd heard about Fisher, Hammil, and Ford (already basically in shape enough I guess) "getting in shape" for the next film...  Then again I hadn't heard that BDW was even being brought back except one mention here just recently...  DWTS seemed to reinforce to me that maybe he isn't being asked back. 

I met Williams just a year or so ago, didn't seem this bad, but yeah, I don't know what he'd do in SW at this point.

I'm guessing Lando and Han are generals...   They're not running around corridors, they're in meetings... at the helms of ships.  They're your Ackbar for the next films.

Speaking of which, **** I hope Admiral Ackbar shows up in them.  That would make me very happy.

Could Peter Mayhew be reprising his role as Chewbacca?  Check out this Jedi Insider posting, because Peter's clearing his convention appearance calender.



In other news, three more young actors have been added to the rumored cast list for Episode VII on IMDB.  They include:

Ed Speleers - Eragon, A Lonely Place To Die
John Boyega - Attack The Block
Matthew James Thomas - Billy Elliot, About A Boy


No mention of the previously rumored Jesse Plemons, who some thought might be in the running to play the son of Luke Skywalker.  It looks as though that might be the role filled by Ed Speleers.


Speaking of which, **** I hope Admiral Ackbar shows up in them.  That would make me very happy.

I DEFINITELY would like to see Ackbar return.

That kid from Attack the Block would actually be pretty dope, that movie ruled.

No updates about AT-ATs on Tatooine, or Ben catching a little jungle fever in the desert?

This thread is slacking.

Im not liking the Ben thing if true, I think if he had had a child with anyone it would have been Satine. But more to the point, it just changes his character significantly I feel like. He was always the classic warrior monk, live-by-the-code type guy. I also don't like the idea that he would have abandoned his kid, or even been oblivious about her. Plus how does that fit in the whole timeline? Would have had to have been on Tattooine right?

They should have just made her Lando's daughter and made things simpler.
