I think the last one is Hagrid.  The villian will be entirely CGI.   ;)

Right. The villain* will be the living personification of the Dark Side itself. I think that would be a way they could totally take another big steaming dump on the whole force concept.

I just hope we get a midiclorian count on whoever the new bad guy is... ;)

Gossling's people have already said it's not true.

Thank God. Stick with the original playbook and go with lesser known actors.

I still love the idea of John Noble as the villain though.

Lucas threw that playbook out with Sam Jackson, Liam Neeson, Ewan McGreggor, and Natalie Portman.

I'm with you though, I found all that distracting... hard to look at the guy from Pulp Fiction as this new Jedi Master.

I have no problem with the Hammer Horror alum. Those guys are pure gold in anything they do.

I don't mind a few familiar faces sprinkled in here and there, but for the younger leads, go with fresh ones. That's all I'm saying.

And please, I'd rather see quality actors that are homely then a bunch of beautiful robots who cannot emote their way out of a wet paper bag.

And Alec Guinness.

That was never a problem for me, since he was Obi-Wan before I was born.  But, yeah, he was big.

Some recent rumors are suggesting that both Ian McDiarmid and Ewan McGregor could be returning to their respective roles in Episode VII, likely as force ghosts.  Grain of salt and all that...

Yeah, I'm sure there will be plenty of rumors over the next few weeks - Liam Neeson Force-Ghost, Hayden Christiansen Force-ghost, Sam Jackson, etc.  I'm expecting anyone who has ever had anything to do with the past six films get rumors going by the end of the year...
