All right, kids. Let’s get back to the blasphemy portion of the Monday Morning Blasphemous Poll.
A few months ago—roughly—I asked you who should play Han Solo in a remake of Star Wars. You voted: Nathan Fillion.
Then I asked who should direct said remake of Star Wars. Your response: Guillermo del Toro.
So I figured . . . might as well cast our other two leads.
The Skywalker Siblings!
Now, I’m putting these polls together in the same post so that you can vote one of two ways: pick two actors based on how well they look together, or pick two actors based solely on their individual merit. Of course, individual merit sounds like the better way to go, but some of you may be concerned with the fact that these two actors are supposed to be twins, and boy, did I have some problems with age discrepancies while making these lists. Between the youngest guy and the oldest girl, there’s almost a ten year age gap. Not to mention, that Nathan Fillion is 40, and ideally, it would be awesome if he didn’t look like a child molester while macking on Princess Leia . . . but also keeping in mind that Luke himself probably shouldn’t be pushing 40, lest he look even more pathetic than he already does, angsting away on Uncle Owen’s farm, whining about someday being a real pilot and probably writing bad poetry about the two suns orbiting Tatooine.
So you can keep all that in mind as you vote, attempting for some consistency in your remake, or you can just pick whatever actor you like best for the role and consistency be damned. That’s what the fucking makeup department’s for.
Honestly, either way is fine with me.
As always, you have one week to vote. Results up next Monday!
