FAN CAST: Star Wars: The Force Unleashed by JoshW

FAN CAST: <font color= blue>Star Wars: <I>The Force Unleashed</I></font> by JoshW

Here are my choices for who I’d like to see star in a movie adaptation of the video game, Star Wars: The Force Unleashed! Included are all of the main characters that appeared in the game as well as the reasons why I think the actors I’ve chosen are right for the parts…

JoshW: In my opinion, this game is probably the best Star Wars one yet. With a brilliant set of characters and a story that perfectly bridges some of the gap between Episode III and IV, I think it would make an even more epic movie! I’ve included the reasons behind my casting choices as I know that those of you who haven’t played the game may not be familiar with some of these characters as well as all of the spoiler free information you need to know about them and the plot of the game! Enjoy the cast!

THE PLOT

The Star Wars saga continues in Star Wars: The Force Unleashed, a videogame developed by LucasArts, starring Darth Vader's "Secret Apprentice" and unveils many new revelations about the Star Wars galaxy. The expansive story, created under direction from George Lucas, is set during the largely unexplored era between Star Wars: Episode III: Revenge of the Sith and Star Wars: Episode IV: A New Hope. In it, players assist the iconic villain in his quest to rid the universe of Jedi - and face decisions that could change the course of their destiny.

THE CHARACTERS

Starkiller is the main character in Star Wars: The Force Unleashed. He is Darth Vader’s secret apprentice, and has a love interest in Juno Eclipse. His birth name is Galen Marek.

I know this may seem like a lazy casting choice as Witwer lent both his voice and likeness to the game but his “performance” in that was brilliant and I’d love to see him play the live action version of the character! Although his role in Smallville wasn’t great, just look back at his previous performances in a show like Dexter and you’ll see what a brilliant actor he actually is.

Father of Darth Vader's secret apprentice, Marek was a Jedi in hiding on the wookie planet Kashyyyk after the Clone Wars.

Although this would only be a minor part I think it needs a quality actor and Roth is one of the best out there. He looks the part and has the right qualities as an actor to pull off the personality of a character like this.

During an extermination mission on Kashyyyk, Vader encounters a gifted force user named Galen Marek (Starkiller) and decides to kidnap the young child and raise him as his apprentice.

What is there to say? This man’s voice IS Darth Vader and although you could have an impersonator as the game did, I’d be much happier having Jones back.

PROXY was given to Starkiller as a companion, and to assist Darth Vader's secret apprentice on his missions. He houses hologram technology that allows him to make himself look like almost anyone.

His voice work in games like the Uncharted series is probably the best out there so I’d really like to hear him lend his voice to this character simply because I think he’d do a fantastic and unique job.

After exceeding in her training, Darth Vader promoted her to pilot the Rogue Shadow, a secret ship used to transport Vader's secret apprentice.

A beautiful and talented actress who I would love to see play Ms. Marvel, I think she’d be really well suited to this role. Strahovski looks the part and her great performance in Chuck each week shows that she’s capable of action, and emotion.

Mass Effect 2

A hardboiled Jedi General of the Clone Wars that survived Order 66 and who Darth Vader sends his secret apprentice to kill. Starkiller seeks out Kota's help in establishing an Alliance against the Empire.

He’s a great actor who would be perfect for this role in my opinion. I think he looks right for the part and his brilliant performances in shows like 24 has shown what a diverse actor he is, capable of playing many types of role.

Leia Organa Solo is the daughter of Padme Amidala and Anakin Skywalker and sister to Luke Skywalker. She was raised on the planet of Alderaan as the daughter of Bail Organa and played a key role in ridding the galaxy of the empire.

Although Leia’s role in the game is small, I think that Blunt would be a great choice to play a slightly younger version of the character. She does look a little like the original actress, Carrie Fisher and is a great enough actress to give her own great take on the character.

Starkiller has been raised from a child with the goal of destroying Palpatine for Vader, or so starkiller has been led to believe...

As with James Earl Jones, I think I would be best to bring back the actor who has always brilliantly portrayed Palpatine in the Star Wars movies.

A former Jedi knight driven mad, Kazdan escaped Order 66 and hid on the scrap planet Raxus Prime. He has a great level of control over his Force powers and is capable of giving life to robotic creations.

I know it may seem like a cliché casting Serkis in a role like this but his voice and movement work in the LOTR movies and games like Heavenly Sword just make me think that there’s no one else out there who’s better suited to this role!

One of the few Jedi Masters to survive the Great Jedi Purge, Shaak Ti survived multiple encounters with General Grievous during the Clone Wars. She eventually comes into contact with the Vader's Secret Apprentice during the events of The Force Unleashed.

Although Shaak Ti wouldn’t necessary have to be in the movie I think she’s a good fit and looks the part. She proved that she can handle action well in the Kill Bill movies and I think it would be good to have an established actress like Thurman playing this character.

Maris Brood was a young Zabrak Jedi who survived Order 66 and took up hiding on Felucia. She later turned to the dark side after Starkiller killed her master.

One of the best, but highly underrated, actresses about I think she’d be perfect for this part. She’s great at playing both the nice and nasty side of a character and this would be perfect for the change her character undergoes later in the story.

Captain Ozzik Sturn was an Imperial officer, who was transferred to Kashyyyk to fit his extracurricular activities with hunting. There he became a Wookiee hunter and has a museum of all the animals he's killed.

A fantastic actor, I’d really like to see Tudyk tackle a villainous role like this. Although he’s played a lot of comedic characters in the past, his recent role in V has shown that he can handle a darker character. I also think he happens to look the part.
