This Friday Fun issue we'll talk about movies, in fact a Star Wars franchise.

Just imagine, how difficult it was for Mr. Lucas and his crew to find the right actors for the talently scripted characters.

Of course, Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford, Ewan McGregor and others did an excellent job on reprising their roles for the series. But still we wonder, what would happen, if the director could star famous rock stars and how they'd fit.

Here's one of the possible visions on the questioned matter:

You may have your own thoughts as well. So, here below we would like to ask you the following:

If you were George Lucas and could cast any rock'n'roll star for your Star Wars movie, who would you choose as an actor for:

  • Han Solo
  • Luke Skywalker
  • Obi-Wan Kenobi
  • Princess Leia
  • Darth Vader
  • Darth Sidious (Emperor/Palpatine)
  • Chewbacca
  • C3PO

    Leave your answers in the comments below, have fun and may the guitar force be with you.
