Seems like folks in Hollywood are chomping at the bit to get in on the action for Star Wars Epiosde VII. From Robert Pattinson to Corey Feldman, everyone wants to become part of the biggest sci-fi saga in film history. Movieweb.com recently caught up with Feldman and here's what he had to say on the subject:
When asked if there was a particular role he'd like to take on, he said he is lobbying for a role as Han Solo's son, due to his resemblance to actor Harrison Ford.
"I think that is a great idea. No one knows what they have in mind yet, or what they have in store for us...But what I would like to see in the development of those next three movies is that they bring back all of the original characters, as they are still alive. And you can make them the older generation. Then, whether its their kids, or a bunch of new young soldiers, or Jedis, or warriors...Whatever it is, I would certainly like to be a part of that new young brigade that they are going to bring forward.
I think Harrison Ford's son is a really great idea, actually. Fans have always said that I would make a great Indiana Jones, a great Young Indiana Jones. We look very similar, we have the same type of bravado. The same character persona with the whole Edgar Frog thing. It is a good fit."
So what do you think about this news? Is Corey crazy off his rocker or completely confident he can pull it off? Either way, nothing is official yet. Hopefully we'll hear an announcement within the next few months from Disney/LFL regarding actors and roles. It definitely is a fun time to be a Star Wars fan!
