Casting Call - Jacen Solo

The Joint Winners for Jacen Solo are ...

Ryan Merriman

Kevin Zegers
Deep End Of The Ocean, The Pretender (TV)
Air Bud, Titans (TV)


As with the casting of Jaina, the actor who plays Jacen Solo ideally needs to be able to pass for a teenager between 14 and 16. It would also help if he was a good actor who wasn't too famous.


Here are some Jacen Solo facts taken from the Unofficial Star Wars Encyclopedia:

  • Born on Coruscant in 28 NE
  • 5 minutes younger than twin sister Jaina
  • Force is equally strong with him
  • Has the special ability to communicate with animals
  • Attends Luke Skywalker's Jedi Academy on Yavin 4 at the age of 14
  • Creates a lightsaber of emerald green while studying there
  • Later trained with Luke (as Luke began moving the new Jedi Knights back to the pre-Empire style of teaching)
  • Luke also trained Jacen's brother, Anakin, although both brothers had different ideas on what the future of the Jedi should be
  • Jacen believes more in the spiritual aspects of the Force (Jacen and Anakin often fought verbally and with lightsabers, both claiming their intense sessions were simply training)
