This comes from this story here (http://www.theforce.net/episode3/index.shtml#21372) .
Basically, there's now a suggestion that Ghyslain, the kid from 'the video' (which, annoyingly, I can't find a direct link for anymore), could be offered a cameo / role in Episode III.

Any thoughts?

First of all, no, I can tell you he won't be in ep 3. Trust me. He's got as much a chance as jango being in ep 3. Although that kid should be in the movie. I mean, if it's going to suck anyway, might as well go the whole nine yards. Sorry, a little prequel flame there. Couldn't help it.

I dunno B. Maybe If Tyrannus sabered his nuts off or something.
But otherwise, I think we should let him get some more saberstaff practice in! :D

I dont know but I do think that they should put that clip on the DVD as a easter egg :D :D :D

That would be awesome maybe have him in the background at the jedi temple as a bad apdawan flinging around a lightsaber that would be funny.

Forget that. That's so dumb. If they let him in, just 'cause he's a freaking Star Wars fan, then maybe we should all be in the movie. That's only fair.

And I'm not gonna bother asking. :rolleyes:

Well, maybe. But he should just be like in the backround. Maybe a jedi padawan in the temple talkin to someone.

Steve Buscemi auditioned for Reservoir dogs but they didnt want imin it but since Quentin's seen his other work he hired him for Mr. Pink, plus tons of actors dont even "study" to be an actor, i forget who but shes famous at the moment, she doesnt have a degree in acting but...

GO YODA!

I have no clue who this "Star Wars Kid" is, but hey, if he's been humiliated, then sure! As long as he's a traitor and yoda cuts his head off:D(Death scenes are always memorable)

Have you had to suffer mass public humiliation for being too 'geeky'? Probably not ;)

Yeah he's not gonna be in there... I didn't even think what he did was funny... Just a waste of my d/l time ;)

Personally, I think he shouldn't.
It's got nothing to do with his acting ability (he may be a good actor for all we know). If he gets a part, it'll be down to the sympathy vote. Nothing else. Lucasfilm, trying to 'make up' to him for his 'embarassment'. He's already had an around $3000 in gifts and donations. And for what? Falling around like a knob on a video that 'no-one was meant to see'.
It's not like someone circulated a clip of his mother in a porno video with a shot bolted on the end of him and the caption 'look, that's his mother'. Jeez.
I mean good luck to the kid, but deal with it, y'know?

And yes, I'm perfectly aware that this rant stems from one web-cam shot and that Ghyslain has publicly expressed no interest either way at being in EpIII. :p

Look at it this way, if he does get a cameo, no matter how small, people are not going to say "Oh, there's Star Wars Kid, good for him!". They are going to say "Oh, there's that fat kid who made a knob of himself on the internet, HA HA"
Sad but true.

*sound of crickets chirping. Blackout comes to...*

Jeez, where did that come from? :p
I vote no.

:D B.

I dunno why your all getting mad, it'll just be a cameo, like him walking in the background, while a discussion happens.

No WAY should he be in it!

Bad enough with bloody Jar Jar still knocking around the cast list!

The kid DOESNT deserve it.

Not being mean to him in particular, nor is this to do with the footage.

Seriously - many of us here are fan fic writers, modders, reviewers, fan film players - have DONE SOMETHING positive for the continum, and as such have more of a right than any one else, but does GL like us - how many SW mods for various fgames have been threatened with legal action and shut down faster than Yoda on Speed can jump around?

And this kid gets punk'd by a mate, and next thing, GL is bending over backwards to say sorry and make up for something that isnt even his fault.

What an ASS!

Exactly. I know that if it happens, it'll only be a cameo, but it's the principal... Look at the backlash when NSync were rumoured to be in EpII. It didn't bother me personally, but this time it does.

*goes for a lie down*

:p B.

:rolleyes: Whatever. I say we forget the kid and pretend it never happened.

Edit: And if he gets in Ep3, I'm gonna film myself swing a saber around, fuz out the face, upload it somewhere, and whine to heck if I don't get in ep3.

Star Wars films, as many films in general, use hundreds of extra's, many of which have little to no acting experience. And don't kid yourself. All you know about the kid is that he made some little video during some free time, don't presume to know anything about his life. It's people like you that have exploited this poor kid's likeness all over the web to get some ****s and giggles. You wouldn't even recognize the kid in the movie if he was somehow cast as an extra, he'd be off in the background somewhere, like in the Bar scene in AOTC.

Who are you to say he doesn't "deserve" it? Who are ANY of you that say that? You think because you wrote some fanfic or made some little fanfilm that you do more than him? I call bull**** on that. GL doesn't give two craps about the EU so long as it doesn't ruin his timelines. And he certainly would never consider some fanfic as "part of the continuity". Please, he DOES deserve it. He's been publicly humiliated time and time again. So what if he got 3000 donated to him, wow he lives in Canada so that's really only about, what, 2200? He wouldn't even have a speaking role, he'd be a freaking extra. No one would even be able to tell who he was until someone disseminated the movie and took the time to find the exact spot where he is. You people against this are all bitter little fanboys, the kid deserves his 2 minutes of real fame in the movie for the months of humiliation he's endured.

And who are you to say he does deserve it? So he's been humiliated by people! Big deal? I was "pants'd" in freshman year in front of a bunch of girls! Does that mean they should all have sex with me? No! This is no different. So, he's got a movie of himself holding a Star Wars sign. Yeah, I heard Harrison Ford did the same thing.:rolleyes:

Quote you obviously haven't seen any of the videos, nor can grasp the magnitude of the MILLIONS of people that have downloaded these videos JUST to get ****s and giggles over this poor kid. If ANY ordinary, non-celebrity deserves to be in a movie it's him. Being "pants'd" in high school is nowhere near the same thing. Let's see, 20-30 people watching you get pants'd or MILLIONS making fun of you over the net. Hmmmmmm freaking common sense.

I could care less about the kid and his embarrassment. For all I care the little fool can choke slowly on a peice of broccoli.

he did nothing to deserve episode 3. hell I'd rather see Jake Lloyd in episode 3 than this kid.
