Just as another poll since they are quite popular. If one were to cast an actor to these SW expanded universe characters(they can be actors of any time, 30's 40's70's), who would you pick for the role. Here are the characters and my choice.

Kyle Katarn: Brendan Fraser
Mara Jade: Can't think of anyone
Admiral Thrawn: David Niven
Prince Isolder of "The Courtship of Princess Leia": Leo DiCaprio(I thought Isolder was such a ***** !!! good choice, eh????)

Ooh, I like these threads!

I've actually thought about this one:

Talon Karrde: Bruce Campbell
(On the virtue of Autolycus from Hercules/Xena, and Jack Styles from Jack of all Trades.)

Grand Admiral Thrawn: Jeremy Irons
(I always imagine Thrawn with Scar's voice from Lion King.)

Pellaeon: ???
(Any actor who's played Watson in a Sherlock Holmes movie; necessary since Pellaeon is "Watson" to Thrawn's "Holmes.")

Isolder: (Whoever it was that played Tarzan in the TV series coupla' years back.)

Kyp Durron: Nicholas Brendan
(Buffy the Vampire Slayer's Xander Harris.)

Streen: Christopher Lloyd
(I've always pictured Streen as being like Back to the Future's Doc Brown.)

Mara Jade: Shannon Baksa (sp?)
(Who posed as Mara Jade in the CCG.)

Clone Emperor: James Marsters
(I defy you to read Dark Empire and not recognize the clone as Spike from Buffy.)

------------------
NJO-era only (child-actors before that)

Jacen Solo:

Jaina Solo: Sarah Michelle Gellar
(Buffy herself.)

Anakin Solo:

Zekk: Leo Dicaprio
(Say what you will, but I defy anyone to read Young Jedi Knights and not think of Dicaprio. This would of course only work if Zekk shows up in NJO; Dicaprio's too old now to play a kid.)

---------------------

Kyle Katarn:
Jan Ors:
(What're the names of the actors who played them in the Jedi Knight cutscenes? They're real actors BTW, I remember reading an interview with "Kyle" and I remember that "Jan" had a website [she's a model/actress]).

*mental block*
Somebody name me more characters; I have actors lined up!

How about a red haired Jeri Ryan as Mara Jade?
*rhett starts to imagine that*
*blood rushes out of rhetts head and he collapses on the floor, giggling and drooling*

------------------

I calculated the odds that this would work versus the odds that I was doing something incredibly stupid...and I went ahead anyway.

that evil caesar in gladiator should play as a sith. He sure acts like one!

Mara Jade: A red head Angelina Jolie... http://www.jediknight.net/mboard/biggrin.gif

Thrawn: Christopher Walken... He's just spooky... Or maybe as the Clone Emperor, since he looks kinda deformed!

I dunno about the rest

Please pry it open.

Walken as the Clone Emperor actually....hmmmmm. I like that idea.

Hmmm.

When the clone first awakens, he looks like a 20-something; Walken is too old. He could be the clone once it starts degrading in DE II, though.

Now that I think about it, the way Russell Crowe looked in Gladiator did kinda remind me of Kyle Katarn.

Gladiator's Emperor Commodius, BTW, was played by Joachim Phoenix.

Jeri Ryan, again BTW, doesn't look as she does as 7/9: most of the costume is padding. Jeri Ryan actually has a normal figure. http://www.jediknight.net/mboard/rolleyes.gif

More actors:

Shug Ninx: Cristopher Walken
(With minimal makeup [three-finger gloves, a little facial appliances around the chin], and with his hair, he'd be perfect.)

Salla Zend: Whoever it is that plays Original Cindy on Dark Angel.

Tycho Celchu: Robert Duncan Macneill (sp?)
(Tycho Celchu is Star Trek Voyager's Tom Paris.)

Corran Horn: Russel Crowe
(Just for the Kyle Katarn resemblance; I've always pictured Kyle and Corran as looking alike, I don't know why.)

Seriously, name some more characters for me.

Russell Crowe as Kyle.......I dunno, he doesn't come across as Kyle's character. He's more like a "don't %$^ with me type" character. Cool and calm, whereas Kyle is kinda hyper and tense(to me anyway). Brendan Fraser for Kyle all the way

What about DeNiro or Pacino??? Jeremy Irons for Thrawn, defenitley. Niven is a good guy, let's keep it that way.

Brendan Fraser as Kyle? We're talking about George of the Jungle here.

I think Michael Keaton would be a better Kyle Katarn... (He ruled as Batman!). Although he was Beetlejuice... *sigh*

I still think it should go to the actors from the cutscenes:

Kyle Katarn: Jason Court

Jan Ors: Angela Harry

Or heck, Angela Harry as anyone.
*drool*

Watching "SeVen" actually made me think Brad Bitt might make a good Kyle Katarn... if we aren't using the actors from JK that is.
