Tarkin

Anyone got a picture of him? There was one over at theforce.net, but got there too late and Lucasfilm made them take it down. If we can't post that, know who's playing him? Is it the guy from Buffy? That was a rumor long ago, but he had the same bony face and I could see him as the part given he could mimick Cushing's voice somewhat like McGregor does Guiness.

Lucasfilm is being pretty anal about this epi.III stuff aren't they? XD They desperately want people to cough up $20 to subscribe to hyperspace and see the content there rather than on some *gasp* free site.

That's pretty cool. Hope it's the real deal Now you said extra. Will Tarkin (not giving away any story) have a part in this at all or will he just be standing there? (if anyone knows this)

Yes, that Hyperspace thing is a load of crap and the Insider's pictures, the few they have, are thumbnails and you can't see jack. There's this one of Bail in a new outfit (similar to the Imperial Officer) that'd I wouldn't mind seeing a bigger picture of.

It doesn't look anything like him imo. :/

I concur. The new guy's nose is too crooked and big, his cheek is folded too inward, his lower lip is kinda big. I especially don't like the cheekbones, did he just pop a sour Skittles in his mouth or something?

I think he looks older in the new picture than in Ep IV.


Just because people think what I say don't make sense, doesn't mean I don't like popsicles.

The picture Rhett posted is better for comparison, but Skinkie brings up a good point. I'm not sure if he looks older, but he don't look 20 years younger: I can tell you that much. The red bags under the eyes are a tad too much I guess. I still like it. I am so hyped for this movie ever since I got a glimpse of the few photos floating about (Anakin and Obi , the old time lightup buttons, Bail's outfit, and now this.... It's wonderful )

I have a feeling that isn't real though.... The fact there is no background to it and his hand is up to his chin like that tips me off its just a Photoshop veteran using his magic. In ANH, Tarkin's in that pose as he awaits the Deathstar to fire on Yavin. I could be wrong, but it's just a tad weird he's posed and you can't see the set behind him.

I think it would have been in one of the set diaries if it was real.


May the Force be with you...

Bingo. Cheat, I ain't saying you made it and are passing it off as your own, not at all, but just saying that your source is not reliable or they got it from an unreliable source. I just recall theforce.net having 2 pictures that if clicked said Lucasfilm made them take it off. I was too late

The one up there is one the pictures theforce.net had up. Here are both of them. They're makeup test shots. That's why there is nothing in the background.

Picture One

Picture Two
