The original Obi Wan


Did you know that Lucas originally wanted Charleston Heston to play Kenobi?He turned down the offer though making lucas pick Guiness.Ether way both great actors.

All I have to say is I'm glad it turned out the way it did...if Heston had been OB1 and Tom Selleck has played Indiana Jones...no...I don't even what to think about it.

True, it worked out for some movie magic. Heston is also 9 years younger than the late Alec Guiness, UBH, have you watched the Indiana Jones trilogy?

I heard that Robert Redford and Tom Selleck were both considered for the role as Han Solo.

Re: ......


I thought that role of Obi-Wan was to originally to be played by a Chineese actor and Han Solo was going to be Christopher Walkin(yikes!)

Don't get me wrong, Walken is a great actor, but not for that part. IMHO OC. smile

Re: ......


Surely the point though is the film extends beyond the actors who played the characters. Whilst certainly it is always debateable as to the quality of the actors, particularly in Episode one and it is easy to say that they chose the right actors, surely this is simply down to the actors we hav becomes accustomed to and grown to believe i right. If we had been brought up with an absolutely different cast and still thought it was a great saga then would it matter?
