Star Wars VII cast – and beyond: Episodes 7-9 : a selection of actors and actresses who could play Jedi, Sith or other characters

This is a list of actors who I think would be very suitable to play characters in the new Star Wars trilogy, Epsiodes VII - IX, whether it be as Sith or Jedi or other part such as Imperials etc.

In the new movies I'd like to see the Stormtroopers armed with lightsabres, as per Ralph McQuarrie's original concept drawings. It would also be interesting to finally reveal the mysterious Dark Jedi...

He won an Oscar as Best Supporting Actor for his performance in The Deer Hunter, and has been seen in mostly supporting roles, often portraying psychologically unstable characters...

“ Jedi hero, of course. Has to be, but perhaps a bit of a tearaway... Perhaps one of the Skywalker family carrying Vader's genetics? ” - ant-kay

“ A great choice for a Dark Jedi character who turns from good to evil, with a very high level of lightsabre skills, but maybe an outsider due to his appearances in Thor / Avengers movies? However, now James Spader is taking over as the main villain what better time than to hire Tom? A superb actor at any rate, and a top addition to the Star Wars franchise... I know he would be very popular. ” - ant-kay

“ Proved himself as a great Bond villian - now how about for the next SW trilogy as a Sith Lord, or even an Admiral for the darkside? He would rule the fleet with an iron fist for sure. He has already been mentioned as perfect to the part of Darth Malgus or another Darth character. ” - ant-kay
 
9.
“ Surely destined to play Asajj Ventress or Darth Talon? Her piercing eyes say everything. Her high cheek bones add an extra menacing dimension to her look. She could play a terrifying Sith villain to the greatest effect. I reckon her character would embody all that the darkside represents, and, as a result, she could bring alive one of the most famous cult Star Wars characters on a par with Darth Maul, even with her own spin off eventually perhaps? The franchise needs more female heroes... and villains. ” - ant-kay
