Star Wars Episode 7 audition desired by Witwer

In recent post we spoke about the familiar characters set for a return in JJ Abrams’ Star Wars Episode 7 cast, and it seems that the likes of Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher are set to reprise their roles, so what new characters can we expect?

While fans question whether the next film will involve characters from the expanded universe Disney are giving us the impression there is no guarantee this will be the case. Therefore, a fresh story and new characters may not keep in line with what fans are led to believe.

It is worth considering what new faces will be involved in the next film and Digital Spy highlight Sam Witwer’s hopes of being called up for an opportunity to take up a role in the next film. Witwer, known for his part in the US remake of Being Human has some Star Wars related experience to his name, providing the voice of Darth Maul in The Clone Wars, and voicing Sith Lord apprentice Galen Marek (aka Starkiller) in various Star Wars video games.

Being a lifelong fan of the franchise, Witwer states how he would jump at the chance to audition for the new movie highlighting his love for everything Star Wars including the books and videogames. While fans of the Starkiller would love to see this introduced into the next film, it’s easy to see why a vast majority of actors would relish a part in Episode 7 and we recently mentioned the children of both Princess Leia and Han Solo if they continue to introduce twins Jaina and Jacen.

We looked at actors and actresses that could play the roles of the boy and the girl children in the upcoming movie and who is likely to do the part justice. According to reports the timeframe is said to be thirty years after Return of the Jedi, so some suggestions could be too old to play the youngsters.

When it comes to possible Jaina Solo candidates, Jennifer Lawrence, Chloë Grace Moretz, Elizabeth Olsen, Shailene Woodley and Ellen Page are mentioned. While Jacen Solo considerations have amounted in names like Zac Efron, Dane DeHaan, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Sam Claflin. Therefore, who do you feel would play these parts, not only having a resemblance to each other but also a likeness to their on-screen parents?
