19 Actors Nearly Cast In Star Wars


Actors in Star Wars fit in perfectly, yet there is some interesting information related to these roles. As it is, George Lucas considered many distinctive actors. What’s more, many auditioned for the roles. Here’s a list of different well known on-screen characters who lost a chance to show up in Star Wars.

1. Leonardo DiCaprio as Anakin Skywalker

DiCaprio caught up with George Lucas about playing Anakin Skywalker in the second and third Star Wars prequels. However, he refused the role since he felt he wasn’t ready for attention he would get after that.


2. Michael Jackson as Jar Binks

The character of Jar Binks is awful, yet it could’ve been more dreadful. Lucas stated that Jackson had been keen on playing the role of Jar Jar. However, since Lucas wanted to make a completely PC produced character, so Best was cast in the part.


3. Christian Bale as Anakin Skywalker

Christian Bale had worked with George Lucas’ dear companion, Steven Spielberg, as the lead in Empire of the Sun. H won a lot of praise for his execution as the merrily sociopathic representative Patrick Bateman in 2000’s American Psycho. He neither affirmed nor denied his inclusion in Star and at last, the part went to Hayden Christensen.


4. Jodie Foster as Leia Organa

Carrie Fisher had stated that the part of Princess Leia nearly went to Jodie Foster. She would’ve been approximately14 years of age at that point of time. Since she Foster was very young for the role, it went to Fisher, who was, at that point, 20 years old.
