Star Wars is one of those franchises in the world that act as a double-edged sword for the actors, at one hand they want to be part of this magnum opus that can make an actor from “nobody to somebody” even if the act in the movie is minuscule and at the same time the unfettered love from the fans can take a psychotic height of cyber and real life bullying by the fanatics. Star Wars prequels have destroyed the careers of many actors by spewing negativity on the artists by Star Wars fanatics, this negativity in turn diluted their self-confidence forever, one of such example is Hayden Christensen, who was the main protagonist as Darth Vader’s younger self in the prequels and currently gone dormant in the Hollywood circles. That’s the reason Disney is treading cautiously in selecting it’s cast for the future Star Wars movies. Episode VII was a bull’s eye, it delivered all the requirements that were expected from a Star Wars movie, and in order to keep that momentum going the storyline has to be impeccable, and cast should be flawless for the future movies as well. Star Wars cast team is trying to pick up the best talents suited for both the new and old characters. Episode 8 will have to go through excruciating scrutiny from the fans; it can’t just do “Good”, the need to raise the bar is a necessity now. Here are the names of the actors who could be the part of Episode VIII project, Enjoy!
1. Tom Hardy – Boba Fett(Rumored)
2. Billie Lourd – Lieutenant Connix
