Sylvester Stallone turned down for role as Han Solo (http://movies.yahoo.com/feature/movie-talk-sly-solo_stallone-admits-he-was-considered-for-star-wars.html)

So, yeah... I logged onto Yahoo this morning and this story came up in my entertainment news box. I had no clue that he had auditioned for the part of Han Solo. It seems like Walken, King, Russell and a couple others have famously been named as candidates for the role, but I never heard about Stallone.

Could you just imagine...?

:ermm:

Is the Chris Walken thing for real? I thought they just did that on SNL as a joke.

In ROJ, the lines would've been:
"If I can change [Threepio translates into Huttese]...
You's can change [more translation]...
We all can change!" [Jabba's cohort cheers]

In ANH:
"Who is this? What is your operating number?"
"I'm your worst nightmare."

In ESB, on Cloud City, when Leia enters in her Bespin gown:
Leia: "You don't know about the three shells?"

That... that is beautiful.

How about in ESB after the Imperials have entered the base and Han hides in that snow drift (you can't see him), opens his eyes and then slits that troopers throat.

I read an article that stated that not only was Michael McDonald briefly considered for the role of Luke Skywalker, but that the "big reveal" of Return of the Jedi originally took place about halfway through the first Star Wars!

The only footage that was ever shot was Luke rescuing the princess and removing his helmet to sing, "You don't know me, but I'm your broooooooother."

Wasn't Kurt Russell up for Luke or Han?
