    Thumbs up Spike from Buffy to play Young Tarkin?

    Dark Horizons is reporting that someone may be very close to being cast as our favorite gaunt Imperial Officer during his early years. According to the site, James Marsters who plays Spike on TV's "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" is rumored for the role. I think he's an excellent choice, as he has that skull sort of face. I do think he looks very Tarkinesque.

    That's a very good match. It is better than Sir Alec Guiness and Ewen McGreggor.

    I am glad they are putting Tarkin in Episode 3. I don't think it is very clear how important he is in ANH.

    I agree...Tarkin has a BIG role but yet so little screen time. I am satisfied with this "Spike" being Tarkin...looks similar. Can't wait to see him in EP3!!!!!!!
    One way to out think people is to make them think you think they'll think what you are not really trying to get them to think what you think.

    Sorry I think he's just a little too young! If there is only 15-20 years between EpIII & IV, they need to find an actor in his 50's so that would justify Peter Cushings "age" in ANH be around 65-70!!! They could get away with someone in their 40's also!

    That's what make-up is for. Have you seen how well old age make-up works in movies where it's used. He's got the general facial features. He just needs aged a bit.

    Don't get me wrong, I think it's a great choice, but isn't James about a foot taller than Peter Cushing.
    May the force be with you.

    Definately an excellent choice.
    No matter how I die, even if there is a suicide note; it was murder. Cheers!

    I thought Ricky McC said we would not see OT characters like Tarkin, Han, and Mon Mothma in Ep3...?
