Now, this is pure speculation, but if you go to the Set Diaries on the starwars.com in the Hyperspace section and read the article about the King of Casting, towards the bottom the casting director comments on the new additions to the cast and her thoughts on them. Rohan Nichol's paragraph talks about how they wanted someone to look like a character from the original trilogy. Could his character possibly be Captain Antillies? Think about it, who from the original trilogy would be infamous enough for fans to recognize that would be interesting to expand on his background that fans would like to hear but Wedge Antillies. And it would tie up the rumors of how Captain Antillies could be related to Wedge. Thoughts?
