It's hard to imagine any other actors playing the Star Wars characters we've grown to love, but what about the other movies they've made? Do you have any favorite films with the stars of Star Wars?
'Course, this could be a very short list for obvious reasons With the exception of that Han Solo fella, Harrison-something-or-other, none of the actors really have made it big. But here is my list:
Mark Hamill (Luke Skywalker): I did see his stinker Corvette Summer and Time Runner, but he's probably best known for his voice work in animated series like Batman. He does a great Joker.
Carrie Fisher (Princess Leia): One of my favorite films is The 'Burbs, a comedy about surburbia and the strange new family that moves in next door. Carrie plays Tom Hanks' surburban housewife in the film, and she still exudes a shapely sexy MILF-like goodness.
John Ratzenberger (Hoth's Major Derlin): Who? I always watched "Cheers" every week with Cliff Clavin and the gang. Ratzenberger is known now for his voice work in cool films like Toy Story and A Bug's Life.
Christopher Lee (Count Dooku): I've never seen any of Lee's (or Peter Cushing's) horror films, but who could've been a better Saruman the White? The LOTR trilogy is fantastic stuff.
Alec Guinness (Obi-Wan Kenobi): I've seen Bridge on the River Kwai a couple of times. A good show, but it's not one I watch regularly.
Natalie Portman (Padme Amidala): Where the Heart Is is a watchable film. Well worth the time to see this beautiful actress again (along with co-star Ashley Judd).
Ewan MacGregor (Obi-Wan Kenobi): Moulin Rouge was such an offbeat film. I didn't want to watch it, but yet I could not look away. It was also worth seeing Kylie Minogue as the Green Fairy.
Liam Neeson (Qui-Gon Jinn): I've never seen Schindler's List... but The Haunting was passable if only for the lovely Catherine Zeta Jones. Gangs of New York was very interesting, although Neeson has only a small role.
Ian McDiarmid (Palpatine): Played a small role in Tim Burton's Sleepy Hollow. Hated it at first, but this film has grown on me over the years.
Keira Knightley (Sabe): "Ye best be believin' in ghost stories, Miss Turner, ye be in one." Pirates of the Caribbean, 'nuff said.
Harrison Ford (Han Solo): Had to check IMDb for this unknown.. man what has he done since Star Wars?! Let's see... Indiana Jones & Blade Runner. Also good in Presumed Innocent, The Fugitive (Tommy Lee steals the film), and the supernatural thriller What Lies Beneath.
