With circulating rumors about Fett and Kenobi movies in the work from LF, I got thinking about casting for Old Ben...and Ben Affleck, imo, would be a prime choice.

Say what you will about BvS, his performance was still impressive. He was a grieving man, struggling with his isolation and loneliness just like Obi. He was weary of the state of the world around him and fought back with pent up anger.

Imagine that performance in a small scale story on Tatooine. He could pull off the grizzled, angry Obi-Wan who lays waste to his enemies, while also having that intense brooding and brokenness.

No, thank you.

There is already a definitive actor for Obi-Wan's role, and his name is Ewan McGregor.

But let's get real here for one minute, literaly every Star Wars movie made by Disney was pure crap, so if Disney makes a Kenobi or Fett related movies, then those would of course be crap as well.

Let's not overthink this. Just get Ewan McGregor back.

Ben Affleck should play everyone. He should play Ben Affleck.

As Kevin Smith said during one of the Evening with Kevin Smith Specials:

"I would cast Ben Affleck to play the Shark from Jaws"

If Disney wants to continue a string of disappointing movies/flops, then Ben as Ben would be a good choice.

Ewan might be a little bit too young.

There are many tricks to make him look older, rememmber after all Hollywood have some very good "Gods" of make up.

So the age is not an issue here.

So much this.

But let's get real here for one minute, literaly every Star Wars movie made by Disney was pure crap, so if Disney makes a Kenobi or Fett related movies, then those would of course be crap as well.

Sadly, this as well.

Ewan McGregor should play Obi-Wan Kenobi. He can age with the role and he should have a full trilogy of stuff with a few years between films. He said he was interested in staying with the role and he can potentially carry the films.

Amazing every word in that sentence was..... almost correct. Rouge One was pretty phenomenal all in all and hit the Star Wars mark. Still, the movie would have been much better if Kyle Katarn was still part of the story/canon.
