This Huge A-Lister Is DESPERATE To Join The Star Wars Universe
Can you guess the Hollywood star who wants to get up close and personal with the Porgs?
You might remember whispers last year that Christian Bale was in talks to join the Han Solo spin-off movie, in the role that eventually went to Woody Harrelson. Well according to the man himself, those talks did indeed take place, and while it didn’t work out this time, he’s still very keen to play a role in the galaxy far, far away.
“Yes, [it was] very tempting,” said Bale, when asked about the Han Solo project. “I not only love the films going back to my childhood but also have a very long relationship with Kathleen Kennedy and Frank Marshall because they did Empire of the Sun from many years back. There was discussion. I hope there will be future discussions.”
“I'm a huge fan, Star Wars really interests me,” continued the star. “I've still got the Millennium Falcon, I've got the AT-AT. My daughter, her first love was Darth Vader. She absolutely adored Darth Maul... stood near him at Disneyland and he growled and he's got those teeth and he stayed in character – really wonderful performance – and she was teeny and I thought, 'This is gonna scare the crap out of her, this is such a bad idea'. And then she stopped and she said, 'Daddy, I'm in love'."
If we were involved in LucasFilm, we’d be on the phone to Bale quick snap. We’re struggling to imagine a better fit for the franchise’s next Big Bad…
