Fantasy Drafting: Boba Fett Spin-Off Casting!!
By Jake Buchanan
Hello and Welcome Back Everyone,
With the first of many Star Wars Stand Alone films coming out alongside the new trilogy taking place one is set to be the focus of Bounty Hunters!?! Now there has been talk about numerous actress being up for certain roles in the film, BUT no one is talking about who should play Boba Fett! Granted they can throw anyone with somewhat of a rugged accent into the role of Fett, but who should play the character? Now the candidates down below are who we at East Coast Movie Guys think should portray the legendary bounty hunter of a galaxy far, far away, and with that being said let’s get into some fantasy drafting!
Round One Draft pick… Nick E. Tarabay! Calculating, intense, and merciless are just the tip of the iceberg of which Tarabay can bring to the characters he portrays. Primarily known as Ashur from the Starz original series Spartacus, Tarabay's portrayal of Ashur is a main component of why we believe he should be considered for the role due to how much of a dark hearted scoundrel he was in the series. With the best fact about this potential casting is how Tarabay somewhat resembles Temuera Morrison who played Jango Fett in Star Wars: Attack of the Clones! Overall Tarabay would bring the gritty bounty hunter feel to Bobba Fett in this new age of Star Wars, and can provide more insight into the character than what has been given.
Round Two Draft pick… Liam Hemsworth! This is a very unexpected picked, but the reason is now that The Hunger Games will be coming to an end soon Hemsworth will be able to bring fans of that series to the spinoff. Placing a young and upcoming star as the lead of such a new film in a legendary universe cannot only help bring newer eyes to the spinoffs, but also the entire Star Wars Saga as a whole. Hemsworth has yet to truly break out as a genuine star, but we feel that he has the potential to do so by portraying the legendary universal bounty hunter.
Round Three Draft pick… Tom Hardy! Yes! Hardy is our “dark horse” pick for the role of Bobba Fett in the bounty hunter spinoff, because not only is he the biggest sought out actors in the world right now but also gives performances that are incredible and remember able. Now the chances of Hardy actually getting the role if he auditioned would be a slam dunk, BUT he’s currently too busy with multiple other projects including resurrecting the “Mad Max” movie franchise. Without a doubt if Tom Hardy was casted as the new Bobba Fett in the series we at East Coast Movie Guys honestly believe every single generational, causal, and diehard fans of Star Wars would be overjoyed and excited to see what this new franchise of spinoffs has to offer.
Other than that I would like to say thanks for taking time out of your day to give this a read, and what do you think about the potential names for Bobba Fett in the first “new age” Star Wars spinoff!?!
