Ethan Hawke has revealed that he wants to be in a Star Wars movie and is willing to play all kinds of parts to do so.
Thanks to the longevity of Star Wars, movie-lovers across the generations have a huge love for the franchise, with many dreaming that they might one day get to be a part of the action.
One of these people is actor Ethan Hawke, a huge Star Wars fan who would love nothing more than to one day appear in the films. Speaking on Conan, the actor said: “I’ve never been in one, no, and the truth is, it’s okay, because there weren’t very many of them, but now there’s a lot of them and I still haven’t been in them. I would definitely play a Wookiee. I would do that so well.
“I’ve said it on national TV over and over again. I will audition, I’ll play Wookiees, I’ll play Jedis, I’ll play bad guys. The last one was so good, I loved the Han Solo one, I just loved it. And you see it and there’s Woody Harrelson. He’s in Planet of the Apes, he’s in Star Wars. He’s got like every job.
“I think, to myself, when I go see [Solo: A Star Wars Story], I’m too old to play Han now, I’m gonna enjoy watching this movie. Oh, Han’s got a buddy: Woody Harrelson. I don’t get to go on? Woody Harrelson is one of my favorite actors of all time, bar none. But I’m saying we’re the same kind of age, can’t I get an audition?”
Well, there you go, Lucasfilm. Ethan Hawke is ready to go and willing to audition for whatever you have! Perhaps we’ll see the actor in a Star Wars film in the not too distant future. Is there a type of Star Wars character you think Hawke would be suited for?
