There has been plenty of “casting” news surrounding the upcoming Star Wars VII, with Ryan Gosling and Zac Efron being the most recent names for Ben Skywalker, so it makes sense that people are asking other actors what their hopes for the Star Wars sequel are.
In an interview with IGN, Karl Urban was asked if he would attempt to leverage his working relationship with J.J. Abrams into a role in the new Star Wars. Somewhat surprisingly, Urban replied with an immediate “No, absolutely not.”
When pressed further, Urban admits that he is a huge Star Wars fan. So huge in fact that he feels it would be wrong for the Star Trek and Star Wars worlds to intermingle.
“I, as an audience member, wouldn’t want to see an actor from Star Trek in Star Wars. I just wouldn’t. When I go into a Star Wars movie I want to be completely enveloped. I don’t want to be taken out of the picture by going ‘Oh my God, there’s Scotty, what’s he doing in Star Wars?'”
Well put Mr. Urban. You know who agrees with Karl Urban on this?
