Mark Hamill

You heard us right, Luke Skywalker himself! It's widely known that Hamill has had his share of ups and downs since he withdrew from the spotlight in 1984, but he's due for a comeback. The star hasn't completely been off geek radar (he voiced The Joker on Batman the Animated Series, for instance) but has largely been AWOL for the past several decades. JJ Abrams, however, always has the utmost respect for his source material and for the fans, and so he will undoubtedly throw in casting callbacks to the original just like he included Leonard Nimoy into his recent Star Trek reboot. Even if it's just in a fleeting scene, we'd flip to see Hamill wield The Force yet again!
