Mark Hamill is in talks to return to 'Star Wars', he has revealed.
The actor starred as Luke Skywalker in the original trilogy of 'Star Wars' films, alongside Carrie Fisher's Princess Leia and Harrison Ford's Han Solo.
It's previously been reported that Harrison was set to reprise the role of Han Solo in the movie, which is being directed by JJ Abrams, and that all three stars were interested.
Now Mark has confirmed that the original actors have been approached about the eagerly-anticipated Episode 7.
He told Entertainment Tonight: "They're talking to us. George [Lucas] wanted to know whether we'd be interested.
"He did say that if we didn't want to do it, they wouldn't cast another actor in our parts, they would write us out. I can tell you right away that we haven't signed any contracts."
Discussing his possible role in future Star Wars films, he said: "I'm assuming, because I haven't talked to the writers, that these movies would be about our offspring - like my character would be sort of in the Obi-Wan range, an influential character."
Forget it, everyone; it's Claflin-town. (See "Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides," "Snow White and The Huntsman," "Catching Fire" and his vest.)
When you stop laughing about Crawford, consider that before "Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope," Harrison Ford was best known for playing horndog hotshot Bob Falfa in "American Graffiti."
Give <a href="http://www.cinemablend.com/new/Who-Should-Play-Young-Han-Solo-35567.html">CinemaBlend editor Katey Rich</a> credit for this one: "Hedlund is 29 and could play younger if need be, and has both the good looks and the physicality to convincingly grow up to become Harrison Ford."
DeHaan looks like a young Leonardo DiCaprio IRL and <em>acts</em> like a young Ryan Gosling in "The Place Beyond The Pines." He's sneaky old (27), but why couldn't he grow up to be Harrison Ford, too?
Because Josh Holloway and Nathan Fillion are too old.
Squint and he kind of looks like Harrison Ford. (Also, thanks to the terrible "Smash" season premiere ratings, he'll have some free time on the calendar soon enough.)
Because every list of young actors under 30 needs two Hemsworths.
Here's No. 2.
Eddie Redmayne looks nothing like Harrison Ford, and is so British that he probably bathes in Earl Grey. That said, the "Les Miserables" star is knocking on the door of franchise stardom: he was on the "short lists" for "Guardians of the Galaxy" and "The Amazing Spider-Man 2." Hollywood executives want to give this guy a big shot -- and his work with the Wachowskis in "Jupiter Ascending" could be the launching pad to "Star Wars."
Find and replace on the Redmayne blurb.
Call him a poor man's Redmayne. Levi has been on the cusp of fame for awhile, and -- better yet -- has instant cred with the Comic-Con crowd thanks to his role on "Chuck." Unfortunately, he might be too old to play a guy younger than Harrison Ford in "Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope." (He's already 32.)

From John McClane, Jr. to young Han Solo?
After getting peed on by Nicole Kidman, Efron deserves a break.
Not only could he pass for young Harrison Ford, but he possesses a youthful enthusiasm despite his age (25) that suits the character.
No movie would suffer from having Aaron Taylor-Johnson in the lead. (Except maybe "Savages.")
If Kitsch is busy.
Real talk for one second: Skylar Astin is your next big movie star. He oozes charisma, looks the part of a space smuggler <em>and</em> gives the Han Solo movie a connection to "Pitch Perfect."
If at first you don't succeed ...
