6 Actors Who Were Almost Cast in Star Wars

Colin Hanks (Anakin Skywalker)

Just like Leonardo DiCaprio and Christian Bale, Colin Hanks, son of Tom Hanks, was also considered for the role of Anakin Skywalker. But he also lost the role to Hayden Christensen like the other two. Christensen’s chemistry with Natalie Portman (Queen Amidala) was really great and this is said to be the main reason why Colin Hanks lost his chance to play the role of Anakin Skywalker.

Tupac Shakur (Mace Windu)

The role of Mace Windu perfectly suits Samuel L. Jackson and the star wars fans can’t imagine anyone else in that role. But before the role went into the hands Samuel L. Jackson, several other actors were actually auditioned by George Lucas. The legendary rapper Tupac Shakur is said to have auditioned for Lucas in 1996 (before filming Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace). But unfortunately he lost his life in a drive-by shooting (1996) and his death still remains as an unsolved mystery.
