Star Wars is one of the greatest film franchises of all time. The action, the drama, the insane concept of Jedi Knights, and crazy plot twists! (*cough* "I am your father") Also, Star Wars is a cinematic giant, since Episode IV is one of the highest grossing movies ever (after the gross amount is adjusted for inflation). Just to sum it up, Star Wars is the best!

However, there is one particular aspect of Star Wars that is frowned upon by Star Wars fans and general moviegoers alike:

Hayden Christensen as Anakin Skywalker

Hayden Christensen had a decent demeanor for his performance in Revenge of the Sith. However, his acting performance in Episodes II and III was... poor. Whether he simply didn't fit the role, or his acting is just not good, Christensen didn't bring the best Anakin Skywalker that there could be. Because of this, I have come up with a recast for the role of Anakin Skywalker. After all, it's Moviepilot! Fan casting/recasting is completely great here!

Keeping in mind the demeanor, emotions, and suitability for the role of Anakin Skywalker, here is my recast for him:

Andrew Garfield

Mainly for his amazing performance as Spider-Man (which I'm so disappointed that he isn't Spider-Man anymore), Andrew Garfield appears to me to be the best candidate for Anakin Skywalker. Think about it: Garfield can do a great dark face, he is great at portraying emotions in front of a movie camera, and based on Anakin Skywalker's personality (tries to act professional but has his childish moments), Garfield already looks the age and can produce the emotions needed for the character (referring back to his general acting performance).

So what do you think? Would Andrew Garfield make a great Anakin Skywalker, or should he just stick to secretly shooting webs in his spare time? Let me know in the comments section below, as well as the poll below!


Would Andrew Garfield make a good Anakin Skywalker?
