Fans really want to see “The Falcon And The Winter Soldier” star Sebastian Stan head to a galaxy far, far away. Fans have been clamouring for the 38-year-old actor to step into the Jedi robes of Luke Skywalker for any future appearances of the character in the “Star Wars” franchise.
In an interview with “Good Morning America”, Stan addressed the dream casting which includes fan art of the actor as the young Skywalker. While there are no current plans for a Luke Skywalker series, Mark Hamill recently made an appearance as the iconic Jedi through the power of CGI in an episode of “The Mandalorian”.
Hamill himself responded to the rumour on Twitter:
This assumes I have any say in casting decisions at Lucasfilm when in fact… I don't. https://t.co/7WNFTlm32H

Hamill previously gave his support to Stan on Twitter in 2018, calling him a “wonderful actor”.
“If Mark Hamill calls me personally to tell me that he feels inclined to share this role with me, then I’ll believe it,” Stan says of the idea of playing Skywalker. “Until then, I won’t believe it.”

Fans have noticed physical similarities between Stan and Hamill for a while. In 2017, Hamill himself commented on it, jokingly calling him “My son Sebastian” on Twitter.
