Sebastian Stan Luke Skywalker, who starred in Pam & Tommy, is still avoiding inquiries about playing Luke Skywalker in the future. He and Mark Hamill, it appears, maintain in touch.
Even years after fans first pointed out his amazing likeness to Mark Hamill, Sebastian Stan of Pam & Tommy is still avoiding queries about one day becoming Luke Skywalker. Stan is most recognised for his role in the Marvel Cinematic Universe as Bucky Barnes/Winter Soldier.
He spent the first few months of 2022 conducting press for three films that were released this year: spy thrillers The 355, the romantic thriller Fresh, and, most recently, the Hulu series Pam & Tommy, in which Stan plays Tommy Lee of Mötley Crüe.
Sebastian Stan Luke Skywalker What are his various endeavors?
Stan is frequently fan-cast as Luke Skywalker in between his different attempts, driven by several fan edits pointing out his and Hamill’s physical — or at least facial — similarities. Since then, Hamill and Stan have pursued the concept. They keep in touch and have referred to each other as “father” and “son” in interviews and social media posts on several occasions. Despite the jokes, neither has any influence over Star Wars casting, and neither Disney nor Lucasfilm have announced any Luke Skywalker-related projects in the near future.
Stan, on the other hand, has repeatedly stated his willingness to play the fabled Jedi if the occasion arises. He spoke with Esquire recently about Pam & Tommy, as well as his reactions to news and memes about himself. When the subject about Luke Skywalker came up again, Stan responded:
Without an official statement from Disney, Stan is unlikely to play Skywalker for a long time, if at all, much to the joy of Star Wars purists who despise anyone other than Mark Hamill in the role. While de-aging technology allowed Hamill to return as a younger Skywalker in The Mandalorian, the method can only go so far without seeming off-putting and unrealistic.
If Disney and Lucasfilm wish to create a new Skywalker plot, maybe set after Return of the Jedi, they’ll need to find a younger actor, much like Alden Ehrenreich did when Harrison Ford took over as Han Solo.
Stan’s acting skills may be enough to qualify him for the role of Luke Skywalker. He’s a versatile actor recognised for his desire to morph into whatever role he’s portraying, as well as his ability to portray vastly distinct personas.
Whether it’s bulking up for Bucky Barnes or slimming down for Tommy Lee, Hamill’s commitment to character honesty is probably why he’s never spoken out against Stan. In fact, they appear to get along swimmingly. If the idea makes it to Stan’s desk, there’s a good possibility Hamill will grant his OK.
