Suitable actor to play as Grand Admiral Thrawn

I am a huge fan of Timothy Zahn's books, I think they greatly add to the Star Wars universe and at times exceed the epicness that was the original trilogy.

Of course, books of that magnitude could not be easily filmed (unless someone pulls a Peter Jackson and surprises us all) but hypothetically what actor do you see as Grand Admiral Thrawn. I found some pictures of Jeremy Irons (fan made) and thought he might be able to pull it off. What do you think?

P.S: Grand Admiral Thrawn ftw

Well he has to have blue skin.

If they did a movie, the actor has to stick as close to the persona of Thrawn as possible. He's one of the greatest characters in the SWU so don't mess with him.

They will just slap some make up, but yes Thrawn is one of the greatest characters of the SWU and I felt...strangely sad when he died...even as a villain he was one of my favorite characters.

Here is a pic of what Jeremy Irons might looks like as him Pic

Oh, didn't he just play Magneto in the X-men: First Class movie? I agree with you, he does have huge potential to do it!

He's awesome. I loved him in Prometheus and in X-men: First Class. And he's signed on to star in the Assassins Creed Movie.

I agree, I think Michael Fassbender would nail the role of Thrawn

Micheal Fassbender FTW.

But this begs the question who do you get to fill the rest of the cast. Most of them i think are a tad out of their prime to do the movies these days.

So who do you get as:

Luke
Han
Leia
Wedge
Lando
Mon Mothma
Mara Jade
and the list goes on.

My list:

Luke: Logan Leerman[played Percy Jackson]
Han: Chris Pine[ the new kirk. i think he'd knock it out of the park]
Leia: hmm need somebody opposite Logan...need to think on this one.
Wedge: don't have a wedge yet
Lando: need somebody smooth...don't have one yet.
Mon Mothma: Moon bloodgood[very graceful and can be soft spoken, some make up and bam]
Mara Jade: Emma watson[she might actually surprise people. make her look a bit older, or depending on how long it took, she would play an INTERESTING mara jade.]

Mara Jade? TBH I'm thinking Karen Gillan would be great as Mara-Jade.
Leia? get someone who looks like Natalie Portman, Rachel Weisz?
Mon Mothma? Meryl Steep.
Han? John Barrowman.

Not the whole cast, obviously, but some suggestions.
