There is a story going around a few movie websites that Bradley Cooper is going to be cast as one of Han and Leia's sons: Bradley Cooper To Play Han Solo's Son?

I'd be okay with it, he can act, and he has just enough arrogance/cockiness that would fit into the role. But I wouldn't put much stock in it, rumors are just that.

I would be cool with it too. He is legit as an actor in all aspects of comedy/action/drama. Is he bordering too old to be Han's son though?

This would make me weary if true... considering that both Jacen Solo and Anakin Solo are dead, it means it's a retcon or they would be following an EU storyline.

Episode 7 will not follow the EU.

if this is true then this pretty much confirms they are just completely getting rid of the entire Post ROTJ EU. In no way does Bradley Cooper fit either Anakin Solo or Jacen Solo. He really is more like Han Solo then either of those two. I also can't see him being a jedi.

Unless of course this just turns out to be the worst casting since Samuel L Jackson as Mace WIndu.

They've all ready said that the new movies will be an original story, not something pulled from the EU.

oh i know that but since it is going to take place 40 years after ROTJ there have been people wondering if it all just takes place after Fate of the Jedi.

It's unlikely they will use anything from the EU.

Maybe names or a couple of small things.

The EU truly is effectively fan fiction now.

Which on one level is a good thing because of how crappy most of the content was, but at the same time, it's pretty well established in the franchise at this stage. Either way, I kinda feel sorry for the Wookieepedia editors who are going to have to sort the mess of rewrites and retcons coming up.
