Yup, yup
I'm (somewhat) ashamed to admit I really enjoyed Veronica Mars. And not just for Kristen Bell
It was such a well-written whodunnit show.

I don't see how either would portray Jacen or Ben... correction.. I don't see how they would portray current canon Jacen and/or Ben. I'm still having nightmares as Disney works behind sparking curtains.

Replace Episode VII with Episode II and Zac Efron with Leonardo DiCaprio and you could basically copy+paste the the comments from this thread. Fans do NOT 'know it best' necessarily. I don't care who gets casted, as long as he/she delivers a good performance.

Back in Episode II pre-production, it was heavily rumored that Leonardo DiCaprio could play Anakin in Episode II. Fans hated the idea because he was in 'chick flick Titanic, Romeo & Juliet' etc.

To think most of the Leo haters back then wished they kept their mouths shut after getting Hayden.

What's understandable too is people disliking the idea that some 'known' actor will play a part in the movies. While this makes sense, others (on other forums and whatnot) were pointing out that this had already happened in the previous films. Myself, I'd prefer to have lesser known actors, but I can't really expect much. It gets boring though when Brad Pitt, Tom Cruise etc etc. Are the main characters in movies. I don't see their characters anymore, I just see them, trying to be someone else...

Cast Michael Cera as Jacen! He'd make a great angsty teenager falling to the dark side! (heh...)

I'd just like to point out Jacen was in his 30s when Darth Caedus and his dark side revelations came about... tho hilarious that would be.
