Rogue Squadron: a biased (re)casting.

This has been a long time coming, I've been casting and recasting these characters for years, ever since I've read the novels. This is by no means the ultimate version, and I'm sure I'll be changing my mind many times over, but for now, they are my cast, my dream cast. I want this series to be made into a tv show so much, I'd give up any other tv show, no matter how beloved, if this was to happen and happen well.

Rogue Squadron - the elite flight squadron of the Rebel Alliance, founded by Luke Skywalker and Wedge Antilles, commanded by both of them for some time. Fought the battles of Hoth and Endor, took part in every major Star Wars Expanded Universe battle. They define badass and eat the impossible for breakfast.

Wraith Squadron - a little bit of the Dirty Dozen, the misfits and the freaks, no less awesome for that. Quite insane, very deadly, incredibly efficient. The only squadron in history to have a puppet Ewok as one of its pilots.

Jamie Bamber as Wedge Antilles

"As my master told me, there is no try; one can only do or do not. It seems, Wedge, those are your choices."
"No choice at all, Luke. We’re, ah, we were Rogue Squadron. We do."
Luke & Wedge (KT)

January Jones as Iella Wessiri

"I'm usually pretty good about taking orders."
"If occasionally reinterpreting them rather thoroughly."
Wedge & Iella (SoA)

Michael Vartan as Tycho Celchu

"I joined this Rebellion to fight the Empire's tyranny. Just because we have Coruscant doesn't mean it's ended. The new Republic might not be able to strike at Thyferra, but there are rebels around who can. I quit, too."
"It would appear, Captain Celchu, that Rogue Squadron is now your command."
"I don't think so. It's been a long time since I've been a civilian. I'm out as well."
Wedge, Borsk Fey’lya, Tycho (KT)

Sonya Walger as Winter

"Get closer! We have to get that data disk!"
"Ease up! Elscol and Wedge practically have 'em giftwrapped! After all, I promised Darklighter I'd bring this baby back without a scratch!"
[Winter shoots at their own speeder]
"Now it's scratched. Get closer!"
Winter & Tycho (B:T)

Ben Browder as Wes Janson

"Who’s first?"
"His name is Kettch, and he’s an Ewok."
"Oh, yes. Determined to fight. You should hear him say ‘Yub, yub.’ He makes it a battle cry."
"Please tell me you’re kidding."
"Of course I’m kidding."
"I’m going to get you, Janson."
"Yub, yub, Commander."
Wedge & Wes (WS)

Sarah Shahi as Mirax Terrik

"Bomb? Nope, too quick. I want her to linger."
"Remind me never to make you angry."
"You'll never do that, love ... at least not more than once."
Mirax & Corran (BW)

Damian Lewis as Derek 'Hobbie' Klivian

"You know, whenever the name of Derek "Hobbie" Klivian comes up, the words 'It's worse than that' ring in my ears."
Wes (SoA)

Stephanie Jacobsen as Lara Notsil

"Kolot, we’re the same thing, you and I. We’re both lies that eventually became the truth."
Lara (IF)

Mark Wahlberg as Corran Horn

"Either Commander Antilles is losing his touch dressing down recruits, or you’re made of sterner stuff than I might have otherwise imagined."
Tycho (to Corran) (RS)

Selma Blair as Erisi Dlarit

"It's not you. It's not that I'd like nothing better than to be here with you, but…"
"This is just now, Corran. I need this, you need this. It won't change who we are. No obligations. No recriminations. No regrets."
"I hear you, Erisi, and I believe you, but I don't know that I'd be able to leave it in the past. It might not change who we are or what we mean to each other, but I'd bet against it given my past history. As I said, it's not you, it's me. You have to figure I'm an idiot. We've gotten very close a number of times and I keep pulling back."
Corran Horn and Erisi Dlarit

Josh Duhamel as Garik 'Face' Loran

"I want to thank everyone who retrieved pieces of me, everyone who retrieved pieces of my X-wing, and especially those who sorted them out correctly."
Face (IF)

Dichen Lachman as Tyria Sarkin

"Can I walk you to your quarters?"
"Can I help you with your things?"
"What can I do for you?"
"Shoot yourself!"
"I've done that a couple of times. Shooting myself. Accidents. It's not fun."
Ton Phanan and Tyria Sarkin

Garret Dillahunt as Ton Phanan

"A holdout, sir. A laser scalpel. Hard to distinguish from a writing tool without close inspection…and up close, I'm pretty effective with it."
"I'd say so. Did you surrender this weapon to our guards before coming before me?"
"What weapon, sir?"
"The laser scalpel."
"Not a weapon, sir. It's a tool of medicine. I wasn't asked to turn over my bandages, bacta treatments, disinfectant sprays, or tranquilizers either, but I can kill a man with any of them, under the right circumstances."
Ton Phanan and Atton Repness

Jasika Nicole as Shalla Nelprin

"Nelprin is going to be our new trainer in unarmed combat. You make her the best pilot she can be, and she gets to reward you by beating the life out of you. But she's also well versed in Imperial Intelligence doctrine and tactics, which is helpful to us, since Zsinj seems to be fond of employing Intelligence personnel."
Wes Janson on Shalla Nelprin

Enver Gjokaj as Myn Donos

"Did I ever shoot someone in cold blood? Without giving him a chance? Yes. Three times I did that. I didn't much care for it; if I did, I'd probably still be doing it. But better to have dead enemies than dead innocents."
Myn Donos

Genevieve Cortese as Lujayne Forge

"One thing though, I'm not going to have to get along with Bror Jace, am I?"
"Why should you be the first?"
Corran Horn and Lujayne

Leonard Roberts as Kell Tainer

"That’s my guess, Demolition Boy."
"I’m leader here, call me Demolition Boy Sir. Jesmin, how long have you been recording?"
"Since we came on station, Demolition Boy Sir."
Grinder, Kell & Jesmin (WS)

Summer Glau as Dia Passik

"It’s a human custom. A new way to miscommunicate so you can find reason to kill one another."
Dia (about the language of flowers) (SC)

Ethan Peck as Gavin Darklighter

"Run up this rift valley and hit something the third of the size of an X-wing, without the benefit of a targeting computer? That's impossible."
"That's nothing. Back home in Beggar's Canyon …"
"I don't think any pilot from Tatooine ever found a mission tough, especially when it involves racing through a canyon."
Nawara Ven, Gavin Darklighter, and Wedge Antilles

Rosario Dawson as Inyri Forge

"While you Wraiths were running around in disguise or doing your ground missions, we've been following Zsinj all over space."
Rogue Squadron pilot Inyri Forge

Owain Yeoman as Castin Donn

"If Castin here is any good, yes. Otherwise, we're doomed."
"It'll work. My code and patches always work. Well, usually."
Myn Donos and Castin Donn

Guest Starring:

James Marsters as Kirtan Loor

"You are afraid of Corran Horn finding you, yes?"
"He would kill me if he had the opportunity to do so."
"But the chances of your running into him here, on Imperial Center, are what, one in trillions?"
"Corran Horn has an annoying facility for beating those kinds of odds and showing up where he is least wanted."
Ysanne Isard and Kirtan Loor

Claudia Black as Ysanne 'Iceheart' Isard

"It is interesting we have not met before, you and I, having been foes for so long. I expected you to be taller."
"I expected you to be dead."
Isard and Wedge Antilles finally acquaint themselves

Mark Sheppard as Booster Terrik

"That's treason. I like it."
Booster Terrik

David Duchowny as Diric Wessiri

"Die, Derricote, Die!"
Diric Wessiri, while ambushing Kirtan Loor
