Lately, there’s been so many posts on Star Wars and the disillusioned franchise it has become. Actually, it can be quite nauseating. So as a non-fanboy, I found it highly amusing to find out that George Lucas (the ultimate ‘manboy’) first offered Burt Reynolds the role of Han Solo. Holy Frig, that would have been something special.
Then Lucas would have to offer the role of Chewbacca to Dom DeLuise. Jesus H., Cannonball Run in Space. Yes, please.
BTW, Star Wars fanatics, ‘Flash Gordon’ was a far superior film than any of the ‘Star Wars’, and yes, those are fighting words.
