Which actors we'd cast in A New Hope if it was being remade today

Everybody's talking about Episode VII, but what would happen if A New Hope was made today?

We've come a long way since 1977, and despite all the special editions and updates George Lucas has made to his original space opera, it's more exciting to imagine what would happen if it were actually done all over again. Would the writing change? Sure, probably a little, but what really excites us is the possibility of seeing the film recast with modern actors.

Who would play whom? Well, we've come up with 13 actors to give you an idea of how we'd like to see it done. Tell us what you think and who you would cast if the power of the Force were in your hands.
