Karl Urban wouldn’t take Star Wars role if offered

August 8th, 2013 by bash Comments


Karl Urban has revealed that he never wants to appear in a Star Wars movie.

During an interview with IGN, the New Zealand actor said:

“J.J. is behind the camera,” Urban said. “There’s a difference when you’re putting a face and a personality in front of the camera, and I wouldn’t want to do that do an audience. I, as an audience member, wouldn’t want to see an actor from ‘Star Trek’ in ‘Star Wars.’ I just wouldn’t.

“When I go into a ‘Star Wars’ movie I want to be completely enveloped. I don’t want to be taken out of the picture by going, ‘Oh my God, there’s Scotty, what’s he doing in Star Wars?'”

Star Wars Episode VII is set for release in 2015.

Hi all. I'm Bash and love anything and everything to do with Star Wars. Although I've watched hundreds of movies, read dozens of books and played numerous computer games from other genres and franchises since, nothing has come close to seeing George Lucas' epic for the very first time. I hope you all like the site and come back often.
