Episode 2 Anakin Casting Rumor

Thu, Feb 25, 99 12:53:43 PM EST


Bill Fossey sent in the following casting rumor:

My name is Bill Fossey, and just recently I heard from my former acting instructor Maurice Good, an Irish actor I know who used to be in the Royal Shakespeare company (and has worked with Sir Alec Guinness on many an occasion). He told me that he did a bit part in Episode 1 and that a former pupil of his named Donald MacKinnon was the front-runner for the part of Anakin Skywalker in Episode 2. I don't know if you are familiar with him down in the states but he has done quite a few things here in Canada. I would like to know if you have heard anything about this, because I think that he would be perfect for the part as he is a HUGE actor and by this I mean tall and built like a football player. Plus he is well known for playing the "bad guys" on television here and I am pretty sure he is about the right age. If I can find it, I will send the address of his fan-page.


He then sent this follow up:


Most recently, he was in an episode of "Lexx-the Series" ( playing an alien bounty hunter type of thing, and as for movies, he just finished "The Newwaterford Girls" with Andrew McCarthy (of Weekend at Bernies fame). I know that he apprenticed with The Royal Shakespeare Company in England with actor Peter Wight (of "Secrets and Lies) for a while and played the leads in "Beauty and the Beast" and "The Europeans" but I'm afraid that's all I know at the moment.
