THe thing about this as a potential casting is I think it could work REALLY well. He has this innocent sort of look to him much like Luke Skywalker did in the first movie but, at the same time - this guy looks as though he has crazy eyes and could snap or turn to the dark side at a moment's notice. I like it.

he was great in Breaking Bad - he can do these heinous things and look like it's just another day on the job. No remorse, no care in the world.

Love this guy as an actor. He was amazing in Friday Night Lights the TV Series

Meth Damon was 1 of the best characters to appear in Breaking Bad. Not the brightest but I loved how, even when threatening to murder babies he was still well-mannered and polite. XXXD

Leave it to Disney to ruin a long run of talented actors in the star wars series. We went from Alec Guinness, to Harrison Ford, to Liam Neeson, to this loser.
