Sebastian Stan ‘Auditions’ for the Role of Young Luke Skywalker

Sebastian Stan and Mark Hamill have been in the media lately due to a meme that went viral discussing similarities in their appearance. So much so that Hamill made a joke about NOT saying the words ‘Sebastian, I am your father’ – even though he is. That wasn’t the first time either.

On Fathers Day, a fan asked if Sebastian wished him a happy Fathers Day and he played up the joke by saying he forgot to call. Sebastian also ran with the moment on GMA recently where he recorded a video telling Hamill that he ‘got the list of groceries’ while he was out.

Needless to say, the two enjoy the jokes as much as fans do, and interviewers are getting a kick out of it as well. Sebastian is currently on a press tour for I, Tonya and a few questions have come up about the Luke Skywalker thing. While for now, it’s nothing serious, one interviewer had a bit of fun with Sebastian recently.

What do we mean by that? Well, Sebastian was thrust into an ‘audition’ for young Luke Skywalker and it’s absolutely the best thing we’ve seen all day.

It’s clear that Sebastian wasn’t prepared for an ‘audition’ and the numerous outtakes are absolutely fantastic. In fact, this segment was easily one of our favorite interviews with him so far. While it’s all a joke for now, Sebastian and Mark did say they’d be totally on board with the idea. Leaves some room for thought.
