It's a trap! Celebrities pick their favorite Star Wars characters

08.18.2010

In a galaxy not so far away, your favorite actors/actresses/directors/Pauly Shore chose their favorite characters from STAR WARS.

This week IGN has been unveiling their list of Top 100 STAR WARS characters. In addition they also thought it would be fun to poll 75 celebrities to get their opinion on who ranks highest. It's interesting and amusing to see which character everyone chooses. You've got the favorite answer, Han Solo all the way down to assassin droid IG-88.

What I want to know is where's the love for Luke? Obviously George Lucas loves him, but someone, anyone profess your love for Luke! I personally started out adoring C-3PO. Then I got a little older and grew a massive crush on Han Solo. Who didn't though?

Watch the video to hear picks from Jon Favreau, Mark Wahlberg, Tina Fey, Nic Cage, James Cameron, and many others. Infograph analysis also included.

Hilarious that Boba Fett (a guy who gets like 5 minutes of screen time) is rated higher than majority of main cast.

My Fave...

seems to be everyone elses. I always liked Han Solo and to some extent Chewbacca best.

Poor Luke! Apparently Gran Moff Tarkin got as many votes as he did.

Obi Wan gets my vote because I've spent many hours waving my hand in front of the mirror saying "These are not the droids you're looking for."

Luke Skywalker. He's the hero of the series for crying out loud! How many times does he have to save Han Solo before he gets some goddamn recognition!

For me, it has to be the Jawa who yells "ooteenee!" - everything else in 'Star Wars' is secondary to that one, pure moment of droid-stealing excellence.

Where's the love indeed

Surprised about the lack of love for Luke. The cat acted bratish in the first but grew up quick to become a badass. Anakin was just whiny from word go, even as he aged until he became Vader. My favorite was from day one Luke.

What??? Nobody liked Luke Skywalker?

When I was 7 I totally wanted to be Luke Skywalker, had the super-buff action figure and everything! Both me and my dad really liked Admiral Ackbar too, but that was before the internet and when he blew up.

Im a big Star Wars fan, and i've come across a lot of characters in the books and games, but it is still Darth Vader. He is the best character ever, in my opinion.

Also got lots of love for Solo, Obi-Wan, Leia, Emperor, and from the books Grand Admiral Thrawn.

Darth Maul. No Question. Phantom Menace may go down as the worst SW flick in many fans' eyes...but it gave us (or just me) a bad-ass above all other bad-assess!

Darth effing' Maul, man!

Again, Darth..effing..Maul. I like Vader as much as the next guy but c'mon, if you want definition of deranged, secretive Sith apprentice, you gotta' get yourself a Darth Maul. Plus, Vader still had some good left in him. Maul was pure evil, bad to the bone, corrupt to the core. Red tats, horned head, fiery eyes, and a badass double-edged lightsaber! Okay, maybe he gets chopped in half, but he comes back after Return of The Jedi as...a cyborg!! It's the next best thing if you're not a zombie.

Vader

That's all that needs to be said. When he went good in Jedi it was THE best.
Runners up, R2D2, Chewie and Ob--Wan.

I got a chuckle from Lucas naming off everyone from the original trilogy first, and then saying "oh, and Anakin".

Maybe I'm in the minority here, but I always dug the Emperor. Something eerie and manipulative about him always intrigued me, like the devil on your left shoulder. Plus he always had that aura of confidence where you don't know if you have outwit him, or if he's playing you.

Vader by a long shot!

It's much more about Vader's fall and remption when looking at the saga as a whole than any other character. Yoda would be my second pick. "At 900 years old you are, look as good you will not!"

Awesome! Solo wins!

My favorite won- Han Solo, such a badass. My second favorite is Boba Fett, and I'm surprised he scored so low. It's almost the "cool" thing to like him these days.

LOL!

That was so great, awesome idea!

I love Nicolas Cage's answer.."The Trash Compactor"!

I cannot believe though that no one said Yoda. He's the greatest sci-fi character EVER!
