Sebastian Stan on rumors of him playing a young Luke Skywalker in #StarWars: "If @HamillHimself calls me personally to tell me that he feels inclined to share this role with me then I'll believe it." 👀https://t.co/i9rZzYvW4s pic.twitter.com/MvftVLlcLk

In an interview with Good Morning America, Stan said, “Well, if Mark Hamill calls me personally to tell me that he feels inclined to share this role with me, then I’ll believe it. Until then, I won’t believe it.”
However, and I speak from experience, I initially thought that The Mandalorian had actually cast Stan as Hamill’s stand-in for the Season 2 finale. Then, I saw the CGI and wished they had!
Hamill has voiced support in the past, but as of yet, there’s no word on if he’s personally reached out to Stan following the interview.
Heck, Mark has tacitly given his blessing. Sorta:

But what do you think? Could Sebastian Stan stand-in for Mark Hamill as Luke Skywalker? Do you, like Mark, stan Stan for Luke? Let us know in the comments below.
