How Sebastian Stan Could Totally Play A Young Luke Skywalker

"Looks like he could be my son!"

Face-swapping may be all the rage on Snapchat right now, but it also provided the internet with a crazy revelation this week — Star Wars’ Mark Hamill and Captain America: Civil War’s Sebastian Stan look incredibly alike.

Instagram user morphy_me recently photoshopped Stan’s face onto a photo of Luke Skywalker, and it’s hard to deny the resemblance.

Now fans are hoping to get Disney to produce a movie with Stan playing a young Skywalker, to find out what the character did between Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens.

The news of the uncanny resemblance eventually made its way to the two actors themselves, however, and it looks like we won’t be seeing Stan as Skywalker just yet.

“Appreciate this and thank you,” the actor said. “Went out for Star Wars four times but wasn’t meant to be.”

Hamill also responded to the comparisons, saying, “Looks like he could be my son!”

Only time will tell if the powers that be will catch wind of the resemblance and put it to good use.
