Dan Telfer is a gifted comedian who will bring a much-needed geek sensibility to the project. Okay. Sure, he hasn't really done any professional acting but he's been a stand-up comic since the mid-90's and has toured with Janeane Garofalo, Patton Oswalt, Maria Bamford, Paul F. Tompkins, Brian Posehn and other heavy hitters in the industry.
He has a unique comic voice with distinctly nerdy leanings. He's versed in Lovecraft, Star Wars, Voltron and, perhaps most famously, dinosaurs. He's a great big geek! And when I say "great big", well, the dude is 6'5"! Qui-Gon Jinn was only 6'4"! Cast this guy as a Wookiee!
Dan Telfer will bring the deep-seated nerdy passion we all feel for the Star Wars universe to the table. Like you, he feels betrayed by the prequels. Like you, he sees the Disney revival as a chance for redemption but only if the films are made with care by people who actually believe in the inherent awesomeness of the world George Lucas created. (I don't actually know if Dan feels this way about any of this but probably he does.)
And if he's not a good fit for any of the characters in the new flicks, I'm pretty sure Dan knows his way around a puppet. Salacious Crumb Jr, anyone?
