When considering actors whose are largely defined by a single role, especially when that one role is discernible for being their only popular role, I can’t think of any better example than Mark Hamill, who seemed to be destined to be a one-role wonder until his resurgence as a wonderful voiceover actor in the ’90s. Conversely, when I think about someone who is marginally famous for a few sub-noteworthy roles instead of anything insanely memorable, my mind reluctantly drifts to Corey Feldman, who has clearly created a larger deep end to jump into after falling off of the current deep end.
In a recent interview, Feldman showed much interest in taking on the role of Han Solo, Jr. for 2015’s Episode VII. Like Robert Pattinson’s Jar Jar Binks interest, this is a concept that has no base in reality, since no aspect of the story, or original character’s offspring, is public knowledge. Also, both of those are terribly shitty ideas to almost anyone with any vested interest and (new) hope in where the franchise will go. Pattinson, while unproven as an actor, but not necessarily a Star Wars actor, nearly gets a pass just because of his relative freshness [And likely smartass-itude – Ed.]. But Corey Feldman’s adult career is notable for little else besides a voice that is increasingly sounding like Christian Slater’s death rattle.
