It seems like every actor in Hollywood wants a chance to be in the new Star Wars movie. This is a golden opportunity for anyone to break into the industry or re-ignite a fledgling acting career. So it’s no surprise that actress Olivia Munn wants to be a part of director J.J. Abrams’ journey into the Star Wars universe in Episode VII.
While taking part in a Twitter interview, Munn expressed her interest in landing a role, or job, on the new Star Wars movie. Who would she play? Munn proposed playing Han Solo’s daughter. She would also opt to work craft service on the production. Read Olivia Munn’s tweet below:

Olivia Munn got her start in Hollywood by co-hosting G4’s Attack of the Show from 2006 to 2010. She famously covered San Diego Comic-Con while cosplaying as a metal bikini-wearing Princess Leia (see above). There’s no question that putting Olivia Munn in Episode VII would be good for Olivia Munn. But would putting Olivia Munn in Episode VII be good for Episode VII?
Munn’s career after leaving Attack of the Show has seen its fair share of ups and downs. She recently appeared in Steven Soderbergh’s Magic Mike opposite Channing Tatum, and has a supporting role on Aaron Sorkin’s The Newsroom on HBO. Munn also recently appeared in the comedy The Babymakers, which is currently enjoying a 8% “rotten” rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
If the new Star Wars sequel trilogy will follow the Skywalker and Solo offspring, could you see Olivia Munn as an older Jaina Solo?
