It turns out that Kurt Russell auditioned for Star Wars and it also turns out that there is footage of it. Some of you may already be wise to this information, but this is the first time that I have heard about it (and I call myself a Star Wars nerd! HA!). The idea of Kurt being in Star Wars is a crazy thought. I mean, imagine him as Han or Luke; the tone of the film would be a lot different, I assume.
The guy auditioning with him is William Katt and they are both trying for the parts of Han and Luke. The script they are reading from is not the one from the final cut of the film, but it seems they are speaking primarily about the destructive power of the Death Star. Cool, right?
