Darthur Rimbaud

I recently heard that Leo DiCaprio turned down the role of Anakin in the prequels. Something about his thoughts of feeling unready to take a role in such a monumental franchise.

But he basically played that part already. It was one of the first things he did. Remember?

That Rimbaud movie basically tells the story of Obi-Wan and Anakin with poetry instead of the Force. And it's that Remus Lupin guy instead of Obi-Wan.
Oh, and their sexual relationship is more explicit. Who needs fan fiction when you have bardic romance? Am I right?

Often.

I am often right.

 

Bonus Question!

Rimbaud versus Anakin? 

Well, Rimbaud did die somewhat ignominiously at a fairly young age, and he abandoned poetry at an even earlier one, but Anakin forsook the light around the same time, which was its own death after a fashion, and that really didn't work out well for him at all.

Um . . . I suppose that the French guy scrapes by here, for he didn't enable the tyrannical oppression of an entire galaxy when he strayed from his path.
