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?
I am often right.
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.
