Casting Rays Star Wars: Chris Archer as Luke Skywalker
He’s a nice guy, he’s had to learn the trade from a master (David Price as Obi-Wan Kenobi), and his pitches are as effective as a light sabre. Furthermore, when the Rays need someone to shut down the Death Star, he’s the one they’d call on to lead the way.
Right now, we’d say Archer is at the Empire Strikes back in terms of Luke Skywalker levels. He’s about to reach the Return of the Jedi state, so MLB better be ready to face his Jedi tricks.
