Return of the Geordie

Following on from the latest grim developments on Tyneside, and our realisation that the current owner is not dissimilar in appearance to a certain Star Wars character, we thought it might be worth trying to lighten the mood by inviting suggestions for other stars in our recasting of Return of the Jedi.

Please note, this is not simply some cheap shoddy stunt to mention the prospect of Cheryl Cole dressed as Princess Leia in a gold bikini throttling Jabba with a chain. (Which incidentally, if ever released on DVD would surely generate sufficient income to buy the club).

The question is, how far can we realistically stretch the metaphor?

Is Chris Hughton prepared for a Han Solo role (currently groping in the dark, blinded by the light)?

Is Kevin Nolan's physical resemblance enough to land him the role of Luke Skywalker?

Will the spirit of Sir Bobby crop up at certain points to instruct our heroes to "use the force"?

What do you think?
