Hayden Christensen the New Poker Brat?

Ok, I have to admit I may be dating myself here. When I first heard that a Star Wars actor was going to play Phil Hellmuth in an upcoming movie titled "The Madison Kid", my mind ran through the cast of A New Hope. Obviously Harrison Ford has better things to do. Lando? Not likely. Haven't heard much from Mark Hamill lately - maybe it is him. Then I kept reading the article and realized it was none other than young Lord Vader himself, Hayden Christensen. (pictured at right)

I'm sure anyone from the younger generation would have thought of him first, but since I (still) own Return of the Jedi on vinyl (that is a "record album" for those of you not in the know) I hope I'm forgiven.

Personally, the thought of sitting through two hours of the life of Phil Hellmuth on big screen doesn't excite me too much. In fact, the only way I would have any interest in this film whatsoever is if they had cast Wil as the Poker Brat, or at the very least used James Earl Jones for voiceovers. Now THAT I would have paid money to see.
