There have been a lot of casting rumors floating around J.J. Abrams’ Star Wars, but it looks like we finally have something maybe kinda close to almost being confirmed.
While nothing’s been made official yet, Adam Driver is in talks to play a Darth Vader-type character in the upcoming Episode VII. According to Variety, nothing’s been confirmed because of some scheduling issues with Girls that may conflict with filming. Lena Dunham seemed to have cleared up these issues on Twitter:
We're VERY proud of Adam Driver re: Star Wars. He's about to rip a hole in da force. Is that a thing? I guess I should see those movies?— Lena Dunham (@lenadunham) February 26, 2014
But then she followed that up with this bit of backpeddling
I confirm nothing bc I know nothing bc I'm on a plane with my dad! I just like Adam more than almost anyone, and JJ Abrams a whole lot too.— Lena Dunham (@lenadunham) February 26, 2014
Episode VII: Boneable Siths is supposed to start shooting in April, so we should have more casting-somethings-between-rumors-and-news flying around soon. But seriously, was there ever a face more perfect for the Dark Side?
