Jedi Master SQL caps a busy day with some great news. Over to the Wise One.
Just confirmed the first signed and sealed casting. He's British, and Jedi News have already reported it TWICE!!!!!
And no, it's not Sherlock...
The actor is BBC Spook's star David Oyelowo who is due to be in Jurassic World. He was also in Red Tails, so is a Lucasfilm alumni and was recently in Lincoln for Kathleen Kennedy. REALLY, REALLY good actor and a brilliant choice. Hope he has a great role.
I am being told that not only will he be in Episode 7 but the plan is for him to also be in Rebels playing a character that sets up his Episode VII character! All part of the major EpVII co-ordinated push being pulled together by Simon Kinberg and the first major sign that Rebels will be the vehicle to setup the masses for EpVII fever!!
Oh boy...as ever, until you read it on the Official Site it's not confirmed, so stay tuned.
