Getting any official information regarding the highly-anticipated Star Wars: Episode VII has been virtually impossible and with the entire project being surrounded by rumor, hearsay and untruths, it's difficult to separate the speculation from the Bantha s@%t. The latest noise surrounding the movie is the potential casting of 300: Rise of an Empire star .
According to Bleeding Cool the British actor met with and he is very much in the director's plans for Star Wars 7:
Jack O’Connell... is a real contender for a key role in Star Wars: Episode VII. I believe that he’s met with Abrams and the signs I’m getting are that this meeting went very well.
More Star Wars goodies
To be honest, nearly every working actor between the ages of 18 and 35 has been linked to Star Wars: Episode VII over the past couple of months, so I won't put any stock in this rumor until I hear something official.
However, if O'Connell is set for a role in the movie, who would you like to see him play? Sound off in the comments below.
