Is the Breaking Bad's child murderer going to appear in a major role in the new Star Wars?

There have been rumours that will be involved in ' upcoming Star Wars: Episode VII — The Force Awakens... While it is still not a 100% sure whether Plemons is going to feature in the sequel; the director has now confirmed that the Breaking Bad psychopath is a frontrunner among the actors for a leading role in the much anticipated sci-fi.

Abrams told The Wrap at at the Television Critics Association yesterday:

He is one of the actors that we've talked to, yeah. But, you know–it's not often that I read about actors that I'm going to be meeting–that I get to read articles about actors who are going to come in. And so I get to see someone and say, ‘Oh, I read that I'm going to see you.’... It's usually agents talking to people about what's happening. It's a lot of noise.

Plemons has denied the rumours so far, he said a definite "no", when HitFix asked him about his involvement in the sci-fi. However, he was not really able to keep a poker face and with a lot of awkward pauses and a grin he added:

Yeah, I think it's just one of those crazy rumours.


With the director's confirmation about the talks, now it is not just a crazy rumour any more, but a very likely possibility.
