With anticipation of casting confirmations reaching a fever pitch, it's only a matter of time now before billions of voices cry out and are suddenly silenced with-
Honestly, with how many rumors have been swirling around, and odds being strongly in favor of the entire cast of the original trilogy returning - Sorcerer's Apprentice Mickey will just be reanimating the deceased Fantasia-broom style - we've probably guessed, read about, or pulled out of a hat every cast member through sheer probability at this point.
That being said, Deadline Hollywood is confirming that J. J. Abrams will be holding a table-read of the completed script tomorrow; which is going to require all the major cast members to appear. I'm assuming J. J. borrowed a transporter from the Into Darkness set, because there's no way they'll be getting to the studio past the mob of fans eager to finally get some casting confirmations.
Deadline says they've heard the original cast - which will include Harrison Ford in a huge role -, the one officially confirmed newcomer, Adam Driver (Girls), as well as rumored John Boyega (Attack the Block) and Maisie Richardson-Sellers would all be present. Where it gets interesting is in the next name they listed...
Okay! I'm sorry, that was cruel of me. The actor is none other than Inside Llewyn Davis star Oscar Isaac.
The question we're all asking, naturally, is how does he look with blue skin? Has anyone photo-shopped it yet? No? I expected more of you all...
That being said, I think Isaac is an amazing actor, one of the very best of the new stable of rising Hollywood stars, and I would be ecstatic to hear official confirmation of his casting in the new Star Wars.
Plus, he can sing like nobody's business... Jabba's palace scene confirmed! Heard it here first, folks.
Ah, I found that Oscar Isaac-Thrawn pic.
Let me know what you guys think of Oscar Isaac possibly starring in Star Wars Episode VII, if there're any other actors you think will be confirmed soon, and if we'll finally be getting some solid casting info tomorrow at the table-read!
Star Wars Episode VII releases in the US, December 18, 2015.
