Episode VII Casting: Jonathan Rhys Meyers?

Rumors from Latino Review

There has been some official Star Wars new today (see “Rebels” article here) and now for the rumors. Latino Review is reporting that here is a new cast member to Episode VII. Outside of Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill, and Carrie Fisher the rumor is that J.J. Abrams' alumni Jonathan Rhys Meyers (Mission Impossible: III) has joined the cast. 

Again this is from Latino Review and El Mayimbe. Only time will tell if the star of “The Tudors” and NBC’s upcoming “Dracula” will join the galaxy that isn’t so far far away. Episode VII is slated for a 2015 release.

The new Sith Lord? I can see it. Meyers is a phenomenal actor so I am down with having him in the new crew of Star Wars. I am excited to hear more.

 Gotta be Sith! I'm ready for more news though. I thought we would have a little more by now. I shouldn't be impatient.

Me thinks, he looks a tad like Hayden Christensen.  Grandson O' Vader perhaps?

 Regardless of what role it may be, this is a great addition to the cast.

meh... i should really avoid these updates for the next year. tooooo much speculation.

Granted it's early and unconfirmed but this could be good. I can definitely see him being a villain or a egotistical politician.

He plays another protocol droid that C-3PO falls in love with.

Maybe the rumors are wrong and he is actually starring in this year's Star Wars holiday special.

Loved him on The Tudors. I approve.

 I heard Miley Cyrus was going to be Leia's daughter and that Justin Beiber would her son.  I also heard that Dark Helmut will become canon, and that Jim Kirk will shoot first.  See how much fun lying is?
