Nothing is official, yet. Variety is reporting that Girls star Adam Driver may be the next Sith Lord in Star Wars Episode VII. Again, Variety is reporting that no deal has been signed as of yet. If this is fact true, Driver would be the first official cast member of Star Wars Episode VII.


From Variety: “Driver’s name had been rumored during the casting process, but in recent weeks, the Indiana native has become Disney and LucasFilms’ top choice to play the main villain.

The delay in making a decision was due to scheduling issues with “Star Wars” and his HBO show “Girls.” Sources say it’s not just Season 4 that was the hangup, but also future seasons, since future “Star Wars” installments could also coincide with upcoming seasons of the HBO Lena Dunham comedy”.

So we are still waiting for the official word from both Disney and Lucasfilm. When it arrives in our inbox Maniacs we will share it with you!

I am confused.  Who the hell is this this guy and why is he now in Star Wars???  

Any opinions?  Input?  Because I know fuck all about him.

 I dont watch Girls because I'm afraid of seeing Lena Dunham naked so I dont think I've seen this guy in anything I can remember off the top my head.

Still I like that its a fresh face for Star Wars and the guy was rumored for MoS 2 so it seems he is doing something right.

pairing MoS and Star Wars isn't a good avenue to tread... i recognize the point, but let's not get hasty.

Mark Hamill was an unknown at the time of Star Wars, so I guess this could be a good thing.  Maybe?

Shit..i thought this was Justin Long.

 He's a decent actor and I like that he's relatively unknown.  He's been popping up in more and more stuff over the last couple years.  He had parts in Inside Llewyn Davis and Lincoln.

So he is going to be evil.  Evil WHO?  Evil WHAT?  Thrawn?  He looks like he could do that.  O_o

He's obviously going to play a young Bail Organa during a flashback/time travel scene. Or a ghost advising Leia's son, because F it :P

I don't think Thrawn exists outside of the Expanded Universe, does he?
