'Breaking Bad' Star in Talks for 'Star Wars: Episode VII' Role

It's been a while since we've heard anything solid from the Star Wars casting front. Today, The Wrap kicked off what is sure to be a busy year of casting announcements with word that Breaking Bad and Friday Night Lights star Jesse Plemons is in final talks for a lead role in Star Wars: Episode VII.

The site reports that Plemons has already gone through one audition process and is set to fly into L.A. to meet with director J.J. Abrams.

Though who exactly Plemons would play in the sequel wasn't revealed, it is very much possible that he could be playing a younger version of Mark Hamill's Luke Skywalker character.

In addition to his TV work, Plemons has starred in a number of films dating back to 1998's Finding North. His highest profile films to date include Paul, The Master and Battleship.

Plemons is one of a handful of young, capable and talented actors rising in Hollywood.

There are still rumors that Benedict Cumberbatch, Chiwetel Ejoifor and Sullivan Stapleton are in the running for roles, though none of those rumors have been confirmed. Other actors who have publicly confirmed that they auditioned for the film include Michael B. Jordan and Saoirse Ronan.

We should be finally be hearing some sort of casting news for Episode VII in the coming weeks. The script is expected to be completed this month with filming slated to begin in the U.K. this spring.

Would you cast Plemons in a lead role for Episode VII?
