‘Star Wars’ Adam Driver: ‘Girls’ Actor in Talks to Play the Villain | Variety


adam-driver-star-wars-2

And you are??? Any relations to Minnie Driver? Taxi Driver? Pile Driver? Ok, even of this crap. Now, could this be a good this to have an unknown actor, at least to me anyway, to play a villain role in the new Star Wars movie? Sure, there were many relatively unknown actors to play the heroes in Episode 4 like Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher and Harrison Ford who had many smaller roles in Coppola’s movie. The two more established actors were Alec Guiness and Peter Cushing helped to round out the cast. Now for the new movie, the unknowns will be the stars of the movie and unknown, Adam Driver, to play the villain. My two cents, now worth less than that, is this character going to have a long lasting screen presence like Darth Vader as the article suggests below or will he be done in by the end of the new movie ala Darth Maul? (yes, I know Maul lives on in the comics and in the animated clone wars but no one cares.) I for one loved seeing Maul but they hype and the limited amount of screen time made this a less than impressive character let alone a villain. I can’t say that Adam will be doing Admiral Thrawn from the Zahn series but the cannon after Return, made clear by Disney, will not matter.

Any thoughts on this matter?

Adam Driver is ready to travel to a galaxy far, far, away.Sources tell Variety that while no deal is done yet, the “Girls” actor is close to signing on to play the villain in J.J. Abrams’ “Star Wars: Episode VII.” Exact details are unknown, but the character is said to be in the vein of iconic “Star Wars” villain Darth Vader.Driver, 30, is the first cast member to be revealed for Walt Disney Studios and LucasFilm’s highly-anticipated “Star Wars” installment, which will open in theaters on Dec. 18, 2015.The big-budget tentpole, directed by J.J. Abrams, is scheduled to shoot at London’s Pinewood Studios in April. Additional cast members will likely be announced in the next month.“Star Wars: Episode VII” will continue the Jedi saga where “Return of the Jedi” left off.
