In some STAR WARS news, various outlets are reporting that Jesse Plemons is in talks to take on one of the lead roles in J.J. Abrams’ upcoming STAR WARS: EPISODE VII. Plemons is best known for his appearance as Todd in AMC’s BREAKING BAD, and has also featured in THE MASTER, BATTLESHIP and FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS.

After impressing Abrams with an initial audition, Plemons is set to meet with the director next week to discuss things further. As for the role that Plemons is in discussions for, strong rumours suggest that the actor is being lined up to play the son of Luke Skywalker.

That’s all we have for now, but expect more on this as it develops.

STAR WARS: EPISODE VII is scheduled for an 18th December, 2015 release.

Yeah, he looks a bit like Matt Damon crossed with an angry Milky Bar Kid.
