Despite there being hundreds of actors out there who would literally kill to land a role in J.J. Abrams' Star Wars Episode VII, Denis Lawson, now sixty-six years old, claims that he actually turned down a role. Many Star Wars fans will know him for his role as Wedge Antilles, even though he isn't a very popular character from the original trilogy, so it is hard to believe him when he says that he got the call from the studio to return as Luke Skywalker's friend. But it is popular that they may have wanted to reunite as many people as possible from the original trilogy to make hardcore fans all giddy inside. "I'm not going to do that," he said when asked by The Courier if he'd return. "They asked me but it just would have bored me." Bored? HA. He actually said a while ago in an interview with Scotsman that he knows how "it's interesting to other people but I get really bored talking about it." It makes sense that he turned down the chance considering the fact that he never really liked the movie. He joins the small group people that don't like Star Wars.
Original Trilogy stars Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Anthony Daniels, Kenny Baker, and Peter Mayhew will unite with a completely new cast for the currently untitled Star Wars Episode VII, including John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Domhnall Gleeson, Max von Sydow, and Andy Serkis. The movie will hit theaters December 18, 2015.
