The film awards season is providing bloggers the opportunity to press many actors whose names are either attached to a major upcoming film, or linked only by rumor. In this case, HitFix caught up with actor Jesse Plemons at the SAG Awards, where he was supporting Breaking Bad, and asked him whether there's any truth to reports that he's being considered for a lead Star Wars: Episode VII role. He answered, "No," but he gave a small grin as soon as the highly-anticipated sequel was mentioned. "Yeah, I think it's just one of those crazy rumors," he added. Though Latino Review reported yesterday that Plemons was "locked in," previous reports said the actor would be flying to Los Angelas for his second audition and finally meeting director J.J. Abrams. What do you think?

These casting "rumors" are turning into UFO conspiracies for crying out loud.

Afterwards, he was punched in the throat by Jason Momoa who ran in front of the camera and yelled "I'M AQUAMAN BITCH!"

Latino Review makes it up an idiotic CBM reports it. Personally, until a studio confirms something, then I never believe it. What's LTRs percentage now, like 1% accuracy on their shit? [frick] them!

It does seem like he isn't being honest... Every single person that lies has a tell. Mine is my pants catch on fire... ;P

I just don't see him as Luke Skywalker's son. I hope another actor is considered for the role.
