David Oyelowo, Freddie Prinze Jr. & Others In Talks For STAR WARS: REBELS
As well as being rumored to have read for a role in Star Wars Episode VII, Oyelowo is also one of the names on the list of actors THR reckon are in talks to lend their voices to the lead characters in the upcoming Disney XD animated series..
We finally have some Star Wars casting news! Granted probably not the type you'd prefer, but Lucasfilm's upcoming animated series set between the prequels and the original trilogy is also pretty highly anticipated. THR have learned that David Oyelowo, Freddie Prinze Jr., Vanessa Marshall, Taylor Gray and Steven Jay Blum are in the process of being cast as the voice leads for the series, which will make its debut in fall 2014. Once again, no character details..but feel free to speculate away! The Butler's Oyelowo was one of the names rumored to have gone in for a reading for Star Wars Episode V11, but there's nothing to say he isn't involved in both projects. Simon Kinberg (X-Men: First Class), Dave Filoni (The Clone Wars) and Greg Weisman (Young Justice) are executive producing.
