Jesse Plemons Denies STAR WARS: EPISODE VII Rumor

Jesse Plemons Denies STAR WARS: EPISODE VII Rumor

Barely keeping a straight poker face, watch as Breaking Bad alum Jesse Plemons, who's the latest actor linked to Star Wars: Episode VII, dismiss rumors of his involvement in J.J. Abrams' film. Check it out!

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!
ds9epicfan - 1/19/2014, 1:38 AM
Do all these actors who are denying casting rumors,all have the same agent or something??Anyway,I'll always wait for an official announcement for any role that's being cast,for whatever movie is getting made!!

I hope that's right, I don't see him as Ben Skywalker !!!
mgeoff88 - 1/19/2014, 3:07 AM
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.

So this is scheduled to start filming around april/may and the only cast we can confirm is the big 3

He even sounds a bit like Matt Damon.

"...held back a smug grin..."

Do you know what smug means?

@Rpendo I meant "small," but my hands were typing something else. Would have misused the word though, so thanks;)

Wouldn't be upset if he didn't get the part.
beane2099 - 1/19/2014, 7:59 AM
If you squint your eyes a little when he talks you really would swear that's Matt Damon. His voice sounds like him too.

Abrams' schtick is to hide as much as possible about a film before it comes out. In some respects I applaud that in this time of leaked scripts and such. Frankly there haven't been any official announcements even about the original cast members.

Still the official announcement:rumor ratio isn't quite as bad for Star Wars as it is for WB/DC. With Star Wars it's pretty much a given that the originals are coming back and there will be some young characters. With WB/DC we have exactly four pieces of real information (Cavill/Superman, Affleck/Bats, Gadot/Wonder Woman, The Rock/Something DC, and Superman/Batman coming) versus the 8,263,435 rumors. But between all the rumors about all these franchises and all the parties that lie about them not being true I no longer believe any rumors ever. I'll entertain them but I won't put no stock in 'em.

@Bravado That would be hilarious to see.
Enki - 1/19/2014, 8:02 AM
@loki668, you just made my day, man.

"I'M AQUAMAN BITCH!!!!" And then Momoa just runs off. That would be hilarious to watch.
beane2099 - 1/19/2014, 8:03 AM
And I'll say this about Latino Review, they're not always right but at least when they report a Star Wars rumor they don't say it came a "trusted entertainment source" at one company who happens to be "friends with someone at Lucas Film."
Fabius - 1/19/2014, 8:04 AM
His face. The fusion of matt damon and rupert Ron grint from Harry potter. Anyway I can t tell who he could be play. The son of Jar jar binks or Jaba.? Wait and see.
User1134 - 1/19/2014, 8:11 AM
OMG, He Smiled, His Hand Twitched, His Eyes Glimmered...Whatever, Stupid Rumors...
Super12 - 1/19/2014, 8:16 AM

thewonderer - 1/19/2014, 8:45 AM

I would be laughing my ass off if they push it back to May 6th 2016. That would be trolling level over 9 000 from Disney!


Haha! That would be awesome if they did that.

@DukeNukem, Answer is simple. It's being developed by the same lying hack that swore up and down Cumberpatch was not Khan...
GoldenAge88 - 1/19/2014, 9:17 AM
Dwayne Johnson as Darth Bane. RESTORE THE ORDER OF TWO!
Brady1138 - 1/19/2014, 10:03 AM
That's not a poker face, that's just how he looks. Heck, he looks like he had a poker face on more so in previous questions.

Almost finished Breaking Bad on Netflix/ DVD . . . thanks for NOT putting "SPOILERS" warning.

Really . . . douchey of you not to put a Spoilers warning on Plemons character on Breaking Bad.

ItalianPsycho - 1/19/2014, 10:42 AM
Goddamn it!!!! I'm tired of all theses rumors, just cast someone already!!!!!!
MisterBabadook - 1/19/2014, 10:51 AM
Yeah, his body language says it all. He's loose in all his answers and rigid in that one and maintains strong eye contact. With all the rumors, why him? He's probably auditioned if that's as far as it goes.

@intrn8: dude, as bad as I feel for you, that's your fault for not digesting it fast enough.
CaptainAmerica31 - 1/19/2014, 11:46 AM
This is getting old. Stop posting crap from Latino review, and just stop with the rumors for this movie all together. 100% of the rumors for this film have been debunked. All that's left is Ejifor and Fassbender. I expected Fassbender to debunk it soon. Ejifor on the other hand could actually be in the hunt. Either way stop with this BS.
Brady1138 - 1/19/2014, 12:30 PM
@Spidey31 Couldn't agree more! Between this and all the Batman vs. Superman rumors (and the idiot fanboys who swallow it all up like it's fact), I'm about to just stop looking at movie news sites altogether because I'm absolutely SICK of all the false reporting that's going on.
