RUMOR: Have These Two Actors Read For Roles In STAR WARS: EPISODE VII?

RUMOR: Have These Two Actors Read For Roles In STAR WARS: EPISODE VII?

This one comes from Jedi News, who originally posted that Emperor rumor. According to them Ksenia Solo (yes, really) and Spartacus actor Liam McIntyre have read for roles in J.J. Abrams upcoming Star Wars flick..

Jedi News first ran the rumor that Emperor Palpatine would be returning for Star Wars: Episode VII, which was then picked up by Latino Review who managed to uncover some more details on it's worth paying attention to another couple of casting rumors they've just posted. According to them brilliantly named Latvian actress Ksenia Solo (Black Swan, tv's The Lost Girl)is being considered for -- wait for it -- the role of the daughter of Princess Leia and Han Solo. They don't mention if she's actually read for it, or is just someone Abrams and the studio are looking at. This next one is a bit more solid -- apparently a correspondent of theirs from reports that he had a conversation with Spartacus actor Liam McIntyre who revealed that he read for a Jedi role in the movie. Of course even if these guys have read for roles, there's no guarantee they'll get them or even wind up front-runners but it's worth keeping an eye on.

Ah hell yea. Liam McIntyre was Batman pick. Loved him in Spartacus. Now he's gonna be a [frick]ing Jedi?

So far so good Abrams.

Horray more casting rumors of people I know nothing about.
mcminnjb1990 - 9/5/2013, 10:19 AM
Hell yeah spartacus as hans son yes please
Jazza815 - 9/5/2013, 10:19 AM
The fact that they've revealed that they have read for roles in the picture practically guarantees they won't be in it now

Ksenia Solo is amazing.
Love her on Lost Girl.
So I hope she can do both!!!!

im not fan of star wars (how the [frick]) i know :) but i would definitely watch if liam and benedict are in the movie.

Realistically, a ton of actors will audition for many of these roles. It's pretty pointless at this stage to care who is reading for a role.

Instead, let me know when Carrie Fisher is a size 2 again.

Star Wars is awesome (except the prequels).
JJ Abrams is awesome.
You know what does suck though?
Transformers sucks
Michael Bay sucks

Liam reminds me of Kyle Katarn.
gambgel - 9/5/2013, 10:51 AM
there will be like 100 actors reading for this movie, so if sites are gonna post each one, lets take a seat, because this will be loooooooooooong
CherryBomb - 9/5/2013, 10:54 AM
They just need to give it to Rachel Hurd Wood.

How about reporting some facts instead of rumors.?
Hellboy6666 - 9/5/2013, 11:09 AM
Old Mark Hamill looks exactly like my step dad...wonder how I can cash in on that???
inkslinger616 - 9/5/2013, 11:09 AM
I have been reading the Legacy of the force series and was never much a fan of Boba Fett until I read him putting his quarrels aside, reconnecting with his Granddaughter Mirta Gev and building Mandalore into the bad as planetary force it needs to be It is safe to say that I am a total Boba Fett fan now. If I had to pick where they go with this story I would say that parts of the Thrawn series, parts of Jacen Solo becoming Darth Caedus with help from lumiya and Jaina Solo coming into her own as the sword of the Jedi and of course Mark Hamil as the Jedi Grand Master Luke Skywalker [frick]in shit Up. Can't [frick]ing wait.

C'mon bro, at least do some sound like a sheep....she's around 5'3"...

@ Gusto

Okay that was pretty funny.
Sanderman - 9/5/2013, 11:20 AM
I think it's better if the movie uses unknowns for many of the characters. It's not like they need big names to sell Star Wars
Havenless - 9/5/2013, 11:54 AM
Her last name is Solo, and he looks a lot like Mark Hamill. This shit writes itself!

My first thought when I read about the rumour of the Emperor returning was "WTF??!!!!". But then I thought about it. He DID discover the method for maintaining his essence after physical death, after all. So that makes sense. But then it begs the question of why HIS master, the one who taught HIM the method doesn't also return (Darth Plagius or whatever). And if it's the midichlorians that's acting as middle man between a force-user and The Force, how does the force-user connect with The Force without being in a body filled up with midichlorians? Does anybody leave so many open holes as Lucas? I don't think so. Lucas f'd up Star Wars a LOT when he introduced midichlorians. Yoda's beautiful, mystical explanation in ESB is wrong now, based on that stupid tidbit.

I'm not familiar with either of em,which is a good thing .

As long as they can act.
RexDartEskimoSpy - 9/5/2013, 12:06 PM
Forget that Olsen Twig, there's your Scarlet Witch.

LucasMend - 9/5/2013, 12:07 PM
Liam's a very very good actor, hope he gets the role.
Facade - 9/5/2013, 12:12 PM
I have no idea who they are, so...that's a good start.
ndwwrestler2 - 9/5/2013, 12:15 PM
Her last name is "Solo"? I'm sold.
NoAssemblyReqd - 9/5/2013, 12:18 PM
So, is CBM going to report on everyone who reads for parts? At this stage, 4 months before shooting, that could be a few dozen actors per lead role.
DrRockso - 9/5/2013, 12:53 PM
Bingo!!! Cast them!!!!!
Exodus - 9/5/2013, 1:21 PM
I liked her in that small part she had in Black Swan and of course Lost Girl. That lady has amazing eyes.
DravinClaw - 9/5/2013, 1:45 PM
I will be reading the part of cantina patron #3
typicalfanboy - 9/5/2013, 1:48 PM
Damn. She fine.
symbiotics - 9/5/2013, 1:49 PM

Tracy Spiridakos should be Jaina Solo, she is very beautiful and worked with Abrams on Revolution so you know she can handle the action and acting.
genesis609 - 9/5/2013, 3:12 PM
i really wish the liam and the guy who played gannicus get roles in the marvel universe... the guy who played gannicus would make a great KAZAR...
JULEZ13 - 9/5/2013, 3:36 PM
I can definitely see Liam as a Jedi! Pretty perfectly actually. I hope he gets it.
jaycr - 9/5/2013, 4:11 PM
WOW, Ksenia Solo is gorgeous. I love her eyes.
SnapperCarr - 9/5/2013, 5:11 PM
I'd be cool with that.
