Keri Russell On The Possibility Of Re-Teaming With J.J. Abrams For STAR WARS

Keri Russell, a frequent collaborator and favorite of J.J. Abrams talks about joining the director for the next installment of Star Wars. She was almost in Star Trek and is close with Abrams so this is a real possibility. Continue on for the interview.

TV Line sat down with Keri Russell to discuss her new show The Americans on FX and briefly touched on the possibility of joining J.J. Abrams on Star Wars:

"It spoiled me to work with JJ and Matt (Reeves) [on Felicity]. Not only do I love them as people because they're so funny and easy and good but they were just so talented. I've worked on other projects and you get the script and you're like 'but why isn't it good'.... In response to the question of who she's playing in the new Star Wars film: "Anyone he lets me play. I'm waiting for my call", she jokes. I would do anything for JJ, honestly I would do craft service. And when asked if she's a Star Wars fan: Yes, of course. And now with my son, that's all he talks about.

Interesting enough, we know that Matthew Vaughn pitched for the director gig with Chloƫ Moretz as a female lead in the new installment. With the script already in place from Michael Ardnt perhaps that's a clue that the main protagonist of the next Star Wars films will be female (the internet chatter among critics and bloggers certainly leans in that direction)? Russell previously worked with Abrams on Felicity which launched both their careers into the upper stratosphere. She reunited with the director in 2006's Mission: Impossible III, Abrams first big, feature film and was in talks for an unspecified role in Star Trek but schedules didn't align. We'll have to see if Abrams and Russell can connect for Star Wars.
