With Breaking Bad wrapping up several months ago and with JJ Abrams working on the latest film in the Star Wars film series actor Jesse Plemons, who is best known as playing Todd in the final season of Breaking Bad, is rumored to be in the running for an undetermined part in the upcoming untitled Episode VII. Plemons played a fantastic villain type character as the either evily incompetent Todd or just so crazy intelligent that it was all an act Todd.
Plemons will be meeting with Abrams in the coming weeks, most likely to discuss a role in the film. Plemons impressed Abrams and the casting crew with his audition tape. Due to his slight resemblance to to Mark Hamil (Luke Skywalker) the rumor is that he could play the son of Luke, but that could get well fishy because who is the mother. I guess we can file this under yet another actor that is rumored for the film with the last two Doctors and Sherlock himself also being mentioned at one point. Stay tuned for more information.
