…One of these five guys. Maybe.

Variety is reporting that J.J. Abrams is close to casting the lead role in Star Wars: Episode VII with only a handful of actors on his short list and it is a very interesting short list indeed. According to their sources the main character (who will not be the offspring of Leia and Han Solo or Luke and.. um… Luke’s friend) could be one of these five actors, however they did add he caveat that ‘the search is still on‘  just incase this turns out to be bunk.

Rather, it was a companion short and directorial debut of Star Wars art director Roger Christian shown only in select areas back in 1980 when The Empire Strikes Back first opened. It was only screened in Europe and Australia, and after disappearing without a trace, was long believed to be an urban legend by many Star Wars fans until it resurfaced in 2011.
