Every day brings a new Star Wars Episode VII tidbit. In case you missed yesterday’s casting bits, Jason Flemyng tweeted (and then deleted) a picture of his Star Wars audition script. Bleeding Cool has the dialog from those script pages (slight spoilers if space apples actually appear in the final draft) and news that Dr. Who’s Matt Smith also took a Star Wars meeting.
They stop shy of saying Smith officially auditioned, but don’t let that stop you from picturing a TARDIS or sonic screwdriver easter egg when the film debuts on December 18, 2015.
Matt Smith makes his long overdue jump to film next year in Ryan Gosling’s How To Catch A Monster. He appears alongside potential Episode VII cast mate, Saoirse Ronan. If cast in Star Wars, and if How To Catch A Monster lives up to its hype, Smith could very well have established himself as a power figure in the sci-fi/fantasy film world by the end of 2015.
Are there many English actors left who haven’t yet been attached to an Episode VII audition rumor? My list is nearly all crossed off.
