Landry from ‘Friday Night Lights’ and Some Guy from ‘Girls’ Might Be in the New ‘Star Wars’

So what's up with the new Star Wars. Let's let Collider tell you: 

Last night we learned that Friday Night Lights actor Jesse Plemons is being eyed for a role in the pic. Now THR has dumped a huge quantity of info about the follow-up, including word that Michael Fassbender, Hugo Weaving, and Adam Driver are all being eyed for roles.

Adam Driver is the guy from Girls, which I've never seen, so I can't add accurate commentary here other than that he looks like a modern-day Christian Slater. Also of note, the plot is apparently changing. 

 More interestingly, though, the script for Episode VII has apparently changed significantly since screenwriter Michael Arndt was pushed off the project, and the lead characters for Episode VII may now be the original trilogy stars: Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, and Harrison Ford.

Abrams, it's said, wants to give them a fitting send off before they move on with the new movies. What, this wasn't enough? 


The new Star Wars opens in December of 2015.
