Finally! Some cast members have been announced for the about-to-begin-production Star Wars Episode VII – and at least a couple of the names are familiar.
Aside from the core actors who will be reprising their roles – Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew, and Kenny Baker – newcomers to the franchise will include familiar faces Andy Serkis (Lord of the Rings/The Hobbit) and Max Von Sydow, who has appeared in too many things to mention…
Another name you might recognize is Domhnall Gleeson, who is perhaps best known in these circles as Bill Weasley in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (and is also the son of Brendan Gleeson who played Mad-Eye Moody.)
Also listed are John Boyega (Attack the Block), Daisy Ridley (Mr. Selfridge), Adam Driver (Inside Llewyn Davis ), and Oscar Isaac (Inside Llewyn Davis ).
No mention on roles yet, however.
