Gary Oldman Approached to Join STAR WARS: EPISODE VII

Gary Oldman is the crème de la crème of the acting world. Over the course of his incredible career, he has personified such characters as an assassin, a commissioner, a cop, a vampire, a wizard, a Doctor and countless others. Now he may add a Jedi, a Sith, or another colorful character in our favorite galaxy far, far away, to that resume.

We've certainly heard a bunch of casting rumors up to this point for J.J. Abrams' "Star Wars" Episode VII". Oldman actually substantiated this one, however, and stated, "They've called, yeah. I'm more cynical about it (casting) now, I believe it when I'm on the plane home. You know, the deal isn't done (until then). But yeah, they've inquired."

Of course an actor of Oldman's stature doesn't need to call for an audition for the larger-than-life production. Details are being kept very under wraps for the production, as expected for a project like this, not to mention any of Abrams' project. Abrams did confirm the script was done however, so I imagine solidified casting news should surface soon.

If joining, which side of the force would Oldman identify with? Frankly, it doesn't matter to me. Add Oldman to any film, it instantly becomes better.

    I agree that fewer people see anime. I have to admit that if my daughter's hadn't convinced me to watch Attack On Titan I would never have watched an anime series. Through that I was introduced to anime movies and other forms of anime. If they had not convinced me to watch some with them so we could talk about it I would never have seen any. This is not because I have a bias but simply because I had never really heard of anime and had no frame of reference for it. Spirited Away is a beautiful movie that truly is an experience. I liked Howl's Moving Castle. I have Princess Nonoke and Graveyard of the Fireflies on my list. Akira is on my "maybe" list, the trailers just don't appeal to me; not because they are anime but because the content of the trailer is not appealing. Period. Give it another generation or two of everyone being introduced to anime and whatever comes after anime as a matter of course; part of the life experience that includes Snow White by Disney and Toy Story by Pixar and Curse Of The Were Rabbit by DreamWorks and Whatever Comes Next by Whomever Comes Next. Give it time...

    Of course it's most popular how else can you quantify a "best" movie. You can't it's not possible. No one watched the Japanese movies so they don't win. It's really that simple. But also in money made they beat them So there's that.

    Why is there so much complaining about a fun movie bracket that nobody can truly say one movie is better. It's all subjective just cause your movie that nobody saw didn't win don't whine about it inform your friends make them watch it remember this is all for fun
