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 can see him retiring Wolverine after W3 but as stated - HJ is still RIPPED. He does some serious workouts to play Logan and has the body to prove it. If they cast someone younger to play him after W3 then they had better search long and hard because he is one tough act to follow as Logan!

    okay, i took the bait of the Teaser for the new Bond movie, and I am hooked. Bond seems to have a secret link to Spectre, This will be interesting. I love the way the new recycling of Bond stories have developed from the first Craig adaptation and reinventing of the role. Guess I am onboard to continue to be a person that has never missed a Bond movie. From when I first saw Dr. No and From Russia With Love on a double feature in the 60's as a teenager I have been hooked and still am.
