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.
