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've got a Baby Ruth in my coat pocket somewhere... just waiting to eat it. Maybe I'll put in a blender on puree.

    Admire bryan singer story telling, not easy if you introducing a large cast.. As someone who do not know anything about x-men lore or identify himself as superhero geek.. His x-men 2000 film grab my interest on the series.. Still remember that powerful opening scene, the nazi concentration camp.. really set the theme of the series.. Found some of the other superhero movies.. Too comical for my taste still,.. Will see this movie on the first day of opening..

    1) Daredevil was ten years ago, and its problems were the director and script writers' fault. 2) Maybe but look at James Bond and hell even Batman throughout the years, people will get over it. 3) I want to tell you to check out the Town and Hollywoodland to see him act well, but you'd seem too hell bent to ever change your mind.
