John Noble has been to the Fringe, but will he be a force in JJ. Abrams upcoming Star Wars Episode 7 movie?
Rumor has it that the Aussie actor is set to play the villain in the upcoming JJ. Abrams-directed Star Wars Episode VII.
According to the host of Melbourne radio show FM, Noble will play the main antagonist in the ongoing Star Wars saga (not the standalone movies):
“[I have] it on very [strong] authority that Australian actor John Noble will be appearing as the villain.”
Noble’s existing working relationship with JJ. Abrams’ production company Bad Robot and his ability to play heroes and villains, of which he has plenty of experience playing the various sides of Dr. Walter Bishop on the recently-concluded Fringe, would make him a solid choice in our opinion. Of course, it depends on the story and many other factors, but Abrams is known for keeping it in the family where possible, and as a rumor it’s an interesting one.
Still, this is only a rumor at this point as LuscasFilm and Disney have yet to confirm/deny.
Star Wars Episode VII hits theaters in 2015.
