Gary Oldman Confirms He's in Talks for "Star Wars: Episode VII"

Posted: February 7th, 2014 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Gary Oldman Confirms HeSubmit Comment
Another day, another "Star Wars: Episode VII" rumor. But this time it's different, because Gary Oldman just confirmed that he was approached for a role in the new movie.

"They've called," Oldman said of the producers. "I'm more cynical about it now. I'll believe it when I'm on the plane home. The deal isn't done. But yeah, they've inquired."

As the actor pointed out. This is far from being a done deal. It's not clear what role Disney wants Oldman for, but an early casting call indicated that the studio was looking for "a 40-something military man" and " a seventy-something male, with strong opinions and tough demeanor."

"Star Wars: Episode VII" will be directed by JJ Abrams and is set to hit theaters on December 18th, 2015.

Has anyone in Hollywood NOT been contacted about Star Wars?? Anyway, I have no problem with this at all. If he is playing a villain role he will kill it with his brand of intensity or he could be as a mentor like Sirius in Harry Potter.

This is probably the only movie that I can think of that I'm even remotely looking forward to.

Everyting Gary Oldman touches turns to gold, the geezer is one of the best film actors out there right now so it's only good news that he's getting involved.

I could see him playing an imperial officer, those were usually british in the movies-he would fit right in.

Or he could be playing a sith lord a la vader and the emperor. Now that would be interesting.

My personal vote would be admiral thrawn from the timothy zahn trilogy. However im on the fence on whether or not he needs to be blue with the red eyes. It would look badass but might be too out there for the average viewer to handle on a main character, one shot crazy makeup character's are all over star wars but rarely a focus. Ya, you got guys in suits or cg characters but im not sure most people would go for thrawn blue and red eyes the whole movie and still take him seriously.

@vincere01
While I agree Star Wars should remain with human characters as the leads, it's both a good and bad thing but people are way more accepting of more extreme characters now in film. Otherwise, half the sh*t they throw out there wouldn't make a dime. You think "This is the End" would have gotten critical praise years ago? Hell no! That film is an over the top mess, but we delve in extremes now in film so it sold. PS...didn't like This is the End. Once again relied way too much on sex jokes and innuendos and basically draws out the story too damn much...you know whatever story that is suppose to be. Personally I feel like there is a beginning and an end...but then an episode of Big Brother gets flipped to midway through as they live in the house. LOL

Definitely would be a good cast for pretty much any established Imperial Officer. As far as him playing Thrawn I'm not against that idea but they have to keep him blue with red eyes. It's part of what makes that character so pivotal. In a culture of xenophobes Thrawn was so brilliant he was the only non-human to reach the rank of Admiral... plus he's Chiss which is another important race that would be easier to bridge into any future movies if Thrawn is kept true to his character.
