John Boyega (Among Other Actors) Up for Star Wars Lead

While I didn't think much of Attack the Block (I give it a 6 out of 10) I did think John Boyega, a young Denzel Washington clone, did pretty good for what he was given. I'm intrigued to see that he is up for the lead in the new trilogy.

While I don't blame J.J. Abrams entirely for the many flaws of the new Star Trek films - Orci, Kurtzman, Lindendorf I'm looking at you! - and I didn't think much of Super 8, I am still looking forward to seeing what Abrams is going to do with the new Star Wars films. He - Abrams - is working with Lawrence Kasdan, who scripted the near-perfect Empire Strikes Back, so he is off to a good start.
