...or you know, you could just do the common sense thing and wait to see the movie before you condemn it.

What am I saying? That's madness!

I would guess he's playing somebody's son, and that he kills his Papa in the third act.

Re: New Casting and Story Rumors re: EPISODE VII

After watching Hayden Christensen stumble through two consecutive films with the emoting of a William F. Buckley, Jr. saddled with jock itch I think we can handle Driver in whichever villainous role he's given. I'm giving him a chance.

We won't get to see him emote. He's playing 3p0 gone bad. Turns out that not getting droids memory wiped every so often does have it's down side.

I don't think Weaving and Driver were up for the same part.

He definitely looks like a villain.

Re: New Casting and Story Rumors re: EPISODE VII

Interesting casting choice. I've only seen him on a few episodes of Girls I watch - in which he is by far the best thing on that show (ironic that the male lead is the most interesting talent on a show called Girls about 4 girls).

It made me wonder if he might be a younger character who turns to the dark side?

It's possible that you are correct, however, I was basing my comment on this quote:

It was also said by Variety that Michael Fassbender & Hugo Weaving were being looked at for the same role; however, Driver suited the role more than the two actors.

I've been thinking they could even introduce a character ( it would have to be a long-lived one ) who supposedly lived through the Clone Wars and even interacted with Anakin and Obi-Wan in some incident. Then you could have a full-on flashback with the prequel actors reprising their roles in the flesh in a CW battle of some kind.
NO!

God NO!!!

ENOUGH

FUCKING

CLONE

WARS!!!!!!!!


FOR THE LOVE OF GOD!!!!!!!!!



Sorry but it's been nothing but fucking Clone Wars for about ten years now and I am SO over it!!!

Re: New Casting and Story Rumors re: EPISODE VII

I really need to come up with a Palpatine "I feel your anger" threadbomb. I might never actually use it ... but it'd be therapeutic to look on it once or twice an hour ...

Yeah - sorry to over-react - it's just it feels like Lucas has been pushing the CW down our throats for more than a decade.

It's DONE.
