Rumor: Benedict Cumberbatch Ditching Trek for Star Wars Episode 7?

First J.J. Abrams, now Cumberbatch! Even Taylor Swift has better luck than Star Trek at keeping a man!

Comrades! It is I, El Presidente, reporting from inside a chemical weapons facility in Syria. Why? It's the last place Obama is ever going to look for me!

Today, my friends, I have a hot rumor from the always churning Star Wars rumor mill. Film Chronicles is reporting that Benedict Cumberbatch will be the subject of the big casting announcement rumored to be coming from Disney and J.J. Abrams about Star Wars Episode 7. No word on who Cumberbatch will play, but we know from all the other unsubstantiated rumors that the movie will feature the entire original cast, the cast of at least six different extended universe novels, the children and grandchildren of Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, and Princess Leia, the return of Darth Vader, and multiple character played by Joseph Gordon-Levitt!

Rumors on top of rumors! It's like a five layer chocolate rumor cake and this is the gooey, scooptastic filling oozing out of every bite and making my beard all wet and sticky! Yum!

Cumberbatch recently announced that he would be leaving Guillermo Del Toro's Crimson Peak, which is filming around the same time (or maybe he was never in it, and that was just a rumor too!), and of course Abrams just used him in Star Trek: Into Darkness, so the story is at least plausible. Also, Film Chronicles must have a very high score in the game of Hollywood gossip, since this one has been picked up by major outlets like the Huffington Post and IGN.

Does that mean it will be true? Who the hell knows, comrades?! My plan is to just keep reporting on all of them, then go back and delete the articles that turned out not to be true. I'll be batting a thousand, my friends, and all the Google cache results in the world will never prove me wrong!

About the Author - El Presidente

El Presidente gave up his position as President and Prime Minister of Cuba, as well as First Secretary of Cuba's Communist Party, in 2008 in order to concentrate on his true love: Hollywood gossip reporting. Forming the rumor website Cubano Review, El Presidente built a name for himself based on over THREE DOZEN industry credited trade scoops. Unfortunately, capitalist American trade embargoes have rendered unreachable from within the United States, forcing El Presidente to syndicate his articles to The Outhouse, which flies under the radar of the American oligarchy thanks to most leaders assuming it is a scat porn site, which, to be fair, is basically true.
