'Star Wars Episode VII' Close to Casting Its Male Lead

Five actors on the short list for the lead in Episode VII.

Two casting stories broke today: one on the final choices for casting the male lead in Star Wars Episode VII, the other for casting Dr. Doom in the Fantastic Four reboot.  One of these movies is more than likely to be terrible.  Guess which one the "crack" staff on this site decided to cover.

That is what happens when you allow former communist dictators to write your news instead of professionals.  Fortunately, Stoneman is on the job and has the details on the other story:


Variety is reporting a list of five actors have been narrowed down to take the male lead in Episode VII: Ed Speleers (Downton Abbey), Jesse Plemons (Friday Night Lights), John Boyega (Attack The Block), and theater actors Matthew James Thomas and Ray Fisher.  The chosen one will face off against Adam Driver (Girls) as the lead villain.

It isn't clear how the story will unfold due to the ever-changing script.  At one time Han and Leia's children were to be main characters, now rumored to be simply supporting cast after a rewrite.  Though it might cost views to some of our more rumor-mongering writers, I might recommend you not invest too much stock in story rumors until shooting is fully underway.  Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher and Harrison Ford are rumored to return for supporting roles in the film as well.

About the Author - Stoneman

Stoneman is the Chief of Standards and Practices for The Outhouse, and the biggest proponent of eliminating The Outhouse's snarky news initiative and returning journalistic integrity and corporate favor to the site. Stoneman abhors the shock blog antics of internet comics bad boys ThanosCopter, Jude Terror, GHERU, El Presidente, and Frankenstein: Former Agent of S.H.A.D.E., and doesn't really care for the less snarky reporters either, to be honest. Stoneman uses his position to keep the Outhouse writers in check and advance the objectives of the public relations departments of major comic book publishers.
