5 Actors Dueling For the Lead In STAR WARS EPISODE 7

I don’t really care who Disney selects to star in their New Trilogy. Well, not now that we know Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, and Harrison Ford will return as the lead actors in Star Wars Episode 7.

Disney’s flirted with a few massive names over the past few years (Ryan Reynolds, Leo Dicaprio, etc) and a ton of smaller ones (Micahel B. Jordan, Zac Efron, etc.), but the recent list of possible candidates is even more obscure than before.

episode 7 lead actorsDownton Abbey’s Ed Speelers, Attack the Block star John Boyega, Jesse Plemons, theater actors Matthew James Thomas and Ray Fisher.

I have no idea who they are, either. Except for the crazy dude from Breaking Bad, that is. Everyone knows that little blond headed bitch. Well, that was a bit harsh. He is only an actor in a role, after all, but still… some wounds heal slow.

Again, I’ve no preference from among these five. Star Wars Episode 7 has secured the Original Cast, which hopefully means a ton of Grand Master Luke Skywalker badassery, and that’s enough for me. I’m talking Green Jedi Lightning, faster-than-Yoda lightsaber skills, and planet shaking Force pushes.

Although, it would be nice to see a well known actor in the lead role. Not a Leonoardo Dicaprio or Gosling type, mind you, but at least a familiar face. If it weren’t for the Fantastic Four reboot, in which Michael B. Jordan is cast, we could’ve seen that rising star as the lead.

I personally hope Zac Efron receives the call to the big leagues for this role. I don’t care what anyone says (fanboys be damned!), the dude’s a talent. Check out 17 Again! if you don’t believe me.
