Star Wars: Episode VII Casts Benedict Cumberbatch?

Rumour-mongers on standby, but there are claims Benedict Cumberbatch will be re-teaming with JJ Abrams, for Star Wars: Episode VII.

The mills observe that at 37-years old the actor is outside the age-range of the Solo/Skywalker children revealed in the casting notes, so could he in be in line for a red lightsabre as another JJ villain? In a previous interview with Total Film, he said “I’ve already asked him if I can be a lightsabre and we’re in talks – about whirring sounds and the rates for the lights and everything [laughs]. “I thought, ‘Yeah, I grew up with them,’ and I just looked recently at when they were released and now I’m like, ‘No, I didn’t grow up with them, I was born with them.’ They were a huge part of my background, and my upbringing.” “I was much more connected to [Star Wars] as a kid, in the way that a lot of kids are because it’s immediate storytelling, very simple – a beautifully, outrageously simple narrative in a way – and a wonderful three-act melodrama, opera. And I loved them. I really, really loved those films and I always wanted to be Han Solo. Everything Harrison Ford did I just thought was the coolest thing ever.”

Fingers crossed on that on!
