Adam Driver Nearly Signed to Play the Villain in ‘Star Wars: Episode VII’

Adam Driver
According to the Variety article here, Adam Driver (PeekYou profile here), of HBO‘s Girls is “close to signing on to play the villain” in Disney‘s and director J.J. Abrams’ (PeekYou profile hereStar Wars: Episode VII.

The delay in finalizing this deal has apparently arisen from concerns over potential scheduling conflicts between not just this film and the upcoming season of Girls, but subsequent films and seasons as well (both properties, obviously, expected to be ongoing concerns for some time). All of that has now been sorted, however, and a deal will soon be inked to find Driver playing the flick’s main baddie; “in the vein of iconic ‘Star Wars’ villain Darth Vader.”

We love Driver, we like Abrams, we’re cautiously optimistic (to the degree that we’re invested at all).
