Adam Driver Apparently Your New Darth Vader
Well, despite his brayed pleas not to go to outer space, it looks like Adam Driver is headed to Star Wars. According to Variety, the dark Sith lord of Girls is the first cast member being added to Episode VII. Negotiations and scheduling aren't yet closed, but Driver is apparently "close to signing on," and "a deal should be finalized in the coming days." After nearly getting the role of the Man of Steel sequel's Lex Luthor, he'll yet get to play a big franchise villain, as his part is said to be "in the vein of iconic Star Wars villain Darth Vader." But he must also be an alien or something though... right?
