Monday, January 20, 2014

FINALLY, we have some confirmed news from the man himself...

"J.J. Abrams says the script for Star Wars Episode VII is complete, and confirms that he's talked with Breaking Bad actor Jesse Plemons about a role.

"We're working really hard and we've got our script and we're in deep prep," Abrams told TheWrap. "Full steam ahead, y'know."

Abrams spoke Sunday at the Television Critics Association summer press tour, where he's promoting his new NBC series, Believe. He confirmed that Plemons is among the actors he's speaking with, and expressed surprise about the reports of his talks with the actor.

"He is one of the actors that we've talked to, yeah," Abrams said. "But, you know. It's not often that I read about actors that I'm going to be meeting … that I get to read articles about actors who are going to come in. And so I get to see someone and say, 'Oh, I read that I'm going to see you.' ...It's usually agents talking to people about what's happening. It's a lot of noise."
