It’s been a while since we’ve heard anything really juicy from the Star Wars Episode VII rumor mill but now that we’re all stuffed with holiday turkey, you’d better start making room for more rumors. According to ComicBook.com and Jedi News, American Horror Story star Taissa Farmiga is the newest name to be rumored for the J.J. Abrams film.
Now, no one has been cast in Star Wars Episode VII yet, not even the original trilogy cast members that have long been rumored to be involved. But while we haven’t gotten any official word yet on casting, the time is nearing that the news will be coming fast and hard.
Filming is expected to start in early to mid 2014, which means Abrams, Lucasfilm and Disney are going to need to start filling out the cast publicly if they haven’t already done so privately. But while this latest rumor places Farmiga in the casting rumor mill, it’s not a concrete report and like everything else involved with casting rumors, needs to be taken with a fistful of salt and then some.
But we’re ether getting to the point where these actresses are sounding good because they’re good choices or we’ve just literally run through every name that anyone will look good in the roles in our minds.
Only one of those is a good thing and it begs the question of whether or not Star Wars Episode VII is taking too much time to find the right cast.
