Adam Driver Set For “Darth Vader Role” in New ‘Star Wars’

+

Finally! A story that will interest both New York hipster d-bags and pathetic sci-fi geeks! (Just kidding. I am also interested in this story and I am neither of those things, except for the first one.) Adam Driver, who plays Lena Dunham’s loveable log of a bf on Girls, is reportedly in final talks to play the main villain in the new Star Wars movie, according to Variety. Driver, who’s already attached to star in Martin Scorsese’s next film Silence, reportedly beat out actors like Michael Fassbender and Hugo Weaving for the part. The only roadblock now is working around his Girls schedule, not just for season four, but beyond, since Driver is likely to be a part of the next three instalments of J.J. Abrams’ new vision. The script for Star Wars Episode VII is obviously being kept top secret, but his character is said to be “in the vein of Darth Vader.” That’s a shame, since Adam Driver’s face is obviously his best part.
