Your Daily Dispatch of Celebrity Shenanigans
Let The “Star Wars” Casting Rumors Begin!: No official casting announcements have been made for the upcoming “Star Wars; Episode VII,” but that hasn’t stopped actors (and singers) from working their names into the mix of possibilities. Daniel Radcliffe is done with “Harry Potter,” and he’s looking for a possible new series. “Franchise mustn’t become a dirty word. If directors like J.J. Abrams and Joss Whedon keep doing what they’re doing, it won’t be. I’d love to be part of one again,” the actor said in a recent interview with Time Out. “Maybe not leading it: a nice supporting role. In ‘Star Wars?’ Yeah, that’d be awesome. That’d be crazy cool,” he added.
And that’s not the only “Star Wars” casting story making headlines. Britain’s The Sun claimed that Florence and the Machine singer Florence Welch is being considered for a role in “Episode VII.” “She has done some acting but it was her singing on stage that initially caught the eye. Almost every actress in Hollywood wants a role in the new movies but we are keen to cast people who are unexpected,” a source told the paper. “Florence is being considered for a major part that would turn her into an A-list actress overnight.”
