Adam Driver is the new 'Star Wars' Villain


In the first bit of casting news on the new J.J. Abrams directed Star Wars movie (other than the fact that the original trio is coming back), Adam Driver has signed on to play the villain. The 30-year-old Girls star has been popping up in bit parts a lot recently, in movies like Frances Ha, Lincoln and Inside Llewyn Davis. I'm not surprised he's breaking through, as he was (and I'm sure still is) the very best thing about Lena Dunham's HBO series (if it hadn't been for him, I probably would have stopped watching it even sooner than I did). No news on what kind of part he's playing, so fans can only speculate (and they will of course) while Star Wars Episode VII is set to start filming this spring and is scheduled for release on Dec 15, 2015.
