Rumor: Jason Isaacs & David Oyelowo To Play The Inquisitor & Agent Kallus In 'Rebels'

By: Benjamin Hart

Warning: Possible minor spoilers ahead!

After Making Star Wars dropped an assortment of details about Star Wars Rebels earlier, has revealed their own batch of information. As we previously reported, they confirm that Obi-Wan Kenobi, voiced by James Arnold Taylor, will appear in the pilot episode, and TFN adds that Agent Kallus will feature prominently in the first two episodes as the primary antagonist. What's really interesting is who they say might be voicing both Kallus and the much teased Imperial Inquisitor.

According to a TFN source who claims to have worked on the series and seen the pilot episode(s), Jason Isaacs will voice the Inquisitor and David Oyelowo will voice Agent Kallus. Isaacs is best know for playing Lucius Malfoy in the Harry Potter film series and Oyelowo is set to appear in 2015's Jurassic World. Last year Oyelowo was rumored to be a part of Rebels cast along with since-confirmed cast members Freddie Prinze Jr., Vanessa Marshall, Taylor Gray and Steve Blum. He was also said to have been cast in Star Wars Episode VII, possibly playing the same character in both the film and the series.

Along with the casting news, the source confirms that the pilot/premiere is indeed two "regular" episodes together.

As always, this information is merely rumor, thus unconfirmed, and should be taken with a grain of salt.
