Rumor: WWE Wrestler Sheamus to Play Darth Vader in Episode VII

File this one under the "Huh?" category.  The Irish Mirror is reporting that WWE Wrestler Sheamus was on set on Skillig Michael this past weekend, where it is believed that JJ Abrams was shooting scenes for Star Wars Episode VII (possibly with Mark Hamill).  Sheamus has previously portrayed Darth Vader in promotional videos.  Sheamus tweeted an image of the article saying, "I cant confirm that i wont not be reprising role of Darth Vader in ... I hope that's clear @IrishMirror ;)"
For the record, I sincerely doubt this will happen (it was just too funny not to report).  The Mirror is a British tabloid and British tabloids have a tendency not to be true.  Still, anything is possible.
