Rumor: Jonathan Rhys Meyers to star in Episode VII?

By: Dominic Jones

Latino Review is reporting that Jonathan Rhys Meyers is in negotiations to star in Star Wars Episode VII.  Meyers is best known for his television work on the Tudors.  Meyers is also set to play the title character on NBC's Dracula.  Initial speculation is that Meyers will play Luke Skywalker's son in Episode VII, although, as Lightsaber Rattling points out, he is considerably older than Mark Hamill and Hayden Christensen were when they were cast in the lead role of their respective trilogies. 

It seems a bit too soon for there to be any casting announcements outside of the big three.  Remember that director JJ Abrams just wrapped up his work on Star Trek: Into Darkness and likely is just beginning to really sink his teeth into Episode VII and thus hasn't really had time to begin casting.  It seems unlikely that any casting would take place without Abrams approval.
