Despite rumors and reports of every actor in Hollywood auditioning for parts in J.J Abrams’ revival of the Star Wars saga, not a single official confirmation on any decisions has come from Disney or Lucasfilm.
At this point however, despite the denials of Harrison Ford, it seems rather clear that he, along with co-stars Carrie Fisher and Mark Hamill, are returning for as the three leads of the original trilogy. As for newcomers who will carry to torch forward, Benedict Cumberbatch of Sherlock Holmes fame, seems to be the most talked about name who some say is already locked for part.
Watch Ford and Cumberbatch adorably dodge the topic on this clip from BBC’s The Graham Norton Show.
Word has it that major announcements are imminent.
