Who the hell are those people? I don't recognize anyone besides Gollum and Ming the Merciless.

I'm thrilled that I don't know any of the new cast! That's what made the original Star Wars so great; most of the cast were relative unknowns. This is an excellent decision on J.J.'s part.

Do you think Ming will be a Sith?

Oh my god you're totally right.

Villain seems the obvious choice for Max Von Sydow, and he would be joining Peter Cushing and Christopher Lee in the bad guy roster -- but he's versatile enough to do wise old good guy, too.
