This guy might be in Star Wars VII

From iwatchstuff, The Tudors star Jonathan Rhys Meyers is rumored to be the first newcomer to join Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, and Harrison Ford in seeing if people still enjoy space battles. Latino Review claims the actor "already has" a part in J.J. Abrams' Star Wars: Episode VII, bringing him back to his Mission: Impossible III director and a universe where Obi-Wan forces you to search your feelings. There's not yet word on what that the role may be, so your guess is as good as mine. Or maybe better, because my guess is newly-svelte Wicket.

In Wikipedia he's listed as "Prince Isolder" in episode VII. I like him. He was great in Velvet Goldmine and already a billion times better than Hayden f'in Christensen.

I don’t think Hayden Christensen and Natalie Portman get enough flack for their roles in the prequels. They are every bit as terrible as Jar Jar and Jake Lloyd IMO. I watched Episodes I-III again recently and they were even worse than I’d remembered. Just thinking about it makes me want to punch faces. The part that enrages me the most is that insufferable picnic scene. Anakin first reveals his evil nature to Amidala and she responds with “You’re making fun of me.” AAARRGGHGH!! !!

ANAKIN: We need a system where the politicians sit down and
discuss the problem, agree what's in the best interests of
all the people, and then do it.

PADME: That is exactly what we do. The trouble is that
people don't always agree. In fact, they hardly ever do.

ANAKIN: Then they should be made to.

PADME: By whom? Who's going to make them?

ANAKIN: I don't know. Someone.


ANAKIN: Of course not me.

PADME: But someone.

ANAKIN: Someone wise.

PADME: That sounds an awful lot like a dictatorship to me.

A mischievous little grin creeps across his face.

ANAKIN: Well, if it works...

PADME stares at ANAKIN. He looks back at her, straight
faced, but can't hold back a smile.

PADME: You're making fun of me!

She should have responded with “You don’t actually believe in dictatorships, do you? I mean, you’re not that fucking stupid or evil, right? But no. She responds with “You’re making fun of me.” HUH???
