We have a new Star Wars Episode VII casting rumor for you. Latino Review's El Mayimbe reports that The Tudors star Jonathan Rhys Meyers is "in talks" to play a starring role in Episode VII. In addition to The Tudors, a historical fiction series that ran from 2006 to 2010, Meyers is also known for his co-starring role in 2006's Mission Impossible: III, directed by -- wait for it -- J.J. Abrams.
As always, nothing is confirmed until Lucasfilm says it is. File Latino Review's story under out-of-the-blue casting rumors for sure.
