With all the drama surrounding Star Wars lately we haven’t really heard much as far as the final installment in the trilogy Star Wars: Episode IX. Well it looks like we finally will be getting a little bit of information thanks to our friends over at Variety who have found out a little bit of casting news for the upcoming movie.
It is being reported that Keri Russell whom many know from movies such as Dawn of the Planet of the Apes Mission or Impossible III. Most recently she just finished her long stint on the extremely popular TV show The Americans. What is interesting about this casting is that this will not be the first time that Keri Russell has worked with J.J. Abrams before. As you may recall, Abrams directed Mission Impossible III which Russell starred along side Tom Cruise in. Nothing is known about the role besides that it apparently calls for action-heavy fight scenes so who knows if she will be apart of the Resistance, The First Order, or maybe something else!
So what do you think about this casting? Are you ready for Keri Russell to join the galaxy far, far away? Let us know what you think in the comments below!
