Rachel Hurd-Wood And Alex Pettyfer Being Eyed For Roles In STAR WARS: EPISODE VII?
LatinoReview seems to have a casting update concerning J.J. Abrams' Star Wars: Episode VII. They say that British actress Rachel Hurd-Wood (Perfume, Peter Pan) is currently reading (along with other actresses) for the role of Jania Solo, who is rumored to be one of the main characters of the new trilogy. It also looks like Alex Pettyfer could be in the mix as well possibly for the role of Ben Skywalker, son of Luke Skywalker. The role had been previously linked to Ryan Gosling who is currently now out of the mix. The site also claims that we'll see the return of Emperor Palpatine and Obi Wan as force ghosts.
