Ever since J.J Abrams took the directing gig of “Star Wars Episode VII”, we’ve had a ton of rumors. From a Yoda film to a young Han Solo film, there’s been a lot of rumors. One thing we haven’t heard is anything about Episode VII really. Now, a radio station is reporting that John Noble is up to play the villain in Episode VII. If you’re not familiar with the name, he played Dr. Walter Bishop in the TV show “Fringe”, which was produced by none other than Abrams himself.

Of course, hard to tell if there’s any truth behind this report. No plot details have been released by Disney or anyone. Michael Arndt is writing the script. But if it is true, I’d support the decision. Noble is a wonderful actor. And let’s face it. After “Revenge of the Sith” and Hayden Christensen, anyone would look good.
