Jonathan Rhys Meyers: First Cast in Star Wars Sequel?

We know you’re all excited to see Jonathan Rhys Meyers in Dracula this fall, but you might be able to see the Tudors star in a very different role in 2015! Rumor has it that he might be the first new character cast in one of the upcoming Star Wars sequels, which would put him with iconic actors from the series Carrie Fisher and Harrison Ford.

We’ve mostly seen Jonathan in period roles, like King Henry VIII in
The Tudors, his upcoming titular role in Dracula, and even the glam-rock throwback tribute Velvet Goldmine. Even though the Star Wars franchise takes place a long time ago, the far, far away galaxy setting gives it more of a futuristic feel than the kind of environment where we usually see Jonathan.

So we might get to see Jonathan as a historical babe
and a space babe? Be still our hearts!
