The Breaking Bad star was at the SAG awards and briefly talked about the recent rumors that he has been considered for a major role in the new Star Wars movie...
"No," answered the "Breaking Bad" star when I asked if there was any truth to those recent reports that he's being eyed for a role in J.J. Abrams' "Episode VII." "Yeah, I think it's just one of those crazy rumors."
So is he on the level? Who can say? One thing's for sure: he wasn't at the SAG Awards to talk about "Star Wars" but about his role as sociopathic kid-killer Todd in "Breaking Bad," which took home the award for Best Ensemble in a Drama Series at the big show.
Well the denial in Hollywood these days is something normal and really this doesn't mean anything. Still it's good to hear his opinion.
And speaking about the Episode 7 cast here's another tease from Latino Review about a possible contender for a role in the movie:
We did come across a hot new STAR WARS rumor!

The full list of nominees from the SAG awards is this (without the winners):
He said new rumor so we could remove the names of Chiwetel Ejiofor and Michael Fassbender which were mentioned before. So who could it be?
By the way there was a rumor on the web that Judi Dench is playing a character in her next movie which name again starts with "M". Some people immediately speculated that it could be Mon Mothma. I highly doubt it cause she is considered to have "passed away peacefully on Chandrila 24 ABY" but still there you have it.
And Jennifer Lawrence was very often mentioned by the fans. And as she said, she wouldn't mind playing Han Solo. :)
