Adam Driver To Play Villain in Star Wars Episode VII

Star Wars Episode VII rumors have been flying everywhere over the last several months and for the most part TMIAJ stays away from posting them, but when Variety posts something, there is likely some truth behind it.  Variety is citing sources that all though a deal isn't done, actor Adam Driver is very close to signing on to play a villain in Lucasfilm and Disney's upcoming Star Wars Episode VII directed by J.J. Abrams.  With filming set to begin in April more casting should be announced soon and a confirmation of Driver should be forthcoming!  Star Wars Episode VII hits theaters in 2015!
