‘Star Wars’ casting rumor: Adam Driver set as villain, is this the twin, Jacen Solo

Adam Driver, best known for his character on HBO’s Girls, has reportedly been in talks to play a villain in J.J. Abrams’ anticipated film Star Wars: Episode VII.

There are no details regarding the role, but he will definitely be part of the Dark Side if the part if finalized.

So fans should be asking if this means Driver is a Sith Lord or the key role of Jacen Solo.

Jacen Solo is believed to be the key character in the Skywalker mythos as the next male to be tempted and fall to the Dark Side, becoming Darth Caedus. Jacen is the son of Han and Leia and his twin, Jaina also trains under their uncle Luke Skywalker.

While there is no reason to believe Abrams will follow the Star Wars mythology verbatim, the stories are rich with action, adventure and the similar cycle of redemption found in the previous films.

Original actors from the film, such as Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill, and Carrie Fisher are set to make an appearance, but there are no official announcements as of now.

Fisher recently confirmed production starting in the Spring so expect some confirmation on the cast to come soon.

Star Wars Episode VII is set for theaters December 19, 2015.
