Ben Mendelsohn May Get A Role In STAR WARS: ROGUE ONE

There’s no way he’d be playing a good guy.

If you want a gross, jerky, asshole in your movie you probably have a lot of character actors to choose from. One of the rising names in that pile belongs to Ben Mendelsohn, who you may know from Killing Them Softly, The Dark Knight Rises, and the “That shit can’t be a real name” list on my autocorrect.

The big rumor now is that Mendelsohn may join the cast of Star Wars: Rogue One. We know very little about the film as it is, so any details on what his character would be, other than the notion that it would be a major role, only come in joke form at this point. But knowing the guy’s resume, he’s probably not playing a very nice person.

Mendelsohn would be joining the only certain cast member, Felicity Jones, in a movie that might be about bounty hunters stealing the Death Star plans. Star Wars: Rogue One will be directed by Gareth Edwards, which is pretty much all I needed to hear.
