Well, the time has come. We have entered into the casting phase of Star Wars: Oh Shit, JJ Abrams Now Has to Finish Something Instead of Just Introducing Things without Thinking Them Through?!
It begins with Keri Russell, Abrams’ Felicity pal. According to Variety, Russell is in early talks to join the film as “a female character” which will likely cause quite an uproar among the Star Wars community.
Time sneaks up to you, and believe it or not, this is going to start shooting at the end of the month. Between now and then, we can look forward to a couple other new cast members. Everyone start getting excited because the Episode IX train is about to start heating up.
