    I'm guessing he'll probably play a droid of some kind. :p

    Please keep in mind that it's not necessarily OK to just come into the NSA forum and post all the news being discussed in the SA forum.

    Not saying that this particular example is a huge spoiler, but everyone has a different line on what constitutes a spoiler, and the NSA forum exists for a reason.

    This is definitely good news. While it's hardly unexpected, it at least shows that they're on track.

    When Lucas had a certain cast of characters appear in all six films, I'd like to believe that he did that with a meaning. Hopefully, next in line is 3PO. And we can hope Obi-Wan and Anakin somehow return in their ghostly presence. If those characters, in addition to the Big 3 will be back, I'll have no reservations about casting. Until then, I'm not worried.

    OK, we've retitled this thread to repurpose it into a general thread for discussion of all confirmed casting news and announcements for the No Spoilers Allowed forum. Everything related to actual/confirmed casting must go in this thread. No standalone threads with actor or character names in the title are allowed here; this isn't the Spoilers Allowed forum. So as the thread title here says, open at your own risk if you consider casting news to be a potential spoiler.

    So who will play R2 this time? Tom Hanks? Daniel Day-Lewis?

    DDL would probably stop eating human food and start taking oil baths to get into character.

    I have it on the highest authority that Mr. DDL no longer wishes to be known as Daniel Day-Lewis, but during the course of production he is to be referred to as R2-D2, Artoo-Detoo, R2 or Beboobeep, which in R2's language apparently means R2-D2. Only DDL would know this; the guy's a pro.

    ...oh, and I'm sorry to report, but as of this moment DDL is no longer playing R2, as it seems he just attempted to fly using R2's...err..."his" thrusters...and well...CGI will be taking over the role from here on in.

    First gut reaction: Good job making the new generation more gender-balanced than the old one, Disney!

    I'm intrigued by them bringing Serkis on board. That should be interesting.

    I'm trying to avoid seeing this but I've already seen two names already, including the one in the post just above mine. I thought this would be considered a spoiler.
    This is it. It's happening. Now is the time to see how strong you are in keeping spoiler-free. This is the moment you've all been waiting for. Stabilize your ear deflectors. Watch for enemy spoilers.

    I'm fine with this information and I'll probably read the names of the characters these actors are playing as well as the planets the movie is set on.

    Upon reading the casting news, two actors in particular (outside of the obvious) inspired this response:

    I was thinking that maybe Max von Sidow might be playing Obi-Wan's force ghost. Thoughts?
