    I really hope this is not just b.s., Bradley Cooper is my is my second most wanted actor for the ST right behind Michael Fassbender.

    Darth Fassbender. Yes, please. Now. No need to even change his name. Literally just call him "Darth Fassbender". Sounds Sith-ish enough.

    There is a rumor that I am in talks for Ep VII, but that one might be true.

    Yeah how did this schmuck survive the Machinima layoffs? Also since when does an out of context JJ quote, combined with a release date rumor, equal TOTEZ CONFIRMED RELEASE DATE DELAY!!!1 I hate lazy pop culture journalism. It just makes everyone testy when real sources report news.

    I never liked the fellow. He ruined A-Team. I loved that show in the 80s, just like I loved Star Wars.

    He'd make a good smuggler ala Han Solo from the OT, he's got comic timing, charisma, he's leading man material just like Ford.

    I like Bradley Cooper from his days as Will on Alias, but I'm not sure I see him fitting in Star Wars. With that said he has proven a greater range of ability in recent years and it could work.

    I for one think, even if this turns out true, a confirmation on any casting is probably months away. If we were guaranteed a 2015 release then we'd probably have something by the end of March, but where it looks more and more likely it will be 2016 I'm not expecting anything before summer.

    I could see him as a Han type, would not mind him in a SW movie.

    Odds are guys, it's not true. Machimina has a tendency to start rumors, and you can tell by the hyperactive moron in the video I posted it's nothing but thin air. I'm betting that Cooper is taking the Armstrong role, even though he publicly denied it (he wouldn't be the first to do so, McGregor and Star Wars for example). The only reason I posted it was because he defiantly did meet with JJ Abrams regarding a role in one of his upcoming films, though whether it's a film he's directing, writing, or producing no idea. Episode VII is just Abrams biggest project, not his only one.

    If Bradley Cooper defiantly met with JJ Abrams, I cannot imagine Abrams would ever hire him. What kind of director would be given the daunting task of helming Star Wars and allow a defiant actor to be part of the cast? Abrams will want people who actually listen to his direction... not defy him...

    Well, when stars defy the director, the director has to defy them back!

    JJ Abrams will punish Bradley Cooper's defiance by placing lens flare over his face in every scene in which he appears on camera.

    Does Star Wars need a Situation like this?

    Ask any of my female friends and they will say NO and add that he has date-rape face.

    He's inherited the vacancy left by Matthew McConaughey which is essentially just to play himself to varying degrees of his inherent douchey-ness to fit whatever role and take his shirt off. He's not a bad actor; he's not a good one either - same as his predecessor.

    I always think back to his appearance on Conan that also had Julia Louis-Dreyfuss (as the primary guest) and how both she and Conan would dryly make fun of him to his face and give each other these knowing looks because of not only how oblivious he was to what was happening, but also to how unaware he was to his own natural flavor of obnoxious and interpreting their smiles, laughter and quips as praise. Good actors aren't that dumb. He gets work because he's safe, not terrible, never challenged and appeals to the Midwest...until about a decade to a decade and a half goes by and the mass awareness of how average he actually has always been comes to fruition.

    He's basically Hollywood's current male January Jones.

    At first I was thinking he could maybe play Han and Lea's son but he is 37 now, I would think they would go a little younger

    First of all, I think that Khail or whatever is a douche. Anyone agree there?

    Secondly, his total denial of 2015 was based on nothing. Of course the story comes first. We all agree. BUT a definitive NO for 2015 has not been issued.

    Third, I think Bradley Cooper is the popcorn of acting. All fluff. And it takes a whole bag to fill you up. But I'm not totally against it. I just think this douche's reasoning that Cooper denied being up for the idiotic Armstrong idea automatically means he's up for Episode 7. I can't see BC as a Solo or Skywalker.

    Lastly, at least we have some rumors to discuss today between Bradley Pooper and the Yoda spinoff. :p
