Actor Jason Flemying, known for his roles in “X:Men : First Class” and “Layer Cake”, may be up for “Star Wars Episode VII”.
The 47-year-old Brit posted the following photo on his Instagram account, strongly suggesting he’s been offered a part – or is in the least, auditioning – for a role in the J.J Abrams directed movie.
It makes sense someone like Flemying would be in with a shot, he’s not only a damn fine actor – and one not to shy away from physical roles – but he’s based in the same vicnity as the film’s shooting locale.
Meanwhile, we’ve also got solid word that Michael B.Jordan isn’t the only “Chronicle” star up for a role in the movie; Jordan’s co-star, Australian actor Alex Russell, has also auditioned for the movie. One can only assume Russell, whose other credits include “Carrie” and “Wasted on the Young”, is up for one of the film’s new young hero parts.
But let’s not add Flemying or Russell to IMDB just yet, after all, they’re one of merely hundreds that are seemingly auditioning or meeting about the 2015 blockbuster.
