Aussie actor Joel Edgerton, a versatile thesp who cut his teeth on the small-screen before moving onto bigger feature fare like “Animal Kingdom” and “The Thing”, looks to return to TV.
According to an oft-reliable onliner, Edgerton will be reprising her role as Owen Lars – from the “Star Wars” prequels – for the upcoming Ewan McGregor-starring Old Ben series.
MTV’s Josh Horowitz posted a tweet saying: “Caught up with Joel Edgerton today. I have almost no doubt based on his coy evasiveness that he will be in the Obi Wan Disney+ series. I’ve seen many an actor playfully evade. I’m placing a big bet that Owen will be back.”
Edgerton can soon be seen in “The King”, which opens next week.
