I wish John Noble is the villain in Star Wars: Episode VII.

I wish John Noble is the villain in Star Wars: Episode VII.

There is a very sketchy rumor going around that John Noble could play the villain in Star Wars: Episode VII. I think it’s a bit too early for this level of casting to be going on, especially in that JJ may end up pushing the whole thing back. Also, the fact that JJ was involved in Fringe where John Noble up till recently resided is probably what lent to this rumor actually taking root when it’s most likely someone’s fan-casting.

That being said…

OH PLEASE YES GET JOHN NOBLE TO BE THE VILLAIN!

If you’ve not watched Fringe, you’re totally missing out. John Noble is literally one hell of an actor. Spoilers, but there are two Walters, one from two different universes. One is slightly drug addled, wouldn’t hurt a fly, that kind of thing. The other is ruthless, cold, and exacting. Both are compelling and sympathetic.

The man has acting chops which is why every award season for the past few years everyone is left scratching their heads wondering why he keeps getting snubbed.

With both Palpatine and Vader off the table for sequels, John Noble is exactly the kind of man you want to fill those shoes. He could bring a level of gravitas that would be as chilling as when Tarkin blew up Alderaan.

So, for my next wish Star Wars Geni!
