John Noble on Star Wars Episode 7 Rumors.

Few weeks ago an Australian radio station started a rumor that John Noble is considered for a role in Star Wars Episode 7. Now IGN got a chance to speak with the actor and asked him about his thoughts on the upcoming movie…

IGN: I know that you’d debunked those Star Wars rumors, but is it funny for you to hear things like that? And think about how these rumors got started?

Noble: Yeah, I was going an interview with a fella from Empire Magazine and he told me that he started the rumor. He said that when he found out that J.J. [Abrams] was doing the movie that he’d done up a list about why J.J. was the right person to do Star Wars, and one of the reasons he gave was that he’d use John Noble. [Laughs]

IGN: That’s funny. You know, it’s interesting though, sometimes these rumors get started and then things happen. There was an Internet rumor that Mark Wahlberg was going to be in Transformers 4, when he wasn’t, and it gave Michael Bay an idea and now Wahlberg is in the movie.

Noble: Really? I mean I’d love to do Star Wars. That would just be epic doing something like that. And it’s not beyond the realm of possibility. I have a terrific relationship with J.J. Abrams and Bad Robot, I really do. So it’s not beyond the realm of possibility. It’s awhile away yet.

IGN: Well you’ve already been a part of a grand-scale fantasy franchise, Lord of the Rings, why not science fiction? I know you love the complex, rich characters, but it also must be pretty attractive to be a part of these enormous franchises.

Noble: Well, I mean Star Wars. If you’re going to do one, do Star Wars. I mean seriously, if you’re going to pick one to do, do that one. Because that’s basically a cultural revolution. It reset pop culture in some ways. So if I had to choose one, it would be that one.

    He is a tremendously good actor. In Fringe his presence alone held the series through some relativaly boring seasons. In LOTRO he portayed a difficult character quite impressively and now that I think about it, I could accept him as an aged Skywalker or even an Organa highborn diplomat. In many ways he can fill the role of the new Evil the storyline of Episode 7 must have. His voice alone is equal in depth and epicness to Christopher Lee’s and he has played the “bad guy” enough times to ensure pure awesomenes.

    I just hope the new movie measures up to the expectations which by the way are pretty low. My initial feeling however is that Disney can afford the best of everything, so not why quality actors like Noble?

    Abdullah a jusqu’ici r茅ussi 脿 convaincre beaucoup de ses citoyens d’ob茅ir aux diktats de vivre pour Dieu, roi et le pays. Mais lui et la coterie qui l’entoure ont peu 脿 offrir ces Jordaniens qui d茅sirent une plus grande voix dans la politique et les diff茅rentes approches de la gouvernance. Dans quelle mesure le palais et ses alli茅s peuvent continuer 脿 gouverner une population hargneux tout en apaisant soutiens ext茅rieurs est la question cruciale qui fa莽onne la dynamique politique 脿 court terme en Jordanie.
