I’m a little late with this tidbit, but Latino Review is reporting that actor Jonathon Rhys Meyers is in talks to take on a role in STAR WARS: EPISODE VII. Rhys Meyers is most well known for appearing in JJ Abrams’ Mission: Impossible III and the Showtime series, The Tudors (side note — he costarred in the film Velvet Goldmine with young Obi-Wan himself, Ewan McGregor). He can soon be seen as the title character in NBC’s upcoming series, Dracula (trailer posted after the jump). Whether or not this pans out remains to be seen. Expect a lot of rumors of this sort over the coming months and take ’em all with a grain of salt until confirmed by Lucasfilm or Abrams.
