That means other actors are continuing to read and test for roles in what might just be the movie of the century, or a gargantuan disappointment. Today, Latino Review brings us two more actors who have reportedly gone in and read from the script.
First up is Fruitvale Station's Michael B. Jordan, who is said to be a favorite of J.J. Abrams. The actor met personally with the director, but that is all that is known about his participation in the project. Michael B. Jordan is one of Hollywood's up and coming talents, and has been tied to the role of Johnny Storm in 20th Century Fox's reboot Fantastic Four.
It is not known whom he could be playing, but some speculate that if they are going the kid route, why can't he be the offspring of one Lando Calrissian? We know that Billy Dee Williams is one of the original cast members said to be turning, Han Solo's Son needs a friend, and his daughter needs a love interest. Could this be it?
While its not know if he is up for the same role, break out star David Oyelowo, last seen in this summer's Lee Daniels' the Butler, has also reportedly gone in and read. Again, no character details have been released at this time, and neither actor fits the that went out in June.
Do either of these actors excite you? Should Lando's kid be a part of the action?
