Episode VII: Alex Pettyfer Comments on Potential Casting
Reported by Justin on 14 Feb 2014 13:02

When the subject of starring in director J.J. Abrams' highly anticipated Episode VII was approached, actor Alex Pettyfer (who had been previously rumored to be taking part in an audition) recently offered up these comments.

“Wouldn’t that be exciting?” he says of working for George Lucas and J.J. Abrams. “All my peers have been rumoured.” He admits there’s been “reaching out,” a strange process where “friends of friends and acquaintances kind of gauge your interest through your manager.

“Again, I haven’t been asked to play anyone. It’s under wraps, so nobody knows what they’re being considered for. I don’t know if I was going to play R2D2 or who.” (The enduring rumour is Pettyfer would play Luke Skywalker’s son).
