No offer has been made to Benedict Cumberbatch for Star Wars: Episode VII

09.06.2013

What's up, Cumberbitches?!

And for those of you who like a little class-- CumberCollective.

To all of you ladies and gentlemen, you may feel a little saddened to hear that those rumors about Benedict Cumberbatch taking a role in STAR WARS: EPISODE VII are just rumors. While promoting THE FIFTH ESTATE, the actor told Access Hollywood this:

"This is the simple truth. J.J. [Abrams] and I have worked together before. I would love to work with him again. No offer has been made. That is that. And that is that."

That is that. While he would make a nice addition to any STAR WARS film, do you think that Abrams would want him for both franchises? Also, would they want to make him another bad guy? I know, we've done the "is he or isn't he?" dance with casting Cumberbatch in a sci-fi film before but for now we have to squash this one until something more official comes up.

I love the idea of Cumberbatch as a Sith Lord, but especially with it being JJ's very next movie after Star Trek, we really don't need to see a "Star Wars into Darkness." I still wouldn't mind Benedict popping up in a different role in Episode VII tho!

Even though he would be great in any role he was casted in, I would rather not see anyone from the new Star Trek films cross over into the new Star Wars films. It would be too weird.

Even seeing Simon Pegg in a new Star Wars film would be awkward to see.

If they ever rebooted Die Hard, he would make an awesome villain.

He also said he wasn't playing Khan, remember?

We'll know for sure in the coming weeks which of these rumors have been true or total bullshit.

Star Trek, The Hobbit...

With such high-profile villainous roles, and now the rumors of him as a Sith in Episode VII, I'd hate for Cumberbatch to become type-casted. He's a phenomenal actor, evidenced by Sherlock and a few other movies such as Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy. I'd rather him not be connected to Star Wars and go on for even more awesome roles in the future that can really show off his impressive range of skills, not just as the bad guy.
