Star Wars adds Crystal Clarke and Pip Andersen to its casting line-up

Casting for a Star Wars film is a tricky thing, because it's mostly about choosing the right people over the popular ones.

Oscar Isaac to pick up Harrison Ford's slack in Star Wars: Episode VII?

Ever since Harrison Ford 's leg got Millennium Falcon'd, word has been swirling around about just how bad the damage was .
