[Rumor] Jesse Plemons sought for Episode VII

It's getting closer and closer to filming for Star Wars: Episode VII and with that we are bound to get some more casting and plot rumors. The latest is that Jesse Plemons, most recently known as Todd in Breaking Bad, is being eyed for a male lead as the offspring of Luke Skywalker.

I want to make it clear that he has not been cast yet. The reports are that he has been called back for another audition and/or screen test with J.J. Abrams. This does not mean he will be cast and it doesn't mean he won't be. This is all pretty much blowing smoke at this point, but I figured it was worth mentioning for the sheer fact that he would be a pretty believable as a Skywalker. Depending on the picture Plemons does resemble Mark Hamill a bit. However, I think if this role is supposed to be a teenage role and will potentially last three movies that he is a bit old. He will be 26 this year and I'm not trying to say he looks old for his age, but he definitely doesn't have a baby face. It won't be believable that he is a young teenager.

I bet we will get more info on Episode VII in the next couple of months regardless. They can't keep people waiting forever.

What do you think about Jesse Plemons potentially being cast in Star Wars? Is he a good fit or a bad fit?
