Earlier this week, it was rumored that Benedict Cumberbatch was cast in Star Wars: Episode VII, presumably as the villain. Now, the actor's representative clears up the fan speculation and shuts down all hopes for a Cumberbatch-Jedi or Sith.
That doesn't mean, however, that we can't dream about it. Which role would Cumberbatch have been perfect for? Vote below!
Meanwhile, read what Benedict's agent told:
The British actor is not reteaming with his “Star Trek Into Darkness" director on J.J. Abrams’ foray into the “Star Wars” universe, Cumberbatch’s rep confirmed to the News.
“There is no truth to the rumour Benedict has been cast in Star Wars,” a spokesperson for the 37-year-old actor told the News. “I think the rumours are circling because JJ and Benedict have just recently had a wonderful time working together on Star Trek .”
