It’s Downton Abbey vs Breaking Bad for the role of Jedi apprentice

Downton Abbey star Ed Speleers will be up against Breaking Bad‘s Jesse Plemons for the role of Jedi apprentice in the upcoming Star Wars movie.

The two well-known actors will be up against John Boyega, Ray Fisher and Matthew James Thomas for the coveted role in Star Wars: Episode VII.

It was accidentally revealed by Lena Dunham that her Girls co-star Adam Driver will play the villain in the movie, though she quickly backtracked saying, “I confirm nothing”.

The movie will be produced by J.J. Abrams and is said to star some of the cast of the original movies such as Harrison Ford and Mark Hamill.

Abrams is also said to be looking for a more “diversified” cast for lead roles.
