Rumor: Ben Kingsley Read for Episode VII?

He’s in next month’s Ender’s Game and everyone remembers his twist earlier this year as The Mandarin in Iron Man 3, but there’s a new rumor that Ben Kingsley has read for a role in Star Wars Episode VII.

It’s just a rumor right now, and they are seeing a huge number of actors for various roles as casting is well underway. However, Kingsley would fit with the earlier casting call where they were looking for an older actor around his 70s for a role.

Despite some poor decisions like appearing in an Uwe Boll movie, Kingsley would still bring a level of gravitas to Episode VII with an Oscar under his belt for Best Actor. Casting him in the movie could be seen as similar to having Alec Guinness in the original Star Wars…
