That Guy We Thought Might Be Nightwing Is Now Probably a Sith


Yes, it-boy Adam Driver, known for playing the buff-but-mumbly guy in such films as Inside Llewyn Davis and TV shows like Girls, and once talked about for the Dick Grayson role in Superman Vs. Everybody We Can Think of, is apparently now in final talks to play the main villain in Star Wars Episode VII, described as a Darth Vader type.

I’m not inclined to say that’s great news, though Driver has been fine for the roles I’ve seen him in. The saving grace will be if he really is a literal Darth Vader type, because then we won’t have to see his face or hear his voice, neither of which comes off as anything but awkward most of the time.

I kinda like how he looks in Maul tattoos, though.
