Daniel Day-Lewis is the latest big name actor to be linked to the upcoming "Star Wars: Episode 7," while 19-year-old actress Saoirse Ronan has confirmed she has read for a part, according to TotalFilm.com.
Ronan was nominated for a best supporting actress Oscar for her work in 2007's "Atonement." But before everyone gets too excited, Ronan said regarding reading for the part, "so has everyone."
I haven't. I'd make a great Klingon.
Ronan didn't specify what role she read for. Rumors have suggested the plot will rely heavily on the stories of Han, Leia and Luke, though director J.J. Abrams is keeping a tight lid on the details.
The latest big rumor comes from El Mayimbe from Latino Review -- a site that has produced lots of fairly accurate news regarding "Star Wars." The latest story says the actor was spotted having lunch with George Lucas and Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy.
