Lupita Nyong’o Being Considered For ‘Star Wars VII’ Lead

Monday, March 17 by
She might be overqualified for the role of R2D2.  

If we knew what the movie was about, we could speculate wildly on what her role might be, but for now, we’ll just have to settle for “Lupita Nyong’o might be in the next Star Wars movie.”

Word is that she actually met with director J.J. Abrams before she won the Oscar, so her inclusion might not be as opportunistic as us cynics would immediately think. She recently lost the role of Tiger Lilly in Pan to Rooney Mara, so there’s a spot open in her schedule for a huge blockbuster starring role. There’s a hole in my schedule for that, too, but I don’t think I’ll have as much luck as Lupita.
