Who is Jesse Plemons? He’s the break out talent of Friday Night Lights. Never seen Friday Night Lights? How about Breaking Bad? He was the kid in last season that joins Walter Whites gang. Yes. That kid. Yeah, now you totally know who he is.
Well, sources close to Star Wars Episode VII say that those involved in the casting process say that Jesse Plemons is the front running for one of the lead role in the highly anticipated film.
There’s been no official word as of yet be we do know that Plemons is on a flight from Austin to Los Angeles to audition a second time, this time for Abrams himself.
No word yet on the role that Plemons is in contention for but judging from the fact that he has a resemblance to Mark Hamill it’s probably safe to say that he’s auditioning for a Skywalker part. Or at the very least a Jedi.
