Fred Armisen Reveals He’s Been Cast in ‘Star Wars: Episode 7′ on ‘Late Night With Seth Meyers’
Casting speculation regarding 'Star Wars: Episode 7' reached a fever pitch about six months ago, but in between all the buzz about who will return and who will play an all-new character, no one thought to ask the most essential question of all: but who will be playing Outer Space itself? Step back, Harrison Ford.
Fortunately, the answer to that obviously incredible important question was answered last night on 'Late Night With Seth Meyers'. Unfortunately, however, it's Meyers' band leader, Fred Armisen, who claims to have landed the role, and if we've learned anything about Armisen since he joined up with 'Late Night,' it's that he loves nothing more to tell extreme lies about current events in his life. Well, if anyone can emit the appropriate light for the demanding role, Armisen can.
'Star Wars: Episode 7' (which won't star Fred Armisen) opens in theaters on December 18, 2015.
