WWE’s Sheamus to be Darth Vader in Episode 7?
Speaking on behalf of nerds everywhere, WTF?!
First I want to say, Darth Vader is in Episode 7? As we all remember he died at the end of Episode 6 and to make sure we have no loose ends, they burned his body. I am hoping this is a terrible prank to see how much people are paying attention because I really was not expecting Darth Vader to be in Episode 7.
Before your head starts exploding, if this rumor is true, Sheamus will only be playing the man in the suit. Don’t be expecting Vader to have this weird Irish accent now. James Earl Jones is expected to still be the voice of Darth Vader.
I can’t stop picturing someone taking off Darth Vaders Helmet and seeing bright Irish red hair. Wrestler’s are hot in movies right now. Bautista is in ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ and The Rock just starred in ‘Hercules’. I guess J.J. Abrams wanted to make sure at least one member of the WWE was in his movie. I just wish it was Hulk Hogan.
