Today’s casting rumour is that Jesse Plemons, who played the disturbingly doe-eyed yet sociopathic Todd Alquist in Breaking Bad, is up for a lead role in Episode VII. While Plemons has yet to get the part, he is a “favorite”, having passed an initial audition, and he is scheduled to fly to L.A. to audition again and meet with J.J. Abrams.
Remember that rumour that New Mexico is a location for Episode VII? Just join the dots: a new movie being filmed in NM, starring Jesse Plemons, and it’s a sequel to a movie that was codenamed Blue Harvest. Yes, I think we all know where this is going: a Star Wars/Breaking Bad crossover.
Bryan Cranston, are you there?
