Some days, it's good to have a face like a handsome alien.
Adam Driver, the "Girls" star who looks like the love child of sexy and weird, is putting those unconventional good looks to excellent use: He's close to signing a deal to play a villain in the upcoming "Star Wars: Episode VII," according to Variety. Sources say his character will be in the vein of Darth Vader. Apparently, the only holdup was his "Girls" shooting schedule, but surely Hannah and Marnie's Brooklynite fretting is no match for the power of the Force.
Although breathless casting rumors have swirled around just about every Hollywood male since the J.J. Adams-directed reboot was announced, nothing has been confirmed yet, including for Driver — not by the "Star Wars" people, anyhow. Driver's co-star and boss Lena Dunham seems pretty sure he's got the job.
We're VERY proud of Adam Driver re: Star Wars. He's about to rip a hole in da force. Is that a thing? I guess I should see those movies? — Lena Dunham (@lenadunham) February 26, 2014
OK, maybe not totally sure.
I confirm nothing bc I know nothing bc I'm on a plane with my dad! I just like Adam more than almost anyone, and JJ Abrams a whole lot too. — Lena Dunham (@lenadunham) February 26, 2014
It's a good day for the "Girls" gang: Driver's costar Allison Williams just got engaged.
