Is John Noble the Main Villain in ‘Star Wars: Episode VII’?

Is John Noble the villian in J.J. Abrams' Star Wars: Episode VII? There is still much we do not know about Star Wars: Episode VII, aside from the fact that J.J. Abrams is directing from a screenplay by Michael Arndt. Today, we have an unsubstantiated rumor from an Australian radio host that Fringe star John Noble will play the villain. Here's what the host Jo of Melbourne radio show FM had to say.

"(I have) it on very good authority that Aussie actor John Noble will be appearing as the villain."

While the news may seem to come out of left field, John Noble is no stranger to big-budget franchises. He played Denethor in Peter Jackson's The Lord of The Rings: The Return of The King. Of course, he already has a relationship with director J.J. Abrams from his work on Fringe, the Fox series which the filmmaker created alongside Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman. Nothing has been confirmed by Disney or LucasFilm yet, so stay tuned.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens comes to theaters December 18th, 2015.
