Robert Pattinson Wants to Play Jar Jar Binks in ‘Star Wars: Episode VII’

Robert Pattinson says he would play Jar Jar Binks in Star Wars: Episode VII Now that The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2 has hit theaters, bringing this lucrative vampire franchise to a close, Robert Pattinson can finally put away the red contacts and vampire glitter. While the actor has a number of projects on his plate, he was recently asked if he would take a role in Star Wars: Episode VII, even if it is the Gungan we almost all love to hate, Jar Jar Binks. The actor gave an intriguing response, as you can see below.

"In Star Wars? Oh, absolutely. In a heartbeat. I actually kind of like Jar Jar. I don't understand what the big deal is about Jar Jar."

Of course, Jar Jar Binks was completely a CGI creation, with Ahmed Best providing the voice in Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace, Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones, and Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith. Still, since the character didn't die in the prequel trilogy, this may be a golden opportunity to pull those Twi-hards into the theaters for Star Wars: Episode VII.

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