Production is scheduled to begin next month on Star Wars: Episode VII. With casting still in full swing, no one has been confirmed for this highly-anticipated sequel yet. Until that day comes, we only have the many casting rumors, the latest being that British actor Jack O'Connell is up for an unspecified role.

The actor has reportedly already met with director J.J. Abrams, and it is believed that the meeting went very well. It's also worth noting that the actors who have been previously rumored to be up for roles in the sequel all hail from England, including Saoirse Ronan, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Benedict Cumberbatch, Matt Smith, Rachel Hurd-Wood and Jason Flemyng.

It isn't known if the part Jack O'Connell read for is the same role that Matt Smith is vying for.
