Riz Ahmed is in talks for Star Wars

Casting news are coming for the Gareth Edwards film: Star Wars Anthology: Rogue One. The upcoming weeks will have big news about the Star Wars universe, especially when it comes to casting decisions since they’re are not the common casting choices.

Devin Faraci from Badass Digest has heard some names and one of them is Riz Ahmed. Many may remember him from Nightcrawler. Ahmed is a British born Muslim of Pakistani descent who also starred in Four Lions. Star Wars is not only being more diverse, but also they are hiring extraordinary actors for their upcoming movies. Riz is a very complex and talented actor. Over the years he showed how versatile he is. Adding him into the Star Wars mix is a no brainer.

Star Wars Anthology: Rogue One is expected to have a big main cast. The film begins filming in a month or two and Riz Ahmed would be joining the already announced Felicity Jones and the huge cast yet to be reported
