The Cast of the New “Star Wars” Movie Includes Oscar Isaac

posted by Nell Minow

I’m delighted to hear that Oscar Isaac, whose performance as the title character in “Inside Llewyn Davis” was my favorite of 2013, will play a lead role in the new “Star Wars” movie.  Also announced for the cast: the legendary Max von Sydow as well as Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Adam Driver (also from “Inside Llewyn Davis” as well as “Girls”), and Domhnall Gleeson.  “Star Wars” fans will be very excited to hear that Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, and Peter Mayhew will be back.

It is a bit concerning that so far only one actress has been announced, and director J.J. Abrams deserved the criticism he got for the treatment of women characters in the last “Star Trek” movie.  I hope he will do better.
