The rumor that began circulating last week (courtesy of our friends at Latino Review), was that David Oyelowo and Michael B. Jordan had both met with director JJ Abrams regarding roles in the upcoming Star Wars franchise reboot.But maybe these meetings were for something else entirely - at least in Oyelowo's case - as The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that Oyelowo is "in the process of being cast" as one of a handful of voice leads for, not Star Wars: Episode VII, but for Star Wars: Rebels, the CGI animated series that will air on Disney XD, in the fall of 2014.No word on what character Oyelowo's voice is in consideration for, but I should note that, this news doesn't necessarily mean that he isn't being considered for a role in Episode VII, the film, as well.Oyelowo would join Freddie Prinze Jr., Vanessa Marshall, Taylor Gray and Steven Jay Blum, all giving voice to characters in the animated series.The THR report doesn't state anything about Michael B. Jordan, however.At least 3 more Star Wars movies, plus individual movies based on characters from the Star Wars universe, plus individual TV series also based on characters from the Star Wars universe, are expected over the next 6 to 7 years.

Are David Oyelowo & Michael B. Jordan In Consideration For 'Star Wars: Episode VII' Roles?

From the rumor-mill, courtesy of our friends at Latino Review, who've broken many-a-story in the past. Although, no official confirmation of any of this from the actors themselves, the studio, or the director. In short, Latino Review is reporting exclusively that David Oyelowo and Michael B. Jordan (2 black actors who are having very good years, starring in 2 of 2013's most-talked about films) have both met with director JJ Abrams regarding roles in the upcoming Star Wars franchise reboot, although the website doesn't say what those specific roles might be that Abrams is considering the 2 actors for.You'll recall that it was last fall when Disney bought Lucasfilm for $4.1 billion and has announced its intent to make another trilogy (at least) of Star Wars films, with the first one (to be directed by JJ Abrams) set for release in 2015, and a new one every two to three years thereafter.On top of that, Disney later revealed that, in addition to at least 3 more films, fans should expect stand-alone films, and TV series, separate from the official Star Wars films, that will be based on Star Wars characters.
