Yeah, let’s call poodoo on this one right now. British tabloid The Sun is claiming that singer Florence Welch – of Florence and the Machine – is “being lined up for a leading role in the new Star Wars movie trilogy.” Riiiight.
They’re also claiming that Michael Jackson’s kids are “pushing for auditions,” because of course.
That said, if there’s a Mos Eisley bar-like scene featuring musicians planned in the new film, they could certainly do worse than a cameo from Welch. But for a lead role? I am beyond skeptical.
Oh, and she was born in 1986, which her makes her way too young to play Mara, so don’t even start. (via)
