Rumor: David Oyelowo, Michael B. Jordan going for roles in Episode VII?

Oyelowo and JordanLatino Review’s El Mayimbe is dropping names again. He doesn’t know what role or roles they went in for, but both David Oyelowo (The Butler) and Michael B. Jordan have auditioned… And Jordan, who’s getting a lot of buzz for Fruitvale Station, has met with J.J. Abrams personally. He’s also been rumored as a top contender to play Johnny Storm in The Fantastic Four reboot.

It’s also somewhat amusing to see that even the rumormongers are getting frustrated with the cloud of secrecy from Disney, Lucasfilm and Bad Robot… But this is a good start for everyone disappointed in the lack of diversity seen thus far in the rumors.

    I’ve really enjoyed all of Jordan’s work so far. I could easily see him playing a child of Lando’s. Or maybe a Jedi for that matter. Actually, I’d pretty much back him up if he were playing freaking Jar Jar’s offspring!
