Here’s a new and exciting rumor: Will Dame Judi Dench be playing Mon Mothma in Episode VII? That’s what Full of Sith’s Bobby Roberts is hearing; They discuss it on the latest episode, which also features Joe Schreiber talking Maul: Lockdown.
We know Dench isn’t adverse to genre work – in addition to her stint as M in the James Bond movies, she got her space opera on in 2004′s Chronicles of Riddick. (AKA where our old pal Vin Diesel infamously taught her to play Dungeons and Dragons.)
I don’t think anyone doubts Dench has the gravitas and talent to pull off any role they want to offer her, but remember: It’s just a rumor.
