Adam Driver is reportedly in final talks to play the villain in Star Wars: Episode VII.

The “Girls” actor has NOT been officially confirmed for the role yet, in part because of potential scheduling issues.

While the character has not been named, he is said to be in the vein of Darth Vader, according to Variety.

Michael Fassbender and Hugo Weaving were also rumored for the part.

No other major casting announcements have been made to this point.

The movie, directed by J.J. Abrams, is set to begin shooting in April before hitting theaters in December 2015.

What do you think of Driver potentially joining Star Wars: Episode VII as the bad guy?
