Among the many rumors swirling around J.J. Abrams Star Wars Episode VII my favorite is easily the one that involves the director wanting his Fringe star John Noble to play a part. In a recent interview with IGN, the former Walter Bishop was asked about said rumor and Noble was more than willing to venture into the galaxy far, far away.

“That would just be epic doing something like that. And it’s not beyond the realm of possibility. I have a terrific relationship with J.J. Abrams and Bad Robot, I really do. So it’s not beyond the realm of possibility. It’s awhile away yet.”

Noble was then asked what it would be like joining up with a franchise as big as Star Wars especially given his work in The Lord of the Rings trilogy.

“Well, I mean Star Wars. If you’re going to do one, do Star Wars. I mean seriously, if you’re going to pick one to do, do that one. Because that’s basically a cultural revolution. It reset pop culture in some ways. So if I had to choose one, it would be that one.”

Look, you can bring back your Hans, Lukes and Leias all you want, as of right now I basically have two requirements for Episode VII.

1. Billy Dee Williams

2. Walter Bishop, Sith Lord

After that, everything else is gravy.
