There has been some talks of Keri Russell joining the cast of the next Star Wars movie. According to Variety, the ‘Felicity’ star is in early talks with writer and director J. J. Abrams. Russel and Abrams also worked together in ‘Mission Impossible III’ back in 2006.

Russell’s previous roles in FX’s ‘The Americans’, ‘Mission Impossible’, and ‘Dawn of the Planet of the Apes’, has shown her ability to perform action fight scenes. Her roles in the upcoming Star Wars film will have action-heavy fight scenes.

Although Abrams and Lucasfilm execs have met with numerous actresses for this particular role, Russell seems like the favorite so far. Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, and Adam Driver are all expected to return.
