Star Wars Episode 9: JJ Abrams Bringing Keri Russell To The Cast

Little is known about Russell's role in the film, but the outlet notes that it will call for action-heavy fight scenes. With the passing of Carrie Fisher, and the lack of exploration of the Skywalker twins and their relationship to Padme, it would be nice if she could return in some way in Episode IX.

Abrams and Lucasfilm execs had been meeting with several actresses for the role for the past two months and settled on Russell right before the Fourth of July holiday. Abrams-created TV series Felicity, is joining Abrams in a galaxy far, far away. They first teamed on The WB drama series Felicity way back in 1998 and then reunited for Mission: Impossible III, which served as Abrams' feature directorial debut.

Abrams helmed “Star Wars: The Force Awakens, ” and was asked to come back to direct this latest installment after Colin Trevorrow exited following creative differences.

What about you? Who do you think Russell might play in Star Wars Episode IX? "I would do anything for JJ, honestly, I would do craft service".
