Lupita Nyong'o has reportedly met with J.J. Abrams about a role in Episode VII. We've been hearing a lot of intriguing names popping up as potential stars in the next Star Wars film, but this may be the most exciting: word has it that the Oscar-winning star of 12 Years a Slave has met with Abrams about a possible role.

The Hollywood Reporter, which is reporting the meeting, says that the role Nyong'o is up for is unclear, but speculates that it could be a descendant of Obi Wan Kenobi.


Whatever the role, please make this happen, Abrams.
