A story on Variety.com reports on rumors about three actors who at this time appear to be in the running for the lead role in the next Star Wars film. One of those rumored to be in the running is Attack the Block star John Boyega. While Star Wars has had African Americans in supporting roles ( See Billy Dee Williams and his perm, Samuel Jackson, and that guy that played Captain Panaka. Sorry black women you are ass out in the Star Wars Universe .) This would be a first for the franchise if it comes to pass. Let's keep our fingers crossed.
