Star Wars: Rogue One signs Ben Mendelsohn

Ben MendelsohnBen Mendelsohn will be after a squad of Rebel fighters intent on stealing plans to the Death Star in ‘Star Wars Anthology: Rogue One’.

Word is that Ben Mendelsohn is circling a lead role alongside Felicity Jones in Rogue One, theStar Wars spinoff to be directed by Gareth Edwards. If Mendelsohn isn’t on your radar, he ought to be. The Aussie actor has been memorable in films that includeExodus: Gods And Kings, Killing Them Softly and The Dark Knight Rises. But he is overwhelmingly good in the stellar cast of the new Netflix series Bloodline, with a performance that has to put him smack in the middle of the Emmy discussion. As usual, Disney doesn’t comment on Star Wars business.
