Movies.Yahoo.com — After Harrison Ford’s recent on set injury, it looks as though newcomer Oscar Isaac will be getting an extended role in ‘Star Wars VII’.
It’s been an uncertain time on the ‘Star Wars’ set lately, after Harrison Ford’s ankle injury caused the 71-year-old star to be pulled out of the production for the foreseeable future. But with rumours that he could shoot some scenes from the waist up, is he really up to it? It looks as though he may have his duties shipped out to another actor, with Oscar Isaac tipped to get an extended role…
According to NY Post, the 35-year-old ‘Star Wars’ newcomer will take on an extended role in the upcoming sequel due to Harrison Ford’s recent injury. “Hollywood sources say that star Oscar Isaac’s role in the movie is being expanded,” they revealed. “After Ford was injured on the sci-fi epic’s set, spies say Isaac’s part is now being extended as a Plan B.”
Of course, details of Isaac’s role have been kept tightly under wraps since he was announced as part of the new cast back in April. But with speculation that he could take on the role of Han Solo’s son, it sounds as though beefing up his role in the film to take over from Harrison Ford is probably a good idea.
