David Oyelowo who’s latest movie The Butler is still attracting a lot of buzz is reported to be in talks to star in an upcoming Star Wars cgi-animation Star Wars: Rebels.
Oyelowo isn’t the only actor said to currently be in talks to lend his voice to the animation due to start showing in 2014, as other actors like Freddie Prinze Jr., Vanessa Marshall, Taylor Gray and Steven Jay Blum are also expected to lend their voices to the animated series.
From the information gotten, Star Wars: Rebels will take place during the twenty years between Episode III and Episode IV, at “a time where the Empire is securing its grip on the galaxy and hunting down the last of the Jedi Knights as a fledgling rebellion against the Empire is taking shape.”
David Oyelowo has got a good thing going for him right about now as he is also working on Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar with some other projects coming up. Hopefully this voice work will not be the first and last for the talented actor.
