The Irish Mirror newspaper ran an article today speculating that WWE Superstar Sheamus will be playing Darth Vader in the new “Star Wars: Episode VII” movie that is currently in production.
Sheamus, who is currently in Ireland, where scenes for the movie are being shot, has appeared as Darth Vader for various Star Wars promotional tours in the past.
Sheamus is not currently listed as a cast member at IMDB.com, however, there’s also nobody listed as playing the Darth Vader character.
In response to the Irish Mirror report, Sheamus tweeted:
I cant confirm that i wont not be reprising role of Darth Vader in #StarWars … I hope that's clear @IrishMirror 😉 pic.twitter.com/hj0JNigkYm
