Star Wars Anthology: Rogue One adds Sherlock actor

Jonathan Aris looks like he's the latest addition to Star Wars Anthology: Rogue One...

A little bit of fresh Star Wars casting news for you here. Jonathan Aris, an actor best known for playing Anderson in the Sherlock episode The Empty Hearse has become the latest addition to Gareth Edwards' upcoming Star Wars movie.

Star Wars Anthology: Rogue One is set to start filming in the UK in the next couple of months, and according to his Spotlight page (effectively his online curriculum vitae, to be used by casting agents), Aris has landed the role of Senator Jebel in the upcoming movie.

Inevitably, nothing else is known about the role so far, but Aris will be joining a cast that includes Felicity Jones and Ben Mendelsohn.

No official confirmation has been forthcoming, nor do we expect it to be for some time. Here's the snapshot of Aris' Spotlight page, »

'Star Wars: Rogue One' Casts 'Sherlock' Star Jonathan Aris

27 July 2015 9:30 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

With production set to begin very soon on Disney and LucasFilm's Star Wars Anthology: Rogue One, the BBC reports that Sherlock actor Jonathan Aris has joined the cast. The actor's Spotlight profile, a website where actors and filmmakers can post their resumes, revealed that he is playing "Senator Jebel" in Star Wars Anthology: Rogue One. That listing was later removed from his page, so it's unclear if this is the confirmed character or not.

If, in fact, the actor has signed on for the Star Wars anthology movie, he will join a cast that includes Felicity Jones, Riz Ahmed, Sam Claflin, Diego Luna, Ben Mendelsohn and Forest Whitaker. The story centers on a group of Rebel Alliance soldiers who embark on a mission to steal plans for the original Death Star. The plot is set between the events of Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith and »

Star Wars Anthology: Rogue One Finds a Senator in Jonathan Aris

27 July 2015 12:01 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

As we're only a week or so away from Star Wars Anthology: Rogue One going into full production, it shouldn't be much of a surprise to hear more about casting.  Today brings word that Sherlock actor Jonathan Aris has joined up as a Senator in the film.  Come inside to learn more.  

Technically speaking, this is a rumor at the moment, as Disney/Lucasfilm Still can't talk about Rogue One until the new Mission Impossible movie hits theaters, but in all likelihood this is legitimate.  The BBC spotted the information on Jonathan Aris' Spotlight Page.  The site is essentially an online CV for actors/agents people to use and connect, so it's a pretty official thing, people wouldn't want to lie on. Plus the site was pretty spot on with casting news just prior to The Force Awakens starting up production.  So there's precedent for this being the real thing. »

Sherlock’s Jonathan Aris Reportedly Joining Star Wars: Rogue One

27 July 2015 10:32 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

When it comes to blockbuster franchises like Star Wars, which keep secrets under lock and key while mounting massive productions around the world, there’s really no telling from where the next scoop is going to come.

Today, it appears that the BBC has latched onto an interesting bit of information about Star Wars: Rogue One – it’s spotted that Sherlock veteran Jonathan Aris’ Spotlight page (basically LinkedIn for actors) lists him as playing “Senator Jebel” in the ensemble Star Wars Anthology film.

The credit has mysteriously disappeared from Aris’ page, but here’s a screen grab:

Now who or what a Senator Jebel is remains to be seen, but it’s a safe bet that his official stature will make him an Imperial ally, seeing as Rogue One is set between Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope. Whether he’s a spy helping the rebels or »

Sherlock's Jonathan Aris Reportedly Cast In Star Wars Anthology: Rogue One

27 July 2015 9:26 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

It’s not often that anything escapes the secrecy shields surrounding the Star Wars franchise, even in these leak-happy days. But according to the BBC, which spotted the news on the actor’s Spotlight page, Sherlock veteran Jonathan Aris has been cast in Star Wars Anthology: Rogue One.Though the information has since vanished from his page, the Beeb’s Lizo Mzimba took a grab of the site when it was still up, showing Aris (shown above right in Sherlock alongside Rupert Graves) playing someone called Senator Jebel. There has been no official announcement as of yet, so we’re obligated to keep this within the realm of rumour for now (sound the klaxon!) but the Spotlight site, an official source for actors’ bios, isn’t known for running specious information. Even if it appears someone has jumped the gun – or the blaster rifle – this time. So far, what we »

20 Doctor Who Actors Who Appeared in Sherlock

27 July 2015 9:05 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

BBC

Fans of Steven Moffat’s two TV behemoths, Sherlock and Doctor Who, have been clamouring for some sort of crossover for ages. Moffat himself has said that he is up for the idea but his Sherlock co-creator Mark Gatiss and that show’s producers, however, think it is something best left to the imagination.

Well, as it looks like we won’t see Sherlock step foot in the Tardis any time soon it seems we will have to entertain ourselves with a different sort of crossover; spotting those actors that have appeared in both shows. Interestingly, some of the series’ leads have almost crossed over. Famously, Matt Smith auditioned for the role of Dr Watson before becoming the Eleventh Doctor and, perhaps less famously, Benedict Cumberbatch was told to go for the role of that same Doctor by outgoing Time Lord and good friend David Tennant but didn’t take up the offer. »

"Sherlock" Actor Joins "Star Wars: Rogue One"

27 July 2015 7:05 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Jonathan Aris, who plays forensic scientist Anderson on The BBC's "Sherlock," has apparently joined the cast of Gareth Edwards' "Star Wars" anthology movie "Star Wars: Rogue One" for Disney Pictures.

Aris has reportedly been cast as a character called Senator Jebel, and the news of his casting in the film was revealed via his official online CV. That listing has since been removed, and there has been no official announcement as of yet so count this only as rumor for now.

This does mark one of the first pieces of casting news since it was confirmed Felicity Jones would play the lead while the likes of Riz Ahmed, Sam Claflin, Diego Luna and Ben Mendelsohn are in talks.

Set in the time between Episodes III and IV, the story follows a brave band of resistance fighters uniting to steal the plans to the original Death Star. It hits cinemas next December. »

The outrageous fortune of Benedict Cumberbatch

26 July 2015 7:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Five years ago, Sherlock propelled him into the stratosphere. Now he’s photobombing the Oscars and selling out Hamlet a year in advance. Friends and co-stars reveal why the world is wild for Benedict Cumberbatch

Twenty years ago, while he was still at school, Benedict Cumberbatch had his first chance to star in Hamlet. But, remembers Harrow drama teacher Martin Tyrell, he decided to concentrate on his A-levels instead. A couple of years earlier, the pupil had joined a Shakespeare workshop and had spent a couple of hours working on the play’s first scene. Tyrell remembers the 15-year-old being “so gripped by it. That was when he woke up to Shakespeare, I think, and the idea of becoming a professional actor.”

Tyrell, having seen Cumberbatch’s obvious talent in several school productions, thought he would become “an extremely hard-working, conscientious and successful professional actor, but I had no idea »

Tilda Swinton unsure if she’ll play the Ancient One in Doctor Strange as a man or a woman

25 July 2015 9:28 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Back in May it was revealed that Marvel Studios had tapped Tilda Swinton (Snowpiercer, Trainwreck) to play the role of Dr. Stephen Strange’s mentor The Ancient One in the Phase Three release Doctor Strange.

Naturally, this led everyone to assume that Marvel had decided to gender swap the character – who in the comic book universe is an elderly Tibetan male – but it seems that may not be the case after all.

According to The Guardian, Swinton has said that “she doesn’t yet know if she will play the part as a man or a woman”. However, it should be noted that the article doesn’t contain any direct quotes from the actress, so we’ll have to see how this one plays out…

Doctor Strange is set for release on November 4th 2016, and will see Scott Derrickson (Sinister) directing Benedict Cumberbatch (Sherlock) as the Sorcerer Supreme alongside Tilda Swinton »

Sherlock's unaired pilot: How does it stack up to 'A Study in Pink'?

25 July 2015 1:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

In 2009, the BBC produced a 60-minute pilot for a new series. It was written by Steven Moffat, starred Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman, and was based on the first (and little-adapted) Sherlock Holmes novel by Arthur Conan Doyle, A Study in Scarlet. If this sounds familiar, it's because the episode was ultimately reworked – and re-shot entirely – as the episode 'A Study in Pink', after the BBC decided to produce the show as three feature-length episodes rather than six hour-long ones.

Reports that the pilot had been scrapped led to some less-than-positive buzz around the show, with rumours flying that the series was a dud – but then Sherlock debuted in all its 90-minute glory back in summer of 2010, and we all remember how that went.

Co-creators Moffat and Mark Gatiss have always maintained that they're proud of the pilot, and it's included on the first series DVD as proof. So on »

Lionel Bart’s celebrated Dickens adaptation to go before cameras again, with Jonathan Strange director Toby Haynes making his feature film debut

A new film version of the popular family musical Oliver! is set to go into production, with Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell director Toby Haynes in charge of the cameras, it has been reported.

According to the Daily Mail’s showbiz reporter Baz Bamigboye, theatre producer Cameron Mackintosh has teamed up with powerhouse UK film outfit Working Title to get a long-mulled over film production off the ground. (The same team partnered for the blockbusting 2012 adaptation of stage musical Les Miserables.) The original suggestion was that Billy Elliot director Stephen Daldry may have taken the director’s chair, but that is apparently not the case. Aside from Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell, Haynes has also directed episodes of Sherlock, Doctor Who and Being Human. This would be his feature film debut. »
