So from Lost to The Lord of the Rings and now to Star Wars? Dominic Monaghan, best known for his role and Merry in the popular Middle Earth movies is leading us to believe that he may have a chance to be in the new Star Wars movies.

Recently, at a red carpet event, he was asked if he was in the new Star Wars, here’s his response.

He would definitely fit the casting call for

Well, only time will tell on who JJ decides to cast, but I think Dominic would be a great addition to the series, considering his passion towards Star Wars. Here’s him talking to the Huffington Post.
Remember to check back as news arises. I am sure it won’t be long before we have the cast breakdown and production moving into filming.
