Adam Driver

Adam Driver, who we predominately know as Lena Dunhams wonderfully eccentric boyfriend on “Girls” might be on his way to a galaxy far, far away.

Variety broke the news today that Drivers “Star Wars” character is “said to be in the vein of iconic ‘Star Wars’ villain Darth Vader.”

While driver is currently the top pick for the role, there was previously a delay in the casting decision based on scheduling issues. However, sources say that those issues have been resolved and a deal will be finalized in the next few days.

“Episode VII,” directed by J.J. Abrams, is set to hit theaters on Dec. 18, 2015.
