Chiwetel Ejiofor

After his performance in 12 Years A Slave, Chiwetel Ejiofor is one of the hottest actors in Hollywood at the moment. The 36-year-old London native probably has numerous scripts sent to him daily, but one visit to the office of J.J. Abrams has movie insiders speculating that Ejiofor could be participating in the highly anticipated Episode VII of the Star Wars franchise.

Abrams is set to direct the next installment of the sci-fi series. Parts in the potential blockbuster film are being coveted by several actors and actresses knowing the roles could be the catalysis to a major box office career.

Fellow Best Actor Oscar contender Michael B. Jordan (Fruitvale Station, The Wire) admitted last month that he auditioned for a part in Star Wars 7. He told the AP, ?I mean, everybody?s going in on this project. They?re trying to figure out what they want.?

Prior to playing the kidnapped free slave Solomon Northup in 12 Years, Ejiofor starred in Four Brothers, Inside Man, and American Gangster. He is next set to appear in the post-nuclear war science fiction flick Z for Zachariah.
