Andy Serkis' Role In STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS Finally Revealed

There's been a lot of speculation about Andy Serkis' (Avengers: Age of Ultron, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes) role in J.J. Abrams' Star Wars: The Force Awakens, but now StarWars.com has finally revealed who he'll be. It's a mo-cap role, and sounds a lot like a villain...

Famed photographer Annie Leibovitz recently visited the set of Star Wars: The Force Awakens for Vanity Fair, revealing many characters from the movie for the first time (include Lupita Nyong'o as mo-cap character Maz Kanata). Asked about Adam Driver's intense and troubled looking Kylo Ren - presumably the movie's man villain - she said: "I’d like to take credit for that, but it’s all Adam. He’s an extraordinary actor. If you talk to J.J. about him, J.J. says, ‘He’s Brando, he’s Brando!’ It’s true. You just ask for a little and you get a lot. I think what’s great about going to the set is, your actors are in that mode. They are in their characters. So even though I didn’t know anything about Adam’s character, he gave us that performance, which was amazing." 

Like Nyong'o, Andy Serkis is also bringing a character to life in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and StarWars.com has now officially unveiled the previously unseen photo of the actor on set as Supreme Leader Snoke. No further details than that are revealed, but it certainly sounds like a villain's name, wouldn't you say? As always, be sure to share your thoughts and theories below...
