Andy Serkis' Role in Star Wars: The Force Awakens Revealed

In a recent interview, Andy Serkis revealed that he will be playing "Supreme Leader Snoke" in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. A picture from Serkis in his motion capture getup has been released as well (picture below). 

Despite the lack of information, the idea of Serkis essentially assuming the role of the Emperor in this new trilogy is brilliant casting. Of course Serkis is going to be fantastic regardless of his role but the idea of a presumably alien leader of the new Empire is interesting. To a degree, this reminds me of the original Emperor from The Empire Strikes Back (picture below) in that the character is mysterious and alien. I am also curious as to what species of alien he will be, unless they create one for the movie.

What do you think of this news? Please comment below and let me know.

  1. I doubt he will ever win an acting Oscar (which, of course, is debatable) but I think years down the line he is going to get an Honorary Oscar! He certainly deserves it for what he has been able to do! I'm almost positive one day he'll get that lol!

    1. The Oscars should definitely recognize him in some capacity; he deserves it.


  2. This is very interesting news. I am surprised to say the least. I'm sure serkis will do a great job in his role and am that more exited to see Star Wars 7.

  3. Well, this certainly ratchets up my excitement for the new SW films! I always enjoy Andy Serkis' performances, mocap and otherwise.
