LONDON – It has been revealed that celebrated actor Taye Diggs will play a small but key role in the upcoming Star Wars VII.

Diggs, who was scandalously overlooked for the Best Supporting Actor Oscar for his stunning work in the stick-fighting science fiction thriller Equilibrium, is rumoured to be playing a character called Zar Tol, a weapons designer who is asked to create a custom lightsaber for a member of the rebellion.

According to a studio source, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Ralph Fiennes and Daniel Day-Lewis were all up for the role but it was Diggs that blew director J.J. Abrams away:

“Taye was immense,” said the anonymous source:

All of Hollywood knows that he’s the most talented actor of his generation but he’s just not interested in becoming a big star preferring to pour his time and energy into his charity The Taye Diggs Foundation. He was such a pleasure to work with and he’s got so many great stories. I remember him telling a few of us over lunch about the day Christopher Nolan begged him to play The Joker in The Dark Knight and although he was tempted, he chose to direct and star in an off broadway production of Doctor Faustus instead.

One of Diggs’ closest friends, Christian Bale said during a recent radio interview that he was excited about his pal’s cameo:

Taye, man. The Diggster. He’s a legend. Up there with Brando, for me but he’s not interested in the fame. Doesn’t want any of it and I respect him for that. Now if you’ll excuse me, I have to return some videotapes.

Star Wars VII will be released in December 2015
