There had been rumours about Adam Driver being linked to Star Wars for some time, so now it's been revealed, we have to admit we're glad that sometimes rumours are true.
The 30-year-old actor is best known for his role on hit US drama Girls alongside Lena Dunham as her on-off boyfriend. He was nominated for an Emmy for his role, too, and has also appeared in several indie movies such as Inside Llewyn Davis. His other acting credits also include 2012's Oscar success Lincoln, J Edgar and Frances Ha.
He'll make a striking addition to the Star Wars line-up, thanks to his unique look and 6ft 3in frame.
