Irish actor Jack Reynor has reportedly landed a role in JJ Abrams' Star Wars: Episode VII. Now, there's been tons of Star Wars casting rumors recently - Gary Oldman, Zac Efron, Michael B. Jordan - but this comes from Harry Knowles at Ain't It Cool News, a movie guy renowned for his reliable scoops.

Harry cites two separate sources confirming that Reynor - who will appear in Michael Bay's new trilogy of Transformers movies - has signed on for Star Wars Episode VII. Here's what Harry said:

"Also - here's a rumor to check up on.  I'm hearing that Jack Reynor, a young Irish actor that will be in this new Bay TRANSFORMERS trilogy - but that I've now heard from two different sources has landed a role in EPISODE VII.  No idea of what role."

Reynor, a Colorado-born actor who moved to Ireland at the age of 2, won acclaim for his performance in Lenny Abrahamson's 2012 drama What Richard Did though American audiences might recognise him for his small part in the Vince Vaughn comedy Delivery Man.
