Ed Speelers for Star Wars?
One of whom is Plemons, who played the alarmingly polite yet ruthless killer Todd in Breaking Bad. He also played Landry Clarke in Friday Night Lights so is relatively well-known to American audiences.
John Boyega offers another interesting option for Abrams. He was born in Peckham, South London, and played Moses in the 2011 science fiction movie Attack the Block. He also has experienced on the stage and appeared in Six Parties at the National Theatre and Category B at the Tricycle Theatre.

26-year-old Matthew James Thomas' experience lies almost solely in theatre and musical theatre. He played the title role in the Broadway revival of Pippin and also starred in the short-lived Spider-Man musical Turn off The Dark.
Ray Fisher also has theatre experience, playing Muhammad Ali on the New York stage last year in the play Fetch Clay, Make Man.
It is thought actors like David Oyelowo and Michael B. Jordan also tested for the role early on.
Star Wars Episode VII hits theaters on December 18, 2015. Production begins at Pinewood Studios, England, in May.
