Benicio Del Toro as villain in Episode 8?

"The Wolfman" American PremiereEW has just reported that Benicio Del Toro has had dealings with Lucasfilm to be cast as the villain in Star Wars: Episode 8.  It should be noted that this in no way means it will be Del Toro in the end who gets the role, as many actors enter into talks with directors over roles and few go any farther than the talk itself.  It does however, show Lucasfilm is on the ball with episode 8.

A fun little bit of Star Wars trivia: Benicio Del Toro almost landed the role of Darth Maul in The Phantom Menace, but left the project when George Lucas removed most of Maul’s lines from the film.
