Keri Russell might soon be fending off die-hard sci-fi creepsters hating on her via social media for appearing in a Star Wars flick while…not being white enough? Not being busty enough? Not appearing in a leather bikini while chain-choking a Donald Trump lookalike? According to The Hollywood Reporter, Russell’s next role might be in Star Wars: We’re Sure To Piss Off The Mouth-Breathers With This One.
Star Wars: Episode IX is being directed by JJ Abrams, who created Felicity. So she’s got the part. Since Felicity, JJ went on to take over the two biggest sci-fi franchises in the land (Star Wars and Star Trek) and Keri and her 1980s pussy bow blouses wowed the critics as a Russian sleeper agent posing as the mom next door in The Americans. Keri and JJ last worked together on the Abrams-directed Mission Impossible III which she was in for about three minutes because that short-ass diva Tom Cruise refused to be upstaged any more than he had to be by the WB’s second brightest star.
The ninth installment of the Star Wars saga will reportedly wrap up the current storyline and has already begun shooting in London with Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, Oscar Issac, and John Boyega reprising their roles from the last two movies.
Keri’s character on The Americans killed loads of people while wearing a variety of wigs so she should fit right in with all the Star Wars spaceship battles and creature makeup. There’s no word yet on what character she would play. Hopefully, her part would have nothing to do with Solo: A Star Wars Story because even the incels didn’t bother with that one. That says something because it was a whole new opportunity to terrorize innocent space actresses.
