News about Star Wars: Rogue One has been a bit sparse in recent days. There are just a few days left until production on the new anthology film begins, and it looks like actor Jonathan Aris — best known for his work as Anderson on BBC’s Sherlock — is joining the cast as a character named Senator Jebel.
The news of this casting decision first broke on the actor’s own Spotlight page, which acts as an official online resume used by both actors and agents:
This is the first new piece of casting news we’ve seen since it was confirmed that Oscar nominee Felicity Jones would be playing a lead character in the movie. According to BBC News, Star Wars: Rogue One will tell the story of “a brave band of resistance fighters uniting to steal the plans to the Death Star.”
