According to a few of The Wrap’s sources, Plemons is scheduled to meet with director J.J. Abrams next week. It was mentioned that Plemons’ audition tape was very well received by the people that are in charge of casting for the film & he will fly in to Texas for a face-to-face audition with Abrams.
The Wrap is speculating that Plemons could possibly be up for the role of Luke Skywalker’s son because according to them, he resembles Mark Hamill.
