‘Star Wars: Rogue One’ To Star BBC Sherlock Actor Jonathan Aris

For anyone following the BBC One series “Sherlock,” Jonathan Aris is a familiar name; the bumbling Scotland Yard official has been on the receiving end of one too many of the sleuth’s sarcastic comments. And now, reports have emerged that Jonathan Aris, 44, will be seen in the upcoming “Star Wars: Rogue One,” the first movie of the “Anthology” series. The talented actor has now given one more reason to viewers to catch this movie.

The reports emerged from BBC News, which came across Aris’ Spotlight Page, wherein he had enlisted this part as “2015, Feature Film Senator Jebel, STAR WARS ANTHOLOGY: ROGUE ONE, Disney/Lucasfilm, Gareth Edwards.” Although it is far from official, this listing gives us a solid reason to believe that Aris will feature in the distant galaxy as Senator Jebel.


Jonathan Aris has previously had notable appearances in movies like the 2009 hit “Gulliver’s Travels,” and “Race” and “The Martian” in 2014.

With the movie filming to begin shortly, we have not long to wait for the confirmation of Aris’ role. So far, the officially announced star cast include Felicity Jones, 32, as the female lead and Ben Mendelsohn, 46, as the main villain. Jones has also been cast for the role of Dr. Sienna Brooks in the upcoming Dan Brown adaptation “Inferno”, and Mendelsohn has notably starred in “The Dark Knight Rises” and “Knowing.” Suffice to say, “Rogue One” is jam packed with amazing performers! The movie is reported by Slashfilm to be about a bunch of bounty hunters hired by the rebels to try and steal the plans to the Death Star.

“Star Wars: Rogue One” is scheduled to release in December 2016 worldwide, and will be directed by Gareth Edwards, who has previously directed movies like Godzilla (2014) and Monsters (2010).
