At this point in time I believe he is either reading or has read the current draft and turned in notes to the screen writer for changes.
Your first clue to when casting is about to start or is starting is when we find out the name of the movie...because thats when it get told to casting agents and is publicly known.

Now the big cast news like Luke, Han and Leia will/may happen now if JJ has his mind set on the originals returning(like your example with TDK, Nolan knew the Joker was going to be the villain regardless of whatever revision the script was on).
Nolan did not know. He actually was not keen on doing another movie, until I believe it was the end of 2005 or early 2006. That he decided to do TDK. JJ read the script on December 23rd when Kathy brought Arndt with her to convince him to join. So in that time there may be just one of those characters on page where you are like "him". Nolan did that with Heath. Now again that does not mean it's happened here. But sometimes there are people they just know they need for the part early on. TDK is just one example.

Now of course this may be bull, and it may not have happened yet. I'm just saying it's not impossible and some mathematical formula where they read the part of the villain in Episode VII and said "We have to have so and so". Having said that coming from LR I have little faith.

I still don't believe a word Nolan has said regarding the TDKT and how there was no planning ahead and bull like that.

Man...as expected, there's barely any buzz on that LR scoop on Jonathan Ryhs Meyers. Comingsoon.net or this site hasn't reported it...deadline/variety/theWrap/hollywood reporter didn't either.

I know..I know..it's LR but man, it shows how times have changed since their hey day only a few years ago..

Yeah, if it had any truth, the trades would have been all over it last night. Like what happened when TheWrap broke the news about JJ directing.

Yeah, and El May's scoop on the Iron Man 3's stinger (after-credits) scene with Tony meeting up with the Guardians of the Galaxy (thought to be fair, I think Marvel really wanted to do it but RDJ's contract was up in the air and they couldn't risk it.

Also, I always always remember the casting of Captain America. For weeks, all the trades had random lists of all of the young actors in Hollywood auditioning for the role of Cap. I think Chris Evans barely got mentioned once in the endless weeks of news of candidates....and guess who got the role?

Anything can happen in Hollywood. But if I was a betting man, I don't think Disney wants Meyers even if JJ pushes for him.

Or maybe they realized how crap Iron Man 3 was and decided to keep Guardians of the Galaxy at a distance.

I didn't care for Iron Man 3.

So there's a rumor that Joblo.com has, and they stated the main villain for 'Guardians of the Galaxy' isn't The Controller as reported by Latino Review's El May a few weeks ago, but some dude name Ronan.

Let's play the 'what if' game. Let's say Joblo is right, and El May is wrong. Then how can we trust that Meyers rumor?

Again, like what I've said before, his track record has been so spotty as of late. If it's like if he's right once out of four scoops, that's not a good consistent ratio to fall back on.

He was like right about Georges St. Pierre being in Captain America 2, but who really cares. The trades reported about Robert Redford being in it a week later.

Yeah El Maybe has been way to spotty lately. That being said, I'd like Rhys Meyers in a role

With his track record, I can't hype myself up too much for Meyers even though he would be a great addition to the cast. But it just seems so early for that sort of thing right now, even before casting the female lead.

random question: So I was the horrorifc movie Indy 4 again, and yes, Harrison was the only good thing about it but...did he do a lot of ADR for it? Or was his voice enhanced somehow?

Because some how he sounds 20 years younger in that film than in Firewall.

That's why I'm not feeling Meyers if the rumors are true. Who knows? He might pull a Heath but there's a certain disconnect with him as an actor. I like him and all, plus I know he went through some personal problems, but he hasn't delivered a film where you had to see it because of him. He doesn't have a Bronsan like with Tom Hardy. He doesn't have his 'Kiss Kiss Bang Bang'. Or the Gosling double-hit combo of 'Blue Valentine' and 'Drive'.

However, it would be ballsy and unexpected if Leo was in Star Wars. Or Joaquin Phoenix. Actors of a "HOLY COW" caliber of acting.

Leo in Star Wars... Isn't this an old rumour? Not that I'd say anything than a gargantuan YES if that were to happen.

Yeah if he did it, man, it would be weird and cool at the same time. Again, unexpected and exciting.

If I were JJ and knew about Leo's love for Star Wars, he should try to get him aboard.

Fixed.

But seriously, Leo wouldn't even have to wield a lightsaber, just make him this tactical genius.

Oh, man, could Joaquin Phoenix rock this. Great, now I'm all riled up about probably nothing.

I don't know how I'd feel about Leonardo Dicaprio. I...don't think I've ever wanted him cast in anything I'd like, or even gone "boy, this role could sure be enhanced by Leonardo Dicaprio." But then again, I haven't seen Django Unchained. Or a lot of stuff.
