Did Daisy Ridley Just Give Away Who Her Star Wars VII Character Is?

- -

Production has kept a pretty tight lid on most of Star Wars: The Force Awakens' secrets, but rumors fly and sometimes actors let things slip.  In the video above, Rey actress Daisy Ridley drops a pretty big hint that all but confirms who she really plays in the movie. 

According to Ridley, "I'm solitary, that's how I begin, that's probably a big clue."  Solitary, eh? As in... Solo?  The leading theory on the internet is that she is the daughter of Han and Leia, which her "solo" joke seems to confirm.  We've also seen her alongside Han on the cover of Vanity Fair, where she definitely looks like she could be his daughter:

I Ship It: Luna Lovegood and James Potter are a Real Life Couple

Headcanon accepted!  Harry Potter actors Evanna Lynch (Luna Lovegood) and Robbie Jarvis (James Potter) are dating in the muggle world.  Yesterday, Evanna posted a photo of the pair for Robbie's 29th birthday, referring to him in the caption as a "little babe":

She talks about their relationship in other photos, even referring to him as her "boyf". The pair spends quite a bit of time together, doing activities that look like great date material:

It's only a matter of time before Luna/James fanfiction becomes a thing, though I suppose there will have to be some time travel involved.  Maybe Luna sees him in the Mirror of Erised and through the magic of non-canon imagination, he steps out to greet her.  Though if Luna ends up with James, would Harry cease to exist?  Be careful fic writers; with great power comes great responsibility.

Chris Pratt is Totally Into Playing Indiana Jones

- -

Stephen Spielberg apparently really wants Chris Pratt for a new Indiana Jones, and according to this clip it sounds like Pratt is game, provided that "it's perfect" (you know, no pressure).  He gently quashed any rumors that it's currently happening saying, "it's all nothing until it's something and so far it's not something."  He went on to express interest though, saying "it'd be cool.  No one's called me, you know, there's a lot of talk about it... the pressure would come just because it's such a great franchise you wouldn't want to get it wrong, so for me it'd have to be perfect to do it."

Keep your hope alive, friends.  Pratt for Jones 2015!

That About Sums It Up

Say your prayers that this is a hoax, everyone. For now there's no confirmation that Justin Bieber is playing Robin, just an Instagram photo of Bieber holding the script with the hashtag "Robin." I somehow doubt that's how the studio would want the news to be broken, so I'm holding out for a hero a follow up to tell me it isn't true.
