Dominic Monaghan cast in Star Wars: Episode IX

We have another actor that has worked with J.J. Abrams in the past cast in Star Wars: Episode IX. Lost and The Lord Of The Rings fans will notice him right away–it’s none other than Dominic Monaghan! Deadline reported this news this afternoon with the following statement:

“Dominic Monaghan is joining the cast of Star Wars: Episode IX, Not sure what role he will be playing, but he’s set, and it reunites him with J.J. Abrams, with whom he did the ABC series Lost.”

I am a massive fan of Lost so this news gets me really pumped. Now this doesn’t mean it’ll be a big role (it could be as simple as Resistance Soldier #1). Regardless, it is cool that J.J. is getting a fellow Lost alum in the film. Back in 2014, Dominic had expressed his interest in working on The Force Awakens and now he’s getting his chance. The Star Wars: Episode IX hype train is definitely in motion now!
