Star Wars: Episode IX is set to arrive in theaters on December 20, 2019.

According to Variety, Russell was one of several actors that Abrams considered for the currently-unknown role.

Keri Russell is in talks to join Disney and Lucasfilm's Star Wars: Episode IX.

Russell, who worked with Abrams before on the show Felicity and in Mission Impossible III: The One We Try Hardest to Forget, has wrapped up her hit series The Americans and is now a free agent, flawless to join a galaxy far, far, away. But let's be real, the role was probably hers all along, given her long working relationship with Abrams, who created her most famous role in his hit series Felicity.

The role calls for action-heavy fight scenes and Russell has shown her ability to perform tough stunts in projects like FX's "The Americans", "Mission: Impossible", and "Dawn of the Planet of the Apes".

The film reunites Russell with Felicity co-creator J.J.

Of course, for now the casting rumor is just that-a rumor.

If this does come to pass, there is no doubt Russell could fit seamlessly into the universe, but leads to Star Wars fans' favorite game: WHO IS THIS NEW CHARACTER AND HOW ARE THEY RELATED TO THE ORIGINAL SERIES! Is she a member of the tyrannical First Order, working for Kylo Ren?

There's been plenty of noise surrounding the fan anger and backlash directed towards Star Wars movies of late and this week James Gunn even encouraged toxic Star Wars fans to seek therapy.

This certainly seems to be a reference to the vitriol directors like Rian Johnson received for his work on Star Wars: The Last Jedi.
