The official cast roster for "Star Wars: Episode VII" could arrive at any moment as director J.J. Abrams is staging the first table read on Tuesday in London. Naturally, that means rumors are strong with this one.

Deadline.com reports that Oscar Isaac is the latest actor attached to the forthcoming trilogy. The role he'd play is unknown, but Deadline describes it as a "major" part. Isaac joins Adam Driver, John Boyega, Ansel Elgort, Zac Efron and British newcomer Maisie Richardson-Sellers in the most recent slate of casting rumors.

In addition to Isaac, word has it that Han Solo will play an especially large part in the first entry of the new trilogy. Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher have long been rumored practically confirmed to reprise their roles from the original movies. Disney hasn't confirmed anything, but Deadline reports that Han may have a "gigantic" part in "Episode VII." That means we can hopefully expect a whole lot of Chewbacca as well.

Disney and LucasFilm are rumored to have cast announcement plans set for May 4 (aka "Star Wars" Day), so if nothing leaks before then, it could be only a few short days until the Force reveals itself.
