    Rooney Mara has the look and pedigree of an Oscar nom. But Tatiana Maslany is phenomenal actress that can bring to life any character.

    I am so bored of Rooney Mara already. Bring on Tatiana Maslany. Felicity Jones while wonderful, just seems too upper crust British for a Star Wars movie. It works if you’re a Jedi I guess…but, bring on someone a little more Carrie Fisher will ya?
