Episode IX just added a Hobbit to Its Cast!

J.J. Abrams has a habit of casting people he has worked with in the past. He is doing so again for Episode IX.

Former LOST cast member Dominic Monaghan has joined the cast of Episode IX in an unspecified role.

Entertainment Weekly reports.

The Lord of the Rings actor teased his involvement in the galactic franchise with an Instagram post today, showing a phrase from Obi-Wan Kenobi with the caption: “Seems apropos.”

The latest installment in the Star Wars saga is being directed by The Force Awakens filmmaker J.J. Abrams, who also worked with Monaghan on ABC’s Lost. It’s currently filming in the U.K. with plans for a December 2019 release.

Lucasfilm and Disney had no immediate comment on the casting, but Monaghan gave a quote to Deadline saying, “The galaxy far far away has had almost as much influence as the one I live in, so I am delighted to be involved.”
