Star Wars Fanpedia

Andy Serkis was on Conan last night and briefly talked to host Conan O'Brien about what it's like to be working on Star Wars Episode VII. The famed motion capture actor was announced as part of the cast in April, though it is not yet known what role he will be playing—or if it's a motion capture role.

Serkis is most famous for bringing the villainous Gollum to life in The Lord of the Rings trilogy and The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. He is also known for playing the ape Caesar in Rise of the Planet of the Apes. Serkis was on Conan to promote the film's sequel, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, opening on July 11th.
