The former WWE champ has hinted he'll be the man behind Darth Vader's mask in the new "Star Wars" films. The Irish grappler has been linked to the role British actor Dave Prowseplayed in the first three "Star Wars" movies, and he has fuelled the speculation on Twitter.com.

Sheamus; whos real name is Stephen Farrelly, has been spotted close to where filming is taking place on Skellig Michael Island in Ireland, and he recently posted a photo of himself wielding a toy lightsaber on Twitter.

The new J.J. Abrams-directed Star Wars sequel will feature returning stars Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher and Harrison Ford, once he recovers from a leg injury, and Oscar Isaacs, Adam Driver and Andy Serkis, among others.
