Today in fake Star Wars casting rumors: Josh Homme auditions for R2-D2

As the casting rumors for Disney’s continuation of the Star Wars franchise continue to swirl, there’s one role that hasn’t really been up for grabs: R2-D2. But Queens Of The Stone Age frontman Josh Homme is out to change that, with his eye on playing the “king of the droids” in the upcoming film. The new video from British sketch duo Stinky Mike has Homme deflecting the notion that he’s more suited to playing Chewbacca, since he’s an “articulate, multilingual doer” with a bleeping impression to prove it. The clip isn't exactly a high production value endeavor, but it proves once again that Josh Homme is game for almost anything.
