Adam Driver's
embracing his dark side!

The "Girls" star is in talks to play the villain in "Star Wars: Episode VII," Variety reports. While nothing has been signed, it's almost a done deal.

Adam's HBO costar Lena Dunham seemingly confirmed the news via Twitter on Wednesday as well.

The bad guy in the new "Star Wars" film is also rumored to resemble the iconic Darth Vader -- and Driver is one of the first stars to be linked to the highly-anticipated (and totally top secret) sci-fi flick. 

The movie is set to begin shooting in April and will be based out of London's Pinewood Studios, so expect to know the full cast soon!
