A flame-haired Irish wrestler has hinted he’ll be the man behind DARTH VADER’s mask in the new Star Wars films.

WWE champion Sheamus has been linked to the role British actor Dave Prowse played in the first three Star Wars movies, and he has fueled the speculation on Twitter.

The fighter, real name 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.
