    Sheamus’s tweet says, “I can’t confirm”. That was either a typo or an intentional double negative. If the latter is true, he’s basically confirming that he’s the next Darth Vader.

      The thing has me confused, though, since I can’t recall when Sheamus ever played Darth Vader in the past, as one cannot “reprise” a role they have never had, whereas Mark Hamill is reprising his role as Luke Skywalker.

      Or… do people just not know how to use the word “reprise” anymore?
