Since the project was announced, Meyers' name has been floated by the media and fans as a possible cast member, particularly because the actor and filmmaker previously collaborated on 2006's "Mission: Impossible III."
"Look, I've worked with J.J.," Rhys Meyers told EW.com about the "Star Wars" buzz. "But I don't believe rumors."
Should the "Match Point" and "The Tudors" star be offered a role, it would likely be playing a villain, not a hero, the entertainment industry news website said.
"I play bad guys because I look like one," Meyers said with a laugh. "There's something in my physicality that's quite intense and lends me to being feral. I mean, I'd love to be this lovely relaxed guy doing rom-coms, but I just don't get those types of offers. I suppose I'm forever sort of the anti-hero."
Meyers, 36, is to star in NBC's new series "Dracula," starting next month.
