@CassAnaya Theory about Star Wars: Darth Vader Clone

First time I saw this new trailer I was overcome with a theory. On Youtube, I watched over and over again:
Because it looks an awful lot like Hayden Christensen as Dark Jedi Anakin Skywalker:
His hair, the costume, the body type, the gate (his body movement), even his perceived height are all a dead match for Hayden Christensen.

"Oh no," you might say. But there is a small rumor that he has an official connection to episode 8 (There is a rumor that Hayden Christensen is returning to 'Star Wars' to ruin 'Episode VIII') and to the criticism that his presence will ruin these new Star Wars sequels. My response is:

1. I have every reason to trust J.J. Abrams

2. I think Hayden Christensen gets a bad rap for the mistakes of the prequels.

Other Reasons I believe this could be true:

1. J.J. Abrams is going for a surprise of epic proportions in the film. He has to, he's J.J. Abrams.

2. We are shown a computer voiced villain(?) vowing to continue what Darth Vader started, having taken Vader's old helmet from the funeral pyre (awesomely creepy just thinking about that):
So this may be Christensen's voice through a robotic sound filter?

3. Because the trailer goes through great lengths to keep the identity of the villain a secret, Seeing Christensen on screen (if done right) would be a colossal thrill for the audience and a chance for Christensen to redeem himself and for us to finally see a fully realized evil Anakin.

4. The presence of Christensen wasn't able to be kept totally secret. Difficult for the production, no matter how tight-knit. (How 'Star Wars: Episode VII' Lost Control of Its Secrets)

5. Clones are an important element to the Star Wars Universe and mythology. This would explain away the age difference (considering Christensen is still very young)

6. This would provide a stellar reason for the hero worship of Darth Vader.

This is just a theory, as in conjecture, not scientific fact. -@CassAnaya
