One more reason to see Star Wars…the delicious Daniel Craig!
Since May, there was a certain rumor ricocheting across the web (thanks to Simon Pegg’s loose lips) that Craig delivers a cameo as a stormtrooper in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Not only did he VEHEMENTLY deny this rumor, according to EW, but he also seemed like, ANGRY that the rumor existed.
Well, the lady doth protest too much!
Apparently, the Spectre production took place across various soundstages just yards away from where The Force Awakens was being filmed, so basically Craig slipped out of his 007 suit and into stormtrooper gear. And yeah, that’s exactly how it went down!
Craig does make a cameo in Star Wars VII as a stormtrooper, turning up in one of the movie’s most memorably nostalgic scenes. “He did it for sh–s and grins,” says one of the people with knowledge of the actor’s performance, via Entertainment Weekly.
I can’t wait to see how he fits into the mythology. Are you excited to see Bond in Space (that’s what I’m calling Star Wars: The Force Awakens now)?
