The veil of secrecy that has swirled around Star Wars: The Force Awakens is slowly starting to be lifted as we get closer and closer to the December 18 release date. It was recently confirmed, after months and months of speculation, that Adam Driver is playing the villainous Kylo Ren, the Sith warrior with the crossguard light saber seen in the first trailer. And numerous other characters have been confirmed over the past few months. Still, there is still plenty we don't know about director J.J. Abrams's highly-anticipated sci-fi adventure, thought it seems the director's friend and actor Simon Pegg, who has been rumored to have a mystery part in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, has let some new details slip. When asked if he was playing a Stormtrooper, the actor said he is not, before revealing that Daniel Craig is actually a Stormtrooper.
"I wasn't a Stormtrooper. Daniel Craig, he was a Stormtrooper. I shouldn't have said that."
The actor had been previously rumored to have a small role in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, which shot at Pinewood Studios in London last year, but, of course, that was never confirmed. An unidentified insider claims that Daniel Craig asked for a secret cameo.
"Daniel asked for some sort of secret cameo role - and was happy to have his name left off the posters. Fans will love trying to work out which covered up character is him."
"Why is everyone leaping on this? It was a rumour last summer, wasn't it? I read it in the paper. It may be untrue, like most of the other rumours, like Cumberbatch and Cruise being in it."
Even if this rumor is true (which is quite possible since both Bond and Star Wars shoot at Pinewood Studios in England), and Daniel Craig does play a Stormtrooper, he certainly won't be readily identifiable by fans when Star Wars: The Force Awakens hits theaters December 18. And, if it's not true, fans can still see the actor return as James Bond in Spectre, arriving in theaters November 6. Would you like to see Daniel Craig or Simon Pegg in a minor role?
