"Star Wars: The Force Awakens" is still months away and yet fans are devouring every crumb of leaked information about the film. So here's another potential rumor for all you Hansel and Gretels out there.
A few months back, it was rumored that none other than 007 himself, Daniel Craig, might be in "The Force Awakens." Actor Simon Pegg, who has also been rumored to be in the film, might have just accidentally confirmed that.
The UK Independent reports that Pegg, while on the red carpet for a London premiere, said of the film: "I wasn't a Stormtrooper. Daniel Craig, he was a Stormtrooper...I shouldn't have said that."
It's very possible that Pegg, who has a strong background in comedy and is just a savvy bloke overall, is just playing with the media and us fans. He is, after all, more than familiar with director J.J. Abrams' infamous obsession with secrecy after working with him on the last two "Star Trek" films.
However, Pegg is also human and, as we know, humans make mistakes. Especially when it comes to The Force (why, Anakin? WHY?!?!). The Independent followed this up with a quote from a source with alleged inside knowledge who said: "Daniel [Craig] 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."
If true, it just means that Craig is as big of a fan boy as all of us and just wanted to say he was in a "Star Wars" move, even if that means being blown apart as a faceless Stormtrooper. I must admit, I really respect that.
Look for Craig and Pegg when "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" hits theaters on December 18.
