‘Star Wars The Force Awakens’: Simon Pegg confirms Daniel Craig cameo, new pics

Simon Pegg may have dropped a fun little nugget for Star Wars fans, confirming that James Bond actor Daniel Craig has a small cameo in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, one audiences may not even see. Also, fans get looks at Gwendoline Christie, Adam Driver as the villain Kylo Ren

While Pegg is understandably cautious on detials, when asked about his involvement in the movie by The Independent, Pegg accidentally let it slip about Craig’s role:

“I wasn’t a Stormtrooper. Daniel Craig, he was a Stormtrooper. I shouldn’t have said that.”

Collider was quick to reach out the Star Trek star and Pegg offered this “response”: “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 rumors, like Cumberbatch and Cruise being in it.”

“If Craigis in the film as a Stormtrooper, it’s not like we’ll have visual confirmation of the cameo anyway (nor is he playing some super secret major role, like Darth Vader’s twin brother), so this is he/isn’t he debate is kind of moot,” Collider noted.
