The news was dropped by Simon Pegg, who accidentally revealed the casting while being asked if he was involved with the film.
“I wasn’t a Stormtrooper. Daniel Craig, he was a Stormtrooper,” he said. “I shouldn’t have said that.”
Daniel has been rumored to have a role in the film, but it was never known what he would be playing. “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,” a source told The Independent.
