Daniel Craig Denies He\’s a Stormtrooper in The Force Awakens


The Force Awakens Teaser 2Even before Simon Pegg seemingly confirmed it, there were rumors that Daniel Craig played a Stormtrooper in The Force Awakens. Whispers came out of the production during filming that he, and some of the Bond stunt team, donned Stormtrooper armor for one scene while they were at Pinewood prepping to shoot Spectre.

Today Daniel Craig denied he’s a Stormtrooper to Entertainment Weekly:

“Why would I ever bother doing something like that?” Craig tells EW. “F—ing hell! Pffft. Play an extra in another movie?”

Could he be serious? Or could this be joking to deflect that he and the Bond stunt crew really are wearing buckets in one scene of The Force Awakens. We’ll likely never really know for sure as the rumor was you never see his face, so it’ll be one of those mysteries likely unresolved until we get a Rinzler Making Of book.
