Mad-Max-Tom-Hardy-Grab-fury-roadMuch like Daniel Craig had a cameo as a Stormtrooper in The Force Awakens, Tom Hardy will also be donning the armor in Episode VIII. posted exclusive details on what this cameo consists of. It’s a humorous bit, and doesn’t spoil any major story elements so here’s what Tom Hardy’s Stormtrooper does in the movie:

  • Said stormtrooper glimpses FN-2187 on a secret mission but doesn’t realize it.
  • The “incognito” FN-2187 is surprised when the stormtrooper walks up behind him and slaps him on the ass.
  • FN-2187 turns around and believes he’s dead. He’s surely going to be captured.
  • The stormtrooper is elated to see his old friend from back during their First Order academy days.
  • The stormtrooper congratulates FN-2187 on his promotion to Resistance infiltrator and spy.
  • FN-2187 is free to go about his business to his amazement.

It’s a similar humorous cameo as the Daniel Craig one. It’s curious if this is going to be a tradition in the Sequel Trilogy where they find someone famous who wants to cameo in the movie as a Stormtrooper and they come up with something funny for them to do.
