Tom Hardy Dodges the Episode VIII Cameo Question



Last May, MakingStarWars ran a story detailing the cameo that Tom Hardy will have as a Stormtrooper in Star Wars Episode VIII (Warning: spoilers at the link). It’s very similar to the Daniel Craig cameo in The Force Awakens, and you likely won’t see his face.

Just like that Daniel Craig cameo, Hardy isn’t allowed to talk about it. THR interviewed him about a range of topics and at the end of the interview they brought up the Star Wars report:

Final question: Rumor has it you’re going to be a Stormtrooper in the next Star Wars movie. True?

I don’t know if I can even say that. Where did you hear that?

The internet.

Ah, the internet is a glorious web of deceit and misinformation, isn’t it? (Laughs.)

So that’s misinformation?

It could be, couldn’t it?

That’s not a denial there. In fact saying that he doesn’t know if he could say if it was true is a big red flag. It’s basically an “I’m Ron Burgandy?” style response. He dodged answering the question about the cameo. Just like Daniel Craig did back in July of 2015.
