Report: Is This How Tom Hardy Cameos in Star Wars: Episode VIII?
From Daniel Craig to Simon Pegg, Star Wars: The Force Awakens was loaded to they eyeballs with celebrity cameos. Not to be beaten, Rian Johnson is already rumored to have lined up some huge names to make cameos in Star Wars: Episode VIII, with one rumor suggesting that the cameo list could even include genuine royalty.

Another recent rumor suggested that Tom Hardy (Mad Max: Fury Road) would be joining the ranks of celebrity Star Wars cameos, and now those rumors are resurfacing with a new report that claims to have a detailed description of Hardy's appearance.

Similar to fellow countryman Daniel Craig's cameo, Making Star Wars claims Hardy will make an appearance as a Stormtrooper in a somewhat comedic moment.

Possible spoilers ahead! (Click to reveal)



With Finn on a mission for The Resistance, Tom Hardy's Stormtrooper spots his old friend FN-2187 and walks over to greet him. Finn turns around and thinks he's about to be turned back over to The First Order, but Hardy's trooper –seemingly unaware of FN-2187's status as a traitor– begins to reminisce with his old friend about their time in the academy before congratulating him on his successful infiltration of The Resistance and sets him on his way before his 'cover' is blown.

If this is true, it's an encouraging sign that Rian Johnson is going to continue the comedic tone that made such an impact in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. With Han gone, it looks like it will be up to Finn to deliver a lot of the laughs, and moments like this could certainly be a sign of how that challenge will be handled.
