It has been confirmed that Daniel Craig will play a Stormtrooper in The Force Awakens.

Simon Pegg accidentally told The Sun newspaper about what role the Bond star would be taking in the huge movie franchise.

Talking on the red carpet about his own part in the sci-fi franchise, he said: ‘I wasn’t a Stormtrooper. Daniel Craig, he was a Stormtrooper.’

Realising his slip up, Pegg then added: ‘I shouldn’t have said that.’

Craig was reportedly so desperate to be part of The Force Awakens that he begged director JJ Abrams for a role.


Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens is released in UK cinemas in December.
