Star Wars rumours cleared up by Daniel Craig

12-Jul-2015 • Actor News

Although he was shooting hte new James Bond film 'SPECTRE' at the same time as the new Star Wars adventure was being shot at Pinewood Studios, Daniel Craig has shot down rumours that had him playing a Storm Trooper for the sci-fi franchise.

"Why would I ever bother doing something like that?" Craig told EW. "Fucking hell! Pffft. Play an extra in another movie?"

Fellow British actor Simon Pegg started the jape some months ago, and Craig had a tongue-in-cheek piece of advice for him:

"Talk to Simon Pegg. He obviously knows way more than I do," said Craig. "He’s just jealous because he’s not in Star Wars. He’s got some issue with J.J [Abrams]. I don’t know what the fuck it is. You need to talk to Simon about it."
