Picking up where we left off yesterday with stories about A-list celebrities having cameo roles in Star Wars Episode VII, we've heard of three new potential cameos. Yesterday it was Daniel Craig, today it's Samuel L. Jackson, Robert Downey Jr, and Hugh Jackman. The Sun is reporting that Jackson, RDJ, and Jackman are among the Celebrities that have visited the set of the film and have gotten a cameo in the film. But don't expect to see their faces. Accroding to the Sun's source, "Some are hiding their faces just for fun but others have to for contractual reasons." Another celeb to keep an eye for may be Nick Frost, who apparently visited the set with the other three.
Before anyone gets to excited about this, keep in mind that The Sun has a sketchy track record at best. Also, based on the report, if their in there they're probably playing background aliens of Stromtroopers. It's also interesting to see Sam Jackson on that list. Jackson, of course, played Mace Windu in the prequel trilogy, so his return will probably be very well hidden to prevent any crazy 'Mace Windu is still alive' rumors. I hope that, if this story is true, it is not officially revealed until well after the film is released (DVD commentary, perhaps) so they don't draw focus away from the story and the actual stars of the film.
As always this is just a rumor until confirmed or denied by Lucasfilm or Disney.
