Another week, another #Cumberwatch rumor! Star Wars Episode 7 News is reporting that Sherlock star Benedict Cumberbatch has indeed filmed a cameo for Star Wars Episode VII. According to their source this took place "a week ago." Cumberbatch did say on a recent episode of The Graham Norton Show that he visited the set, though he wouldn't answer a question about filming a cameo. Unfortunately the source doesn't have any info on what his cameo might be.
Their source also states that Warwick Davis, who is officially in the film, will be playing a "cantina musician", and that Simon Pegg (who has also visited the set) filmed a scene where he gets his arms ripped off by Chewbacca. Obviously, we're big fans of Cumberbatch here at The SWU (we have a whole segment of our website and podcast dedicated to rumors about him being in Star Wars!) and would therefore love to see him in the film. However, seeing Chewbacca rip Simon Pegg's arms off would be worth the price of admission alone!
