Rumours have circulated that Tom Hardy (Mad Max: Fury Road, The Dark Knight Rises) will be making a cameo in 'Star Wars: The Last Jedi' after some fans believe they spotted the Hollywood actor in a recently released behind-the-scenes photo from Rian Johnson yesterday.
We’re coming to Orlando for a @StarWars Celebration panel on April 14th, and I cannot wait. See you there! https://t.co/dXUgGJ1BwF— Rian Johnson (@rianjohnson) February 15, 2017
The photo depicts a group of First Order troopers who Rian Johnson said were 'excited' for a special Episode VIII panel at Star Wars Celebration Orlando this April 14 (as announced yesterday).
When one zooms in closer to the image it perhaps seems more obvious who is playing the trooper:
It's an interesting theory however. Espescially given that Hardy is rumored to have a small role in The Last Jedi. And that more details about this cameo were recently unearthed.
As always, this is just a rumor until confirmed or denied by Lucasfilm or Disney.
