When we heard Daniel Craig was going to cameo as a stormtrooper in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, we were a little dubious.
Sure he may be a big fan, but the man doesn't get paid to NOT show that face! And he denied outright playing "an extra in another movie."
PLUS, funny man Simon Pegg could have been totally pulling our leg with the reveal…

But it turns out it's true! All of it!
According to sources speaking to Entertainment Weekly, the Spectre star did the cameo "for sh*ts and grins!" And thanks to those same behind-the-scenes whispers, we now know WHICH stormtrooper he plays!

Well into the film, there's a great scene where Rey (Daisy Ridley) is locked up by the First Order and tries to convince a guard — who'll only call her "scavenger scum" — to help her escape.

We won't get into what happens next, but suffice to say it's hilarious and very well-played… by Daniel Craig that is!
James Bond himself couldn't have gone undercover any better!
