Daniel Craig Is Actually In ‘The Force Awakens’

By December 18, 2015

That damn James Bond fooled us all. Earlier this year,  Entertainment Weekly asked Daniel Craig about rumors he had a small cameo in The Force Awakens. Craig responded in classic cool Daniel Craig I-don’t-give-a-sh*t-about-anything manner with:

Why would I ever bother doing something like that? F*cking Hell – Pffft. Play an extra in another movie.

I think that was my favorite quote I’ve ever written. You can taste the defiance (he was in that movie). As it turns out Daniel Craig doesn’t just lie to beautiful women as James Bond. He also plays with writer’s minds.

According to sources of Entertainment Weekly not to be named, Craig was at England’s Pinewood Studios filming Spectre right next door and indeed filmed a small cameo for JJ Abrams on the set of glorious Star Wars. Apparently he just did it for “Shits and grins“. Seriously is Daniel Craig playing James Bond or is James Bond about Daniel Craig being a supreme badass on all accounts?

SPOILER ALERT! In order to tell you who Craig is we have to drop a Force Awakens spoiler. So if you haven’t seen the movie….look no further than this picture young Jedi.

That storm trooper is Daniel Craig! Finkel is Einhornl! It’s the scene where Ren says “You will remove these restraints and leave this cell with the door open” and the storm trooper Bond is all like “I’ll tighten those restraints, scavenger scum”.  Then comes the line that had me laughing still five minutes later whence the force actually works and she gets him to drop his weapon as well.

No-one is going to believe this but I knew there was something special about that storm trooper. That’s right. Daniel Craigs acting game is so strong not even the Empire can’t even keep him from shining. Did you guys enjoy the comedy The Force Awakens as much as I did? Stay tuned to Geek Nation for more stories of Craig badassery!

    Cool, I’ll be watching for the scene. I have a problem with Daniel Craig photo that heads this article. I would expect 007 to have the firearm acumen to know not to have his finger on the trigger of his PPK.
