At the London premiere of Man Up, Simon Pegg spoke out of turn about Star Wars and revealed Craig's role:

"I wasn't a Stormtrooper. Daniel Craig, he was a Stormtrooper.  I shouldn't have said that."

Considering Craig's previous roles, I'm hopeful that his Stormtrooper will be a decent shot.

Did Daisy Ridley Just Give Away Who Her Star Wars VII Character Is?

Production has kept a pretty tight lid on most of Star Wars: The Force Awakens' secrets, but rumors fly and sometimes actors let things slip.  In the video above, Rey actress Daisy Ridley drops a pretty big hint that all but confirms who she really plays in the movie. 

According to Ridley, "I'm solitary, that's how I begin, that's probably a big clue."  Solitary, eh? As in... Solo?  The leading theory on the internet is that she is the daughter of Han and Leia, which her "solo" joke seems to confirm.  We've also seen her alongside Han on the cover of Vanity Fair, where she definitely looks like she could be his daughter:

Two mega nerds from Essex, Matt Kingsnorth and Phil St Pier, are trying their luck with sending an actual X-Wing toy to space to get JJ Abrams' attention.  Regardless of whether or not they get tickets, seeing an X-Wing's real life space flight is worth a watch.  See more of its flight (and its crash landing), in the video below.



If you want to help them get to the premiere, don't forget to tweet!

We've known for a while that Brienne of Tarth actress Gwendoline Christie would be in Star Wars VII, but Vulture is reporting her role is that of the Chrome Trooper.  Not much is known about this character, but if it is Gwendoline under there, here's hoping we get to see her without the chrome dome too.

Game of Thrones has already got the hand ampuation thing down; maybe Jaime can join Brienne for an epic saber fight?



Hey, a fan can dream, right?
