Daniel Craig rubbishes ‘Star Wars’ cameo rumours

“James Bond” star Daniel Craig has rubbished the rumours of making a cameo appearance in the forthcoming “Star Wars” movie.


The 47-year-old actor, busy putting the finishing touches on his fourth movie as the British spy “Spectre”, asked “Why would i ever bother doing something like that”, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

“Pffft. Play an extra in another movie?” the superstar said about the possibility of a short part in the seventh instalment of “Star Wars”, entitled “The Force Awakens”.

Simon Pegg had revealed that the big screen icon would be making a brief turn as a Stormtrooper.
“Talk to Simon Pegg. He obviously knows way more than I do. He’s just jealous because he’s not in Star Wars. He’s got some issue with (Star Wars director J J Abrams). I don’t know what it is. You need to talk to Simon about it,” he added.

“Star Wars: The Force Awakens” gets a theatrical release on December 18, 2015, while Spectre will be out on October 23.
