“Mad Max: Fury Road” star Tom Hardy is reportedly set to make a cameo in “Star Wars Episode VIII”.

According to MakingStarWars.net, the 38-year-old actor will star as a First Order stormtrooper in the sequel to “Star Wars: The Force Awakens”.

Hardy’s character will reportedly run into Finn a.k.a. FN-2187 (John Boyega), whom he surprisingly lets go after a comical sequence of events.

If the rumour is true, Hardy will follow in the footsteps of fellow British actor Daniel Craig.

The “Spectre” actor appeared briefly in “The Force Awakens” as a stormtrooper, but never took off his helmet. Simon Pegg provided his voice for the junkyard alien Unkar Platt, while comedians Bill Hader and Ben Schwartz voiced BB-8. “Star Wars Episode VIII” is set to be released in the US on December 15, 2017.
