Tom Hardy’s Star Wars VIII Cameo Rumored to Involve Slapping John Boyega’s Ass
This year is going to be a long one for Star Wars fans. With Rogue One firmly in the rear-view mirror, fans of the epic series are looking at another ten months of waiting, before Star Wars VII: The Last Jedi’s release on December 15, 2017. Thankfully, as we slowly creep along towards the end of the year, details continue to trickle in from various sources, which should help sate our hunger for all things Star Wars. In a surprising turn of events, the newest set of details revolves around Tom Hardy’s potential cameo role in the film, which apparently involves him slapping John Boyega’s ass. Details and possible spoilers can be found underneath the concerned-yet-slightly-aroused Finn.
According to Making Star Wars, Tom Hardy will be playing the role of a stormtrooper who used to be friends with Finn back when he was still FN-2187, before he had his identity crisis and helped blow up a planet while lots of his former coworkers were still on it. Moving on, this scene allegedly takes place on a First Order Super Star Destroyer, which Finn has infiltrated as part of his mission, disguised as an Officer within the First Order.
“The gist is that a stormtrooper that used to know Finn slaps his ass; knowing him back when he was FN-2187, the trooper clearly doesn’t know what actually happened on Starkiller Base. We were told Finn was undercover in the sequence and we figured the trooper thought Finn was undercover too, hence their unusual interaction. However, knowing he wears this uniform, we now think there’s a solid chance the trooper is congratulating Finn on his promotion within the First Order itself, not congratulating him for becoming a Resistance Infiltrator as we first interpreted the information.”
This would make for a pretty hilarious interaction to see on the big screen, and it would hands down beat out Daniel Craig’s stormtrooper cameo from The Force Awakens. Y’know, the one where Rey subdues the current James Bond with her mind and forces him to abandon his post (and he drops his weapon). I love this series. That said, these are still just rumors at this point, so the best we can do right now is hope for some Tom Hardy on John Boyega ass-slapping action.
So, what do you think of Tom Hardy’s potential cameo? Do you think it’s true? If so, what do you think Finn is doing on a First Order Star Destroyer? Let us know in the comments section below, and as always, stay tuned to DFTG for all the latest Star Wars news!
