Joseph Gordon-Levitt Also Has a Cameo in ‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’
While a handful of cameos in The Last Jedi remain rumored, director Rian Johnson has confirmed at least one actor to look (or listen) out for in the upcoming Star Wars sequel. Joseph Gordon-Levitt, who appeared in Johnson’s three previous films, will also appear in The Last Jedi. News of the actor’s cameo comes not long after John Boyega (jokingly?) confirmed three others, including Tom Hardy and a pair of particularly notable princes.
Despite Boyega’s (seemingly not entirely serious) comments, the Prince William and Prince Harry cameos remain rumored — for now. But Johnson did confirm one cameo while promoting The Last Jedi in Japan. The director told Premiereport (via Star Wars News Net) that Joseph Gordon-Levitt has a small role in the Star Wars sequel…or his voice does, anyway. Johnson did not say whether he’s playing a Stormtrooper or a pilot or a CG alien, any of which seems likely, but Gordon-Levitt’s involvement isn’t exactly surprising. The actor starred in Johnson’s films Brick and Looper, and had a small, uncredited part in The Brothers Bloom. He’s not the only Johnson regular who will appear in The Last Jedi; Gordon-Levitt’s Looper co-star Noah Segan also has a small, undisclosed role.
Other potential celebrity cameos in The Last Jedi include Justin Theroux, Rogue One director Gareth Edwards, and the aforementioned trio of Tom Hardy and Princes William and Harry — all of whom are rumored to be playing Stormtroopers, similar to Daniel Craig’s cameo in The Force Awakens.
Star Wars: The Last Jedi hits theaters on December 15.
