Tom Hardy Is Being Cryptic About His Possible Involvement In Star Wars: Episode 8 There has been a rumour doing the rounds that Tom Hardy might have a role in Star Wars: Episode 8. It is not for anything massive, with it possible he would just be a Stormtrooper, much like Daniel Craig in The Force Awakens. Well, the Hollywood Reporter asked the actor point blank, and it seems something is up, even if he is being cryptic. When asked if he is going to be a Stormtrooper, Hardy said: I don’t know if I can even say that. Where did you hear that? [The internet.] Ah, the internet is a glorious web of deceit and misinformation, isn’t it?
