Benicio Del Toro confirms Episode VIII role “might happen”

Benicio Del Toro has been recently rumoured as playing a villain in Episode VIII. Here’s what he told Entertainment Tonight:

I can’t tell you much about it but I think that it might happen. It looks like it’s gonna happen so I’m very excited… I can’t talk too much about it. The script is hard to get. They told me they’d cut my finger if I talk about it… I saw the original one when it came out and it marked me. I was impressed by the film and by the characters and by the story and the message.

Episode VIII, to be written and directed by Looper‘s Rian Johnson, is set for release on 26 May, 2017, one day after the 40th anniversary of the original Star Wars.

  3. I think he would make for a GREAT Admiral THRAWN!!!! :D

    for some reason, i picture him with his skin painted blue and red slit eyes… with a massive art collection and those force-sucking tree worms growing all around his office (what were those called, again?)

    yeah. I can see it! :D
