RUMOR: Justin Theroux May Have Role In ‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’

RUMOR: 'The Leftovers' star Justin Theroux may have a role in director Rian Johnson's 'Star Wars: The Last Jedi' as an "expert slicer."


Star Wars: The Last Jedi will feature the long-awaited return of fan-favorite heroes including Rey and Finn, but it will also introduced a handful of brand new characters to the saga. Now, Making Star Wars reports a rumor that The Leftovers star Justin Theroux will have a role in the highly anticipated film and shared details on his alleged character.

Making Star Wars writes:

Theroux will be playing “an expert slicer” and we’re hearing he has a pivotal moment. His costume is pretty interesting as well. Imagine Indiana Jones’ white tuxedo from Temple of Doom but weirder and with a Star Wars twist. Theroux’s character wears a white tuxedo style jacket over a black suit. His sequences fit into the casino section of the film where we saw Dubrovnik exteriors shot last year.

Introduced to the Star Wars saga are newcomers Laura Dern, Kelly Marie Tran and Benicio del Toro.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi will be released in theaters on December 15, 2017.
