The news that Tom Hardy would have a role in Star Wars: Episode VIII is relatively new, and we now know exactly what that role will be.
Hardy will play a First Order Stormtrooper who recognizes FN-2187 or, Finn. Finn will apparently be on a secret mission as a Stormtrooper but Hardy’s character doesn’t not realize it. He believes that FN-2187 is a spy for The First Order. Finn is surprised when he is let go by Hardy’s character.
Hardy’s role is similar to Daniel Craig’s appearance as a Stormtrooper in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Of course we never see their faces but it’s still pretty cool!
It is also rumored that Prince’s William and Harry will also be making cameos in the film as Stormtroopers.
