Last May we brought you a delicious rumor about a potential Tom Hardy cameo in Star Wars Episode VIII. Well, now we're getting the age old non-confirmation confirmation that this whole thing is more or less going down exactly as reported.
During an interview with The Hollywood Reporter in which Hardy was grilled about his reputation for being difficult, a small question was slipped in about the Star Wars rumor. Hardy, ever the delight in any interview, was left more or less speechless by the fact that the rumor about his cameo was spoiled nearly a year ago...
Rumor has it you're going to be a Stormtrooper in the next Star Wars movie. True?
I don't know if I can even say that. Where did you hear that?
Ah, the internet is a glorious web of deceit and misinformation, isn't it? (Laughs.)
So that's misinformation?
It could be, couldn't it?
So points to Hardy for not denying it, but rather casting doubt on anything one might read on the internet. And where did I read that tidbit? Where else but the internet?! Well played, Tom Hardy, well played.
