Just when we thought we couldn't get anymore excited for the impending release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Simon Pegg goes and drops this amazing Easter Egg on us!

In a lucky turn of events for us, the fans, Simon Pegg accidentally revealed that a certain James Bond has turned to the Dark side... Specifically Daniel Craig! Daniel's small cameo part in Force Awakens was revealed last year, despite the fact the identity of his character will remain a mystery in the film as his face will be concealed.

Speaking at the recent London premiere of Man Up, Pegg was asked by reporters about his rumoured cameo in the latest J.J. Abrams directed installment. What happened next, nobody seen coming!

Speaking to the Sun newspaper, Pegg stated:

I wasn't a Stormtrooper. Daniel Craig, he was a Stormtrooper.

I shouldn't have said that.

Although quickly retracting the statement, it's clear to see that 007 will be beneath one of the masks. Does this mean the storm troopers we are set too see in Force Awakens will finally be able to aim...? Probably not, no.

It has long been rumored about what role Daniel Craig's small cameo in the film would be, with an inside source quoting:

Daniel asked for some sort of secret cameo role - and was happy to have his name left off the posters. Fans will love trying to work out which covered up character is him.

The question remains then, will Daniel Craig's stormtrooper play a pivotal role in a minor scene? Or will he just blend in amongst the rest of the army. YOU decide in the poll below!

Daniel Craig is currently filming the Skyfall follow-up Spectre, which will also star Ralph Fiennes as M, Monica Bellucci, Christoph Waltz, Andrew Sctott, Naomie Harris and Ben Whishaw.
