We here at JOE love Tom Hardy. We also love Star Wars. So we love this story.

Star Wars news site Making Star Wars is reporting that Mad Max himself will be popping up in Star Wars Episode VIII to play a Stormtrooper who has history with John Boyega's character Finn.

According to reports, Hardy's Stormtrooper is going bump into Finn during the next adventure and make a few jokes about how he's working as a Resistance spy.

The news would be a nice continuation from Episode VII's casting of well known celebrity actors in cameos.

<Mild spoilers for Star Wars Episode VII - The film you should have probably watched by now because it's one of the highest earning films of all time, but we're still nice folks who respect internet etiquette.>
