Justin Theroux is in Star Wars: The Last Jedi and we have some details

We’ve learned some really fun new casting info about everyone’s favorite film of 2017 Star Wars: The Last Jedi. The Leftovers star Justin Theroux has a role in The Last Jedi.

rehost 2016 9 13 bb80c2a5 6599 44a2 8b2b 109ea11704fd e1490672711368 1024x788 - Justin Theroux is in Star Wars: The Last Jedi and we have some details
HBO 2014 The Leftovers Episode 105 “B.J. and the A.C.”

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. If you’re curious, take a look at those Dubrovnik photos and the extras dressed up there to get a better idea of his costume. He looks a little fancier than most and almost has a James Bond look about him.

We have heard there was an explosion during a sequence shot on the “casino” set at Pinewood and perhaps Theroux plays a part in that. It isn’t immediately clear if he’s a good guy or a villain but he is dressed rather well to say the least.

Check back for more on The Last Jedi soon!
