Fans are asking if Harry Styles has just been confirmed as the latest secret big-name Brit to appear in Star Wars .
The 1D star is a huge fan of the hit films – and Luke Skywalker himself has teased him as a Stormtrooper.
Movie legend Mark Hamill got everyone talking late on Monday night.
The 68-year-old tweeted a mocked-up version of Harry in the special suit for Rise of Skywalker.
If it is true, that would mean another UK male gets the job following in the footsteps of Princes William and Harry, Tom Hardy and James Bond star Daniel Craig.
Harry has yet to comment but fans are already very excited – even though they won't actually see him in the film if he did get the nod.
Hamill tweeted: "Tonight #TheRiseOfSkywalker Premiere finally brings closure to my dysfunctional family! Wonder who'll be the #SecretStormtrooper in this one? Considering they've all been UK Superstars (2 Royals+2 Actors) but still no singer, all the clues point in one direction: #Stylestrooper ".
It would be a dream come true for Harry, who came close to landing a role in the space saga two years ago.
He very nearly filled Harrison Ford's shoes as the iconic character Han Solo.
"Harry was one of the early names in contention when the studio looked at Han Solo," a source said.
"Even though he had virtually no acting experience, they saw he had huge star potential and would give the solo project enormous publicity."
Harry has also recently spoken about his sexuality and says he hopes people can respect that they're not getting the answers they really want.
The 1D megastar will still not publicly define himself – but says he isn't being evasive just to make himself seem more interesting.
But speaking to The Guardian 's Weekend Magazine, the 25-year-old said: "What I would say, about the whole being asked about my sexuality thing – this is a job where you might get asked.
"To complain about it – to say you hate it and still do the job – that's just silly.
"You respect that someone's gonna ask. And you hope that they respect they might not get an answer.
"It's not like I'm sitting on an answer and protecting it, and holding it back. It's not a case of: I'm not telling you cos I don't want to tell you.
"It's not: ooh this is mine and it's not yours. It's: who cares? Does that make sense? It's just: who cares?"Source: Read Full Article
