Oliver is a big Star Wars fan, having dressed as a stormtrooper in the past when he walked his children to school. Apparently, Oliver has been training with other stormtroopers at Pinewood Studios to get ready for the role, which makes it seem like it could be something a little more than a stand-in.

Oliver isn’t the first big celeb to be rumored to getting a part as a stormtrooper in Star Wars: Episode IX.

Recently, it was revealed singer Ed Sheeran will also get to wear the iconic costume. In Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Daniel Craig played a stormtrooper with the designation JB-007 that guarded Rey when she was held prisoner.

The Sun states a Star Wars leaker stated:

"“He took it really seriously because it has been a dream come true, but he’s been sworn to secrecy.”"

The Star Wars: Episode IX leaks haven’t been too meaty just yet. They’ve been mostly about who will be a stormtrooper with a few leaks regarding smaller things happening such as Rey’s lightsaber and Kylo Ren’s helmet. This latest leak is just another small taste of what’s to come as we are just less than a year away from the worldwide release.
