Is Adrian Edmondson in Star Wars: The Last Jedi?

Did You Spot This Comedy Legend in Star Wars: The Last Jedi?

Everyone wants in on Star Wars, no matter how small the role, which is why there are so many notable cameos in Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Director Rian Johnson found spots for friends, Star Wars megafans, and frequent collaborators, and everyone from Prince William and Prince Harry to Justin Theroux got a few seconds of intergalactic fame.

But we were also treated to an unexpected face appearing alongside General Hux in some of the film's early scenes, in a minor speaking part. Yes, that really is comedian Adrian Edmondson as First Order bad guy Captain Peavey!

The Bottom and The Young Ones star may be best know to many of us for his comic roles in the '80s and '90s, but in more recent years, he's made the move to drama and has become a stalwart of British television. He played Count Ilya Rostov in the latest adaptation of War and Peace and just appeared in ITV drama Bancroft.

Since a large part of the film was made at London's Pinewood Studios, it's no surprise that a number of recognisable Brits make an appearance, so why shouldn't Ade be one of them? It also gave Rian, clearly a fan of Ade's early work with the late Rik Mayall, a chance to have some fun on Twitter.
