Justin Theroux Reportedly Has A Role In Star Wars: The Last Jedi

MSW reports that a fan-favorite actor Justin Theroux from HBO’s The Leftovers will be playing a part in Star Wars: The Last Jedi. The actor has made a fine living playing characters that are unusual, interesting, villainous or absolute jerks, so he might be right at home playing a character in a scene in which he reportedly has a part in. Read on for more!



From MakingStarWars:


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 Dubovnik 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 Justin 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.



The actor’s most notable role is Adam Kesher in David Lynch’s Mulholland Drive, in which he played an apparently successful, director who endures one humiliation after another. He has also appeared in the hit series Inland Empire and is known as a screenwriter for films such as Iron Man 2 and Tropic Thunder. Recently he has starred in the HBO series The Leftovers and also appeared in the 2016 film ‘The Girl on the Train’.


Given that the actor has been rumored for only one scene, it’s likely that he will only have this small role in the film. Still, as far as casting goes, you can’t go wrong with someone like Theroux.


What do you think?  Do you think Theroux will be a villian or a good guy? Share you thoughts with us below….

    Cool. We never got to see the Star Wars version of a hacker before in one of the films, so it’ll be interesting to see how they portray this with the often rudimentary computer screens used in the films.

    Also SpaceHackerman. There, called it.

    Also also. The leftovers is great, can’t wait for season 3!

      R2 hacks into systems all the time. Probably be something similar.

    This guy married Jennifer Aniston. What a lucky bantha!

    So Theroux is basically the luckiest dude on the planet. He has Jennifer Aniston and now he’s in Star Wars.

      Yeah, he has Star Wars and he’s in Jennifer Aniston.

    Pretty neat to have the Prime Minister of Canada in Star Wars.

    Almost broke out the GOTG gif again…then I realized he’s Mr. Aniston! Ahhhhh….that’s the guy every other guy hates 🙂

    What a time to be alive.

    Slicer eh? Could he be Conder from the Aftermath trilogy?

    If Rey is not Luke’s daughter, I’m still rooting on the idea that there’s a Skywalker son somewhere wondering the Galaxy..so..

    I hope he is an alien and not a human. I am really getting bored of the overuse of humans in the starwars universe. Give us more main characters that are aliens.

    • March 30, 2017 at 8:46 am

      Exactly, I want an all alien film if the Disney really wants to push the envelope an all droid one too. Like what Henson did with The Dark Crystal and puppets if they want to make a film that everyone will remember.

        like when the rogue one cast was like “yeah our characters were so diverse” heh! it was racist on a starwars scale. Not a single alien.

  • March 30, 2017 at 4:04 am

    Probably a stormtrooper.

    Please be an early April Fool’s joke. As someone else said on here yesterday, “I prefer the Bieber cameo”. Shit, The aborted N*Sync one isn’t looking so bad now.
