Benicio Del Toro confirms his role in Star Wars Episode VIII

In an interview with Spanish radio to promote his current film Perfect Day, Benicio Del Toro was asked about rumours suggesting his involvement in 2017's Star Wars: Episode VIII.

In response to the question, Del Toro said "…the thing is, they don’t let me talk too much about it, I’m like the villain."

There have been plenty of rumours over the actor's involvement in the film but this is the first thing that comes close to a confirmation. Right now we have no idea WHO he'll play but we're pretty sure he won't be on the light side of the force now!

Other recent rumours hint that Orphan Black star Tatiana Maslany up against Olivia Cooke and Gina Rodriguez for a major role in the film.

Star Wars: Episode VIII arrives in cinemas in 2017.
