What happened when James Bond met Han Solo? The perfect man was created?
The Sun today reveals that Daniel was so desperate to be involved, he begged his pal, director JJ Abrams, for a role, bit part, third Ewok from the right, anything - and said he'd be happy to have his name left off the posters and have his face hidden.
According to the newspaper, this cameo role was filmed this week, when Daniel was spotted on set at Pinewood, hanging out with his good friend Carrie Fisher, who is reprising her iconic role of Princess Leia for the rebooted franchise.
It does make you wonder, though... who else might lurking behind that Wooky fur?
If true, Daniel will be joining newbies Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac and 'Game of Thrones' Amazonian Gwendoline Christie and Oscar-winner Lupita Nyong'o, as well as veterans of the Millennium Falcon Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher and a still-recuperating Harrison Ford, recovering from the injury incurred when the Falcon door fell on him.
'Star Wars: Episode VII' will be in UK cinemas from December 2015.
