Karl Urban Reveals His Secret Stormtrooper Cameo in Rise of Skywalker

While making the rounds for Season 2 of The Boys, actor Karl Urban dropped a fun nugget of info: he cameoed as a stormtrooper in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. The scene in question features two stormtroopers watching the Knights of Ren walk past them down a hallway.

“Here’s the process. I had the good fortune to go and visit J.J. Abrams while he was shooting ‘The Rise of Skywalker,’” Urban told Digital Spy. “While I was there, he put me in a stormtrooper uniform and we had a really fun day on set.” 

The actor’s voice actually made the cut as well with his only line being, “Knights of Ren.”

Obviously, Abrams and Urban have a working relationship as the duo teamed up for Star Trek and Star Trek Into Darkness. In the meantime, check out Urban in the upcoming The Boys Season 2.

In Season 2, The Boys are on the run from the law, hunted by the Supes, and desperately trying to regroup and fight back against Vought. In hiding, Hughie (Jack Quaid), Mother’s Milk (Laz Alonso), Frenchie (Tomer Capon), and Kimiko (Karen Fukuhara) try to adjust to a new normal, with Butcher (Karl Urban) nowhere to be found. Meanwhile, Starlight (Erin Moriarty) must navigate her place in The Seven as Homelander (Antony Starr) sets his sights on taking complete control. His power is threatened with the addition of Stormfront (Aya Cash), a social-media-savvy new Supe, who has an agenda of her own. On top of that, the Supervillain threat takes center stage and makes waves as Vought seeks to capitalize on the nation’s paranoia.

The Boys is an irreverent take on what happens when superheroes, who are as popular as celebrities, as influential as politicians and as revered as gods, abuse their superpowers rather than use them for good. It’s the powerless against the super powerful as The Boys embark on a heroic quest to expose the truth about the supergroup known as “The Seven.” The show retains most of the comics (available for purchase here) boundary-pushing violence and sexuality while exploring the dark side of superhero celebrity and fame.

The series was created by Evan Goldberg and Seth Rogen, who are responsible for another subversive comic book-inspired series, AMC’s Preacher, and Supernatural creator Eric Kripke.

Season 1 is available for streaming on Amazon Prime Video with Season 2 scheduled to debut on Friday, September 4.
