‘Star Wars’ Alum Confirms Cameo in ‘Rogue One’

Spoiler Warning for “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.”

A certain “Star Wars” alum has revealed he will be appearing in “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.”

Jimmy Smits, who played Bail Organa in “Attack of the Clones” and “Revenge of the Sith,” confirmed on The Talk that he will show up in “Rogue One.”

“Can you say the word cameo?” he said laughing. “Can you say the words small part?”

Star Wars fans will know that Bail Organa was the adoptive father to Princess Leia. He also bit the dust in “A New Hope” after the Death Star blows up the planet Alderaan. However, since “Rogue One” takes place before “A New Hope,” Smits’ character has yet to meet his end and is presumably working with the rest of the growing Rebel Alliance.

This won’t be the first time that Smits has returned to his Star Wars role. He offered his voice to the “Star Wars: The Force Unleashed” video game back in 2008.

Bail Organa isn’t the only classic Star Wars character showing up in “Rogue One.” It was confirmed earlier this year that the big man himself, Darth Vader, would be making an appearance.
