Whether or not as Bane, Mad Max, or Man In Airplane In Dunkirk, Tom Hardy is usually unrecognizable and/or unintelligible. He’s particularly exhausting to see or hear in Star Wars: The Final Jedi, as a result of in contrast to Justin Theroux, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and Edgar Wright, his cameo didn’t make the ultimate minimize. Hardy’s scene was neglected of the theatrical model as a consequence of him reportedly being too brief to play a Stormtrooper, and in addition as a result of it’s actually bizarre, even for a film the place our grizzled Jedi hero drinks green-milk from a beachside mutant-manatee.
The deleted scene takes place within the time between Finn, Rose, and DJ infiltrating the Supremacy, and the welcome return of Captain Phasma. Whereas wearing First Order uniforms, the nice guys (and in addition DJ) run into a gaggle of Stormtroopers in an elevator, together with one performed by Hardy (“926”) who has a historical past with Finn, or as he was recognized, “FN-2187.” Additionally, “926” has a Southern accent, which sounds odd in a Star Wars film. It’s a taut second of drama, the place it looks like a blaster battle is brewing, however the stress breaks when “926” notes, “I do know I’m not purported to provoke contact with officers, however I by no means took you for captain materials.” He then enthusiastically slaps Finn on the butt.
It will have felt misplaced in The Final Jedi, however that’s what deleted scenes are for, and you may Hardy in all his butt-slapping glory beneath.
