Courtesy of Star Wars News Net we have this fun story from the set of Rogue One. Alan Tudyk recently took part in a Reddit AMA to promote his upcoming ConMan web TV show.
Tudyk revealed that a character based around the role of Wray Nerely from ConMan was created for Rogue One but subsequently cut from the movie:
I had a cameo I just found out got cut.” he said. Yeah, I guess it’s a cameo- Wray Nerely. So the character that I play in Con Man, sort of my alter ego in Con Man, had a role in Rouge One. I played a pilot, and the scene got cut. I just found out. Did Wray Nerely survive? I was really looking forward to seeing Wray Nerely in Star Wars, but truthfully Wray Nerely would never get that good of a job. So it was probably pretty good that he didn’t.”
It looks life after the cancellation of Firefly we are destined to never see Tudyk’s face behind the flight stick of a spacecraft. We have to settle for his digital portrayal of Rogue One’s K-2SO to do the flying!
