Sources: Justin Theroux To Join ‘The Last Jedi’ Cast

According to sources who have spoken with Making Star Wars, actor Justin Theroux will be part of the cast for director Rian Johnson’s The Last Jedi. The information that MSW reportedly received about Theroux’s casting are provided below, but be sure to take this information with a grain of salt for the time being until/if we hear directly from Lucasfilm.

Theroux will be playing “an expert slicer” and we’re hearing he has a pivotal moment. His costume is pretty interesting as well. Imagine Indiana Jones’ white tuxedo from Temple of Doom but weirder and with a Star Wars twist. Theroux’s character wears a white tuxedo style jacket over a black suit. His sequences fit into the casino section of the film where we saw Dubrovnik exteriors shot last year. If you’re curious, take a look at those Dubovnik photos and the extras dressed up there to get a better idea of his costume. He looks a little fancier than most and almost has a James Bond look about him.
