First Details On Forest Whitaker's ROGUE ONE Character?

Up until now we hadn't heard a single thing about the character Forest Whitaker is playing in Gareth Edwards' Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, but we might just have some very interesting details. Still a rumor for now, but click on to find out what we've got...

Though we've gotten a glimpse of our team of Rebel heroes, specific details on all of the characters in Gareth Edwards' Rogue One: A Star Wars Story still remain shrouded in mystery - and we arguably know least about whoever Forest Whitaker (The Crying Game, Smoke, The Last King Of Scotland) is playing, as the actor has yet to speak to the media about his role.

But now, thanks to Making Star Wars, we might just have our first few details on his character.


"It appears he has one leg and uses a cane as a crutch to walk. Earlier reports made it seem like he might have one leg but the clarification on the topic is a “robot leg.”

He appears to be a veteran of some battles, but it isn’t clear if he lost his leg fighting in The Clone Wars or against the Empire.

Based on a differentiated code name from the rest of the rebels in the movie, it appears he is likely good but maybe a bounty hunter affiliated type.

He has a cape and his costume is a hodgepodge of different things (think of someone you might see at Maz’s Castle)".

So, a robotic-legged badass with a cape, who might even be a bounty hunter of some description. Sounds pretty cool indeed.

Obviously none of this has been confirmed so take it with the usual pinch of salt, but it shouldn't be too much longer before we begin to get some official info on Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.
