Josh Gad has been a busy boy in Hollywood, from breaking out in Frozen as lovable Olaf to voicing goofy sidekick Le Fou in the hotly anticipated Beauty and the Beast. He’s currently filming Murder on the Orient Express and one of his co-stars just happens to be Daisy Ridley, who will be reprising her role as Rey in the upcoming Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Gad is a huge Star Wars fan and over the last several weeks, he’s been hounding Ridley for spoilers — with less-than-stellar results.
He refuses to give up, you gotta give him that.
And he may have broken her with this biggie.
Or so we thought. In his final attempt to get Daisy to spill, Josh pulled out all the stops and enlisted the help of quite a few famous folks, who asked her questions that she obviously isn’t allowed to answer.
This has been a battle of attrition. #daisyridley has been a force to be reckoned with. In many ways she is the Vader to my Luke or the Taylor to my Katy. But like any good opponent, I have tried to outmaneuver her at every turn. This will be her final judgement. May the force be with her, because kids, she is going to need it. All I ask is that you don’t ruin the surprise for others. #TheLastJedi #starwars #broughtsomefriendsalongfortheride @disney @starwars @penelopecruzoficial @prattprattpratt @brycedhoward @colintrevorrow @leslieodomjr @lucyboynton1 @brycedhoward @derek.connolly #tombateman @jjabramsofficial
With the exception of caving to Dame Judi Dench, because you can’t NOT tell Dame Judi Dench everything, Daisy is a rock. Not even the likes of Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Penelope Cruz, Leslie Odom Jr. or even J.J. Abrams himself can get her yapping. Damn, The Force is strong with her. If she can withstand this kind of pressure, we’re never going to find out anything about the next Star Wars movie. Watch out, John Boyega, Josh will be coming for you next.
