Christian Bale Just Wants To Hit His Head On a Door in Star Wars as a stormtrooper who bumps his head
Christian Bale still wants to be in Star Wars, even if it means being a rank-and-file stormtrooper.
During an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, the former Batman star revealed that he would still love to head to the galaxy far, far away… and he has a very specific role in mind.
“All I ever wanted in Star Wars was to be in a Star Wars outfit and hit my head on a door or something as I walked through,” he said. “The real nerds who watched Star Wars way too many times always knew about that one scene where the Stormtrooper hits his head on the door as he comes through. I wanted to be that guy. That was it.”
It’s not exactly a starring role, but I get the feeling it wouldn’t be out of the question. After all, 007 actor Daniel Craig made his Star Wars debut as a First Order stormtrooper in The Force Awakens.
And it’s nice to know that Bale is a bit of a Star Wars fan, too.
After all, he knows all about the infamous moment when a stormtrooper bumped his head in Star Wars: A New Hope.
Bale recently appeared in Thor: Love and Thunder as the comic book villain, Gorr the God Butcher, and with a history at Marvel/Disney, it’s not out of the question that he might know someone who can help him don a stormtrooper uniform.

“But look, if I’m fortunate enough to be more than that, oh man, yeah,” he said. “What a delight that would be. I’ve still got the figures from when I was little. I also know Kathy Kennedy very well because she was working with Spielberg when I did Empire of the Sun, and now, she runs the Star Wars universe.”
Will the former Batman get the chance to join the Empire? For now, we’ll have to wait and see.
